Like most people, I like to receive mail that isn't some kind of invoice or other request for money ... so joining postcrossing was one of the best ideas I ever had :o)
First something about me : I am 36 and live and work near Belgium's capital Brussels. I love most furry and four-legged animals and am a cat fanatic : for the last 5 years, I have been bossed around by two adorable yet devilish british shorthair silver tabbies who rule the house. Learning languages is one of my favourite things to do and after some courses, I am now trying to study Japanese on my own. Besides this, a lot of my time goes to (in random order) travelling, penpalling, swapping, cooking/baking, reading, TV watching, music listening, making bentos and blogging ...
As for the cards to send, I'll probably like anything you'll send but these themes would be particularly appreciated :
- vintage cards and photos
- art cards
- tourist cards from your area (it's always nice to discover new horizons and see where I can go next on vacation :o))
- UNESCO sites
- architecture (buildings, skylines, ...)
- animals, preferably fourlegged and furry (please no bugs or spiders! - allowed exception: ladybugs/-birds and butterflies)
- humour cards
- nature scenes
Please no free or advertisement cards, unless you absolutely adore that card and can tell me why.
As always the guideline is : SEND SOMETHING YOU WOULD LIKE TO RECEIVE YOURSELF.
You can send the cards just stamped or in an envelope, it's all OK. Feel free to write something in your native tongue (with translation :o) ) as I love learning new languages.
Given the fact that not everybody uploads the sent postcards, you can see all the cards I sent here : http://www.flickr.com/photos/ceinwyn13/sets/72157604093189648/
