Postcrossing is a great idea. It is a kind of travelling through cards.
I'm 44 now and live in a small town in central Germany. I teach German to refugees and foreigners who work or fell in love here and I really LOVE my job because I meet people from around the globe at work. And we learn from each other ... about languages, cultures, food etc.
I also love going to Postcrossing meetups. Besides many German meetups I went to international ones: 2017 Luxembourg and Oslo/Norway, 2018 Åland Isles and Tromsø/Norway, 2019 Danube Delta/Romania and Emirates+ Oman, 2022 again Romania and Spitzbergen/Svalbard.
Now to cards:
I love ALL cards but I especially love receiving cards showing:
PLEASE NO AD CARDS and NO CARDS CUT FROM BOXES.
- your city, town, landscapes, any sight or anything else (clothes, food, people, animals ...) which is tyical for your country.
- Meetup cards
- CATS, SQUIRRELS, TURTLES, SLOTHS, MEERCATS, SNAKES, BIRDS, FOXES, WOLVES
- Greetings from (GF), Flags of the World (FOTW), Happy Postcrossing (HPC), Maps of the World (MOTW), Word Cloud (WC), 150 years of postcard, Covid (Stay Home, Stay Safe), PWE, United in Diversity, CCUN....series, TITIANA and friends
- northern lights, vulcanos
- cards related to movies or tv series: for ex. Lord of the Rings, The Hobbit, Criminal Minds, The Simpsons ...
- Native people or people in national clothes
- flags, maps, flowers
- animals (esp. CATS :))

Or just surprise me with a card you like :-)!!!!!!!!!!

My other passion is travelling therefore I'm dreaming of a trip around the globe ;-)
