Hello, my name is Karin Kornelia, I live in Germany in the Lower Rhine region and I work as a teacher for German and foreign languages, mostly French.
Of course I like travelling, especially to France, but in general every place in the world is worth visiting. Because of the nice postcards I have got so far I have already realized some small trips.
I love the moment when I open my letterbox and find a personal letter or postcard. I like the pictures, the paper and the stamps.
Actually I am a paperjunkie. I like most things made of paper: books, boxes, bags, stamps, photos, letters, cards, newspapers, scrapbooks, tickets and so on.
It would be interesting to get some information about the place where you live, so touristic cards are very welcome. My favourite postcards are about
- beautiful / interesting / strange places
- literature and alphabets
- culture and art
- transports (bikes, cars, trains, trams, planes, streets)
- politics (yes, even weird cards are welcome)
- strange cards
- interesting ads
- mail art and selfmade cards.
Maybe these are some helpful ideas, but I love nearly every card I get, so please send me what ever you like. It would also be nice to tell me something about you, your hobbies and your lives.
Some postcrossers have got mottos for each month, that is a nice idea. So, if you have got a suitable card, you might like to follow a motto:
May: Working people, workers' movement (Because of May 1st, the International Workers' Day)
June: Anything that touches the idea of two identical or similar things or persons, twins, doubles, pairs etc. (Because I have a sister and a brother who are twins, and their birthday is in June)
July: Postcards from your summer holidays
August: Postcards about travelling, like places, people, experiences and so on. Unfortunately, my holidays are over now
September: Museums (Have you visited a museum during your holidays? Is there an interesting museum in your town? Do you know any beautiful or strange museum?)
Yes, there are some, it is a pity, but you never know, some cards still arrived after several months.
