German postcrossers: please use an envelop & put your address on the back. Recently Deutsche post has contracted a lousy the mail delivery org that easily sends mail back even it the address is correct.
I am a recently retired librarian, i live in Amsterdam and i like Postcrossing, reading, riding with my bicycle through nature and walking with my old Old English Sheepdog.
I'm a vegetarian: nature and sustainabilty are important for me and for the rest of the world too :) .
Special theme for 2018 as my retirement is still very recent and i am getting slowly used to it:
People at work, especially women (old cards, vintage reprints)

- libra (my zodiac sign)
- vintage reprints, Amsterdam before WW1, motorcycles, ads, travel posters, pin-up girls

Please tell me a little bit about what you did today, or
- what is your favorite book? (Or books) Or author(s)
- how is the weather where you live,
- did you read a nice quote recently,
- or tell me anything else
Please date your card.
I love decorated cards and nice stamps, and -if that doesn't cost you more- i'd prefer an envelop, so i can save the card and the stamp separately, (I collect stamps, so if you have redundant ones and you include yor address i will send a thank you card back :) ) (preference: literary (books) scenes/ characters)
And if you make your own envelopes, do please send me one, I think that is awesome!
My 'favorites' on the wall are cards I do not yet have and would love to receive.
I'd love to see your card in the mail, take care
