Dear postcrossers, nice to meet everyone here!
I'm Svetlana from Russian Federation, the inquisitive and the positive person.
I'm fluent in English and in a process of studying Italian for my own pleasure. If Italian is your native language, please write me in it. If you're a Russian speaker, please write me in Russian. I love languages, how they work, how they sound, how they live, etc. I really appreciate if you write down a couple of words in your mother language.
I like to meet new people and make new friends. I'm looking forward for every postcard you've sent! If you want to write me a letter, it would be great! Envelopes? That's up to you!
I would be especially thankful to the people who send me fully-written postcards (❤️) with interesting real stamps including some information about yourself or your country, national cuisine, national costumes, your culture (especially music, art and dance) and history. Send me different types of beautiful cards of your own choice, I haven’t got the favorites; but if you want some more tips, here you are:
-books and writers,
-charming and fascinating places of your country (nature, churches, castles),
-transport (planes and trains),
-painted cities/towns, sightseeings
-cards with knitting and embroidery,
-Olympic Games, sport events
-figure skating, tennis, gymnastics, artistic swimming
-teddy bears or cute photos of animals
-Beatrix Potter's pictures, Paddington, Moomins, Krtek, Mickey Mouse and other national heroes of fairy-tales (but you should explain who is it).
-GF... (from the country of origin, I have CAN, FIN, FRA, GER, CZ, HK, IRL, ITA, JPN, LAT, MYS, NED, NOR, POL, RUS, TUR, TWN, USA)
-FOTW (I have BUL, CHN, CHE, CRI, ENG, FIN, GRE, HK, POR, ROM, TUR), IOTW (I have IRL, HK), WT series (I have EST, FIN, FRA, JPN, NED, RUS, TUR) (from the country of origin)
-maps, flags, coat of arms
-mail, stamps, postboxes
-shaped cards (in envelope, please)
-Seasonal cards: Birthday in April, Christmas and Easter
Connect me, please, if you have expired cards to me! As for me, I always register your card immediately after receiving.
Please never send me robots, transformers, Superman, Spider-Man, Star Wars, scary monsters, vampires, sculls, etc. I hate manga and anime. Hope there won't be the postcards with violence or religious symbols, cemeteries, politics. Exclude, please, everything old, used, trashy, horrible, gothic, dark, rude or nude (if it's not Michelangelo's David) or offensive, erotic and LGBT cards. I don't want to get AD, Touchnote, home-printed, folded and handmade cards. Also I think it's not fair to send Colosseum from China or Eiffel Tower from Chile. Thank you in advance.
Expired: yes,I have them!
Have a nice day and happy postcrossing!
Love and hugs,
