I am living in Hamburg - the biggest city in Germany behind the capital Berlin. But my heart beats for Cagayan de Oro, a city in the north of the island Mindanao/Philippines. (http://cagayandeoro.gov.ph/). I am visiting the Philippines since more then 20 years. And I enjoy always my life there. The Philippinos or "Pinoys" are so friendly people.
Mabuhay ang Pilipinas
I am already retired and can enjoy my life. I am a collector of the postal stationaries (envelopes and post cards with imprinted stamps) of the formerly USSR and the following new countries Russia, Belarus, Ukraine.
Beside this I am collecting the EDGAR-Cards (free advertisement cards here in Germany). I am trying to get all of the more then 27.000 different cards.. My collection up to the number 10.000 is already complete.
If its possible for you I like to recieve cards of
-Railways, trams (incl. stations)
-Airplanes and airports
-Coca Cola (Coke)
- maps of your country, region, city
-Cards from Irina Garmashova
But all other real cards are also welcome. Handmade-cards only if you are a good photographer and/or artist. I prefer postcards in the standart-size (14,7 x 10,5 centimeters).
I have a favor: When you send a tourist-card to me please send only cards from your own country/state/city.
Please take a look in my walls - avoid duplicates.
PLEASE: Dont send me anymore the reprint of the old advertisment-card from Coca-Cola with the Santa Claus. I recieved this card so many times.
Hello members from Russia: If its possible for you please send me cards with inprinted stamp "B". It doesnt matter what kind of card as long it is a "B"-Postcard
Hallo deutsche Mitglieder: Ihr könnt mir gern auch EDGAR-Karten (bitte nur Edgar-Karten über der Nummer 10.000) senden.
In my favourites are only cards that I hope to recieve (maybe one day).
