About Kornelia...

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, paper bags 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
- buildings
- transports (bikes, cars, trains, trams, planes, streets)
- politics (yes, even weird cards are welcome)
- history
- 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 whatever 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.
Now to the monthly mottos:
January: Anything that is related to the number 23 or 2023 or just the new year.
February: Carnival, satirical literature and art
March: The letter K, the moon, birthday cards
April: Famous gardens or parks, hares and rabbits, gardening
May: Books, some advice where I should go on holidays this year
June: Mysterious places, legends
July: Museums, birthplaces of famous people / writers
August: The seaside, lighthouses, fish, beaches and so on
September: Cats
October: World Heritage Sites, abandoned places, lost places
November: Anything about death, graves, graveyards
December: History of your country, Hanuka, Christmas / New Year

Expired postcards:

Yes, there are some, it is a pity, but you never know, some cards still arrived after several months.

If your card is not registered after a while, please contact me.
