Hello from Yekaterinburg, the 4th largest city of Russia!
I am Julia, an English teacher and a tour guide.
My avatar is a card showing FIFA World Cup volunteers, I was one of them in summer of 2018 working at our new stadium.
I used to collect postcards when I was a child, when I found out about Postcrossing I got hooked. I love the idea of making people you will never meet smile.
Dear postcrossers, I use the cards in my lessons of English (describing, making stories, discussing quotations, etc), so don't send ad or handmade cards, please. It would be great if you wrote legibly (so that my students could understand all the words) about your interests, the most popular sights in your area, traditional dishes, customs, etc.
You will make my day if you send me one of the following:
People (especially kids, people dressed in national costumes and royal families) These cards are the best for my classes.

Or you can just send a card you would be happy to get. Any card will be cherished.
I may tick your card as a favourite one, but in a while I delete it because in the list of favourites I have the images of the postcards I would love to get.
I admire beautiful stamps. Can you please put a date on the card and write your name? I always leave a thank you note under the image of your card.
Juliayana means two names - Julia (me) and Yana (my daughter). She is also interested in Postcrossing. Her hobbies are reading (she is a real bookworm), writing poems, learning Chinese and collecting bookmarks. If you send a card concerning one of Yana's interests, it will make her happy.
Postcrossers from the USA, I'd like to gather a collection of state maps. If you have such cards, can you do direct swap with me? I have got Pennsylvania, Illinois, Kansas, Minnesota, Montana,Texas, California, Alaska. Through direct swap I have got New York, Iowa, New Jersey, West Virginia, Delaware, South Dakota, Arizona, Massachusetts, Maryland, Florida, Ohio, Oregon, Wisconsin.
