About Anja...

Hello postcrossers,

I am so glad to be part of this wonderful project, which connects people, countries and continents with a little piece of paper and some words.
Even in these crazy times it's a treasure to build up a net of kindness, courage, tolerance and peace.

I'm born in Berlin and still living here. Maybe not really adventurous, but this city offers nearly everything.

My volunteer activities at the German Red Cross children's hospital visiting service and our Protestant church are starting again after a longer break due to the pandemic.
I've a part time job at hospital, organizing classes for pregnant women, parents with children with special needs and keeping our "parents hotel" running. I really like my work.

I have been happily married for so many years, I am proud mum of four grown-up children and so lucky to be grandmother of two wonderful granddaughters.

I like the nature - to calm down, especially forests - sometimes so mysteriously , the coast - expanding horizon, but also the quiet green places in the city like parks, gardens or traditional cemeteries. In the autumn I like watching migratory birds.

I like travelling, visiting european capitals is great, but I also like hiking in the beautiful nature in Germany.

I love books and read a lot. I also love the atmosphere of libraries and book stores.
Cinema, theatre, museums are on my to do list, but also gardening behind the house.
I am still learning how to live more sustainable, reduce waste, grow and preserve vegetables and fruits... I like to hear more about your experiences.

Doing at lot of creative things with different materials, knitting, cross stich, sewing, patch work, crafting with paper or wood...

I am happy with every postcard, you choose for me. I trust in you finding the right one for me.
I'm always thankful reading something about you, the place you are living, your job, your hobbies, your dreams...

Please notice, I really received my favorite postcards, it's not a wish.

After more than 2800 cards I would like to thank all Postcrossers from the bottom of my heart.

Sometimes it was criticized that I don't have a wish list.

I have to admit, that I appreciate the text side of the card the most.

I collect all the cards and prefer the 10x15 cm format.
I am not a big fan of typical tourist postcards.

I am most happy about cards with the following motifs:

Books, libraries, reading people ...
Handwriting, alphabets, calligraphy (if you like, you can write to me in Sütterlin), ink, fountain pens, pens ...
Tea, coffee, bread, cake, spices, and also recipes ...
Needlework, wool, fabrics, cross stitch, crochet, knitting, lace ...
Garden themes, flowers, trees, seeds, fruits, birds, insects ...
Roads and paths, that lead into the distance and tempt you to dream...
Happy, colorful cards, green, yellow, red ...
black humor, really good jokes, thoughtful quotes...
details in everyday situations, at home, in the streets...
