Вітаю Вас!!! My name is Ivanka. Mi nombre es Ivanka.
I live in Kyiv, Ukraine (not Kiev). Proud to be a Ukrainian.Postcards are helping me improve my English and now Deutsch, especially if they are written in simple short sentences with clear handwriting.
Almost all postcards are welcome, especially those which help me visualize your country (urban sketching is fabulous as well as artsy). I also adore funny, bizzare and weird postcards, vintage (except for Soviet), cards with municipal councils, local legislatures and townhalls. A Keep Calm, Finnish nightmares, the New Yorker magazine covers and postcards printed on a recycled paper would certainly make my day. If you are from our neighbor Belarus, please DO write me in your native tongue without any translation as I love this language so much. Буду рады атрымаць вашыя паштоўкi па-беларуску. Do polskich postcrosserów: byłoby wspaniale otrzymywać wasze pocztówki w języku polskim! Wicinanky postcards are great. "Finnish Nightmares" from Finland are stand-outs.
My observations about my correspondence with Russian postcrossers in 2014-2017 have been further removed following the comments from the community manager Ana Campos - which I respect . The only thing which I keep is drawing attention of Russian postcrossers to the list of languages which I use for Postcrossing.
Also sorry, but I would rather not prefer: multiviews cards; anime/manga;
-ad/free cards; hand-made card;-flowers;Soviet cards; self-printed photos; cards about nothing; no cats, kittens, dogs and puppies please as well postcards for kids under 5 y.o.
If you happen to enclose your postcard into an envelope, please feel free to put inside any routine memorabilia which will tell me a speck about your homeland e.g. a movie ticket or a used public transport monthly pass
Also, I would appreciate if you mention on your postcard your favorite family-friendly movie which I will try to find. Below I will keep rotating the 5 most recent movies I & my sis Stephie have enjoyed following your recommendations:
1. Demain tout commence
2. Hidden Figures (so, math is a great science after all)
3. The Fault in Our Stars
4. The Fencer (Klaus Härö; Miekkailija)
My favourite writers are Christine Noestlinger and Roald Dahl. The list of favourite TV series includes Modern Family, Scorpions, Grey's Anatomy and Librarians.
I also keep an inventory of the unusual names of the streets and towns I send my postcards to. So far the list is crowned with (1) Easy Acres Drive in Oregon, (2) Crooked Stick Drive in Kokomo, Indiana, USA, (3) Za Mlynem in Vlkos, Czechia, (4) Honeydew in Johannesburg, (5) Partridge Trail in SC, (6) Paseo de Ruiseñores in Zaragoza, (7) King of Prussia in Philadelphia, (8) Misty Court in FL, (9) Impasse de Lilas in Luxeeuil in France and (10) Bent Oak Drive in North Carolina. King of Prussia town in PA (USA) - how does it sound, ah?
Sometimes my Daddy helps me in posting thank you notes for the postcards recei
