my name is Kristin and I live in carnival city Cologne/North-Rhine-Westfalia but my hometown is lovely Dresden/Saxony.
I just love to travel all around the world, to see new things, experience different cultures, enjoy exotic food/drinks, meet friendly people and to write and also to get postcards - of course! ;o)
Hopefully I can get/write a postcard from/to every country registered here - please help me! ;o)
I´m open for direct swaps and visits - just ask.
I´m an engineer of Cartography (mapmaking) so I love postcards showing (old/ancient/comic/handmade (e.g. https://www.postcrossing.com/postcards/DE-4137886)) maps (e.g. https://www.postcrossing.com/postcards/ID-118032) (of the city/region or country) or postcards with multiviews (e.g. https://www.postcrossing.com/postcards/BG-40989) of typical sights of your city/region/country. Retro and vintage cards of your city/country are also very welcome. If you have something unique and special (e.g. "Greetings from..." by Postallove - https://www.postcrossing.com/postcards/TW-1533142, unofficial ones like https://www.postcrossing.com/postcards/CN-1837445 or cards of WOW, WT, ICONS, HPC ) - I´m glad to get this card. It would be very helpful to write your name clearly (more easily for me to thank you properly), to put a date on the card and to write something that comes to your mind (your favourite quote, book, things you like, recipes, anything...).
Please don't send flower, animal, comic, handmade, selfmade, fold-card, free and AD cards to me (only if they have something in common with maps) - maybe someone else will like them even more - no envelope as well - THANKS!
