About GuyT...

BONJOUR ! HELLO ! ПРИВЕТ !

Je m'appelle Guy. As most Quebecers, I am a native French speaker. Vous pouvez donc m'écrire dans cette langue.

My name is Guy. Of course, English is also fine!

Меня зовут Ги. Я немного знаю русский язык. Пожалуйста, напишите мне на этом языке.

I am a retired biologist happily married to an agronomist for 33 years now. We have two fantastic grown-up sons who are engineers... nothing is perfect ;-) I am crazy about classical music and opera. I love travels, geography and other cultures.

I recently started collecting cards showing airlines, airplanes (civilian aviation prefered) and airports. Don't worry, other postcards make also my happiness : single or multi-view postcards showing landscape, people, fauna, flora, culture, architecture, train, map, flag, stamps, or city views. If you don't know what to send, have a look at my favorites that show postcards I don't have. Of course, the final choice is yours, but, please, keep for others 'generic' postcards (cute dog or cat), which could have been mailed from anywhere. Please, no hand-made, Zazzle, Touchnote, ad or self-printed card. I kindly remind you that a piece of thin cardboard glued to a sheet of paper is not a postcard.

Please...
MAIL YOUR POSTCARD FROM THE COUNTRY OF ORIGIN. For instance, don’t mail from China a postcard showing the Eiffel Tower. On the other hand, if you travel to a ‘rare country’, feel free to use the Travel mode.

Please...
NO ENVELOPE. HANDWRITE YOUR MESSAGE, THE DATE AND MY ADDRESS DIRECTLY ON THE POSTCARD (no printed text and address label). I am not really found of washi tape or decorative tape.

Please...
TAKE THE TIME TO WRITE SOMETHING either serious or funny, happy or sad, important or trivial. Both sides of the postcard are important to me.

MOST IMPORTANTLY, HAVE FUN.

And, if possible... Nice stamps are the icing on the cake !!!
