Greetings from Canada! I'm originally from the Chicago area, and now live in Leduc, just south of Edmonton, Alberta's capital city.
I studied Scandinavian Language and Literature at the University of Alberta, and studied abroad at Uppsala University in Sweden. Feel free to write to me in any of the languages above, or in your own language if you'd like to give me a challenge!
The stamps are the first thing I look at when I get a postcard!
I love Europa stamps! Any current or past issues would make me smile. ☺️
If it's not too much trouble please ask for a postmark from your post office, I like to see when and where the postcard was mailed, and prevents the stamps from getting defaced by pen/sharpie.
I'd really appreciate it if you could use stamps from the country matching the Postcard ID! You can use travel mode to send with the ID of the country you're mailing from.
I scan all the postcards I receive, so please don't be alarmed if I delete the image you upload, it will be replaced in time!
Here are the cards I've received, I know I'm far behind on updating: http://dannydiloveyourwork.tumblr.com/tagged/postcrossing
Favourites are cards that I have received, as well as cards that I would like to receive.
