Irip(or Irina) is a member in Russia . She has been a member for over 5 years (1,940 days).
My name is Irina. I'm a professional translator and international communications manager. A wife and mother of a 13 y.o. boy. We live in Voronezh, a capital city of a so-called Black Soil Region of Russia (about 500 km to the south from Moscow).
Here is some more info about me and my preferences:
I'm addicted to the road. Thanks to my dearest hubby (who is an excellent driver) we already made four big roadtrips across Western Europe and a lot other in Russia. So cards with touristic attractions of your country are very waited.
I absolutely adore red poppies! Look at my avatar! This photo was taken in France near Paris, in June 2016.
A poppy stamp on your card will make me so happy!
For other flowers I also like blooming cacti, lupines, and lavender.
I always enjoy being near water, be it sea beach or just a rainy day. If your city is at some river I will be happy to see it on your card. I especially love the view of river curves.
My all-time favorites are Vivien Leigh, Marilyn Monroe, Michèle Mercier, Lady Di, Kate Middleton, Monica Belucci, Aydan Sener, Grace Kelly, Ornella Muti, Natalia Oreiro, Wentworth Miller, Kurt Cobain, David Beckham, Leonardo DiCaprio.
From recently I got mad about fruit and vegetable manufacturer stickers! Sounds weird but so I am ha-ha. Guess what's the first thing I look for in the grocery? New stickers!
Please stick some to your card if you can ;)
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

Please do not use envelopes, let your card travel freely. I will also appreciate nice stamps.
PLEASE NOTE that my Favourites wall is not my wish-list but a crazy mix of received cards and cards which I like in other accounts. For you it might be a source of ideas on what to send, thanks.
