I have been inactive for several months, and that's the reason for big difference between sent and received cards. Now I am active again, and as always, I register each card at the same day I receive it.
My previous user name was Voitatti, but I changed it into my real name.
So, my first name is Jussi - Finnish for Johannes, Hans, John, Jean, Juan, Joan, Giovanni, João, János, Jens, Johan, Jan, Jaan, Janez, Jānis, Honza, Seán, Ian, Ion, Ivan, Иван, Jovan. My family consists of two young men (less than 60 years old). We are living in Helsinki. Finland finally legalized the same-sex marriages on March 1st 2017, and we got married next day :-)
I like visiting historical sites, museums and art galleries. ❤ Mushroom hunting is my oldest hobby, already since the mid 1970s. ❤ I enjoy having a good wine, beer and tea. ❤ I love travelling and I try to make 2 - 3 trips abroad every year. I would travel much more, if I had more time and money... ❤
I am not picky about the cards - I really appreciate all cards I receive. Please don't worry about duplicates, and do NOT spend time looking through my received postcards. It is YOU who makes the card special. Each card is different in its own way. It is YOU who chooses the card, not me. I have nothing against advertising or self-made cards, either.
I don't have any demands, but in case it makes your life easier when choosing the card, there are some of my favourite topics:
• Traditional view cards (towns, architecture, landscapes)
• Wildlife, zoos, aquariums
• Art (I enjoy all kinds of visual arts, but modern and contemporary are my favourites.)
• Black & white photography
• Handsome men (risque cards are OK)Maps
• Royal families & other celebrities
• Food & beverage
• Cartoons (In the 1960s & 1970s, I adored Micky Mouse, Bugs Bunny, Flintstones, Asterix, Tintin, Lucky Luke, Superman, Batman, Spider-Man and other retro cartoon characters)
Feel free to write in your own language, if it happens to be German, Russian, Finnish or Swedish.
ABOUT DIRECT SWAPS:
Currently I have a few good long term penpals and I love to continue changing cards with them. For now, I can’t have new swapping friends, because I don't have time for more. There's one big exception: I am always looking for gay men for long time card swapping friends.
