About Elke...

Hello, dear Postcrosser!

THANK YOU for sending me a card! My name is Elke, I am a geographer and I live near Stuttgart. I am married, we do have an adult daughter. My hobbies are nature, landscape management and nature conservation (also my profession), traveling, photography, reading, knitting, writing and receiving postcards/letters, stamps, gardening, meeting with friends and sharing a good meal and a glass of red wine...

I like postcards
... related to post and postcrossing
... showing sunflowers , beautiful trees or heart-shaped nature objects
... that show me a bit of the area where you come from - your city, a beautiful landscape, famous buildings, bridges, lighthouses etc. Your card is like an open window to see what other places and countries do look like.
And I do like map cards (collect US state cards).
If you do not know what to write - draw a sunflower on your card and/or write "SUNFLOWER" in your language! THANK YOU!

As a stamp collector I'd like to receive your card in an envelope if this doesn't mean extra postage for you. Receiving a card and a few used stamps from "somewhere in the world" always makes my day! All my duplicate stamps go to Bethel, a German charity organization.

Have a lot of postcrossing fun!
