About Irina...

Hello World!

My name is Irina and I'm in my middle 40s. I live in Voronezh, the capital city of the Black Soil Region of Russia (Chernozemie), and work as a translator of English and French (also now learn Italian).

Here is some more info about me:

I'm addicted to the road. Thanks to my dearest hubby (who is an excellent driver) we made a number of road trips across Russia and Europe, and hopefully more will follow.

I used to work in the space industry, this was a great and joyful experience. Space/astronomy-related cards are welcome.

My all-time favorites are Marilyn Monroe, Michèle Mercier, Monica Belucci, Aydan Sener, Grace Kelly, Ornella Muti, Natalia Oreiro, Kurt Cobain, Freddie Mercury, Tom Hanks, Russell Crowe, Miloš Biković, Jude Law, David Beckham, Cristiano Ronaldo, Antoine Griezmann, Elon Musk.

I absolutely adore red poppies! For other flowers I also like cacti, lupines and lavender.

Caution! Please NO MONKEYS. I'm deadly scared of them.

So here are hints for you to choose a card (thank you for reading):

- poppies, lavender, cacti, lupines, also exotic flowers
- pink blossom trees: magnolia, cherry/sakura, almond

If you like you may check it for more ideas.

Please do not use envelopes, let your card travel freely. Nice stamps are very appreciated.

I'm a big fan of fruit and veg produce stickers and always look up for unusual ones in the grocery. Could you please stick some local produce sticker to your card?
Note: if you don't know what 'produce sticker' means pls google it ;) don't use stickers from aliexpress
