I'm a 30 year old Turkish expat who lives in New York. I moved here 2 days before hurricane Sandy. Quite a welcome party I must say. (: Before that, I lived in the Netherlands, Brazil and Australia. Because of the weird flight routes I had to endure, I traveled around the world only going eastwards in the last two months. ((:
Aaanyway, about what I'd like to receive...
Well, all kinds of postcards are appreciated of course. (: I will not freak out if I receive some card not exactly fitting the "postcard" definition. I'm also amazed to see how some people write strict DEMANDS in their profiles. Well, I find them silly to say the least. This should be fun, not the opposite.
My favourite themes are:
- Books, libraries, etc.
- Old maps
- Inge Löök cards (especially the Old Ladies series) - other than http://www.postcrossing.com/postcards/RU-295666, http://www.postcrossing.com/postcards/FI-962199, http://plixi.com/p/71538034. I already have them. (:
- Atelier Nouvelles Images
- Art Unlimited cards
- Tea/coffee related
- Aurora Borealis/Northern Lights
- Dollhouses, miniature furniture, miniature food, etc., - as i love making and collecting them
- Humorous, fun, extraordinary, weird, bizarre ad/free cards or greeting cards
- Vintage cards
- Anything creative and extraordinary
- Two of my favourite bands are Tool and Morphine. So, related postcards will be MUCH appreciated. I wouldn't mind if you send Danny Carey himself. d:
- I don't really like tourism related postcards, multi-view postcards, etc. However, I like relics, castles, old buildings, local architecture, etc., especially if related information is also provided. (:
- Religious holidays
- Paperclip cards
- Christmas and Hannukah coming! Related cards/greeting cards are very welcome. (:
I'd be very happy if you could tell me a little bit about anything. It may be about the place you live, it may be about something you're excited about or something good that has happened to you recently. You can also write about stuff that bothers you. Just go on and let the steam off. (: I like the idea of sharing a sincere moment and witnessing a fragment of a total stranger's life with a few lines on a postcard. "Happy postcrossing" is a nice thing to say but I'd really appreciate it if you could give me a little bit more to read. (;
Thank you and happy postcrossing! (:
