My collection of received postcards and stamps by country: https://www.flickr.com/photos/160434166@N06/albums
Hi! My name is Elena.
I live in Moscow with my husband and two-year old daughter. I grew up in a small village in Siberia and I have always loved sending and receiving postcards. I remember how I used to go to the nearest post office with my mom before New Year or some other holiday. We would choose and buy the most beautiful postcards and send them to our relatives. These were the happiest moments for me!
I speak English, German and Korean. I am a real book-warm. I like travelling. I have been to 25 countries so far. Also I am fond of mountain skiing, snowboarding, badminton and camping.
I'd appreciate postcards with:
* fruit, vegetables, berries, nuts and spices (photo cards)
* birds, especially parrots (photo)
* botanical illustrations
* illustrations of Ekaterina Babok
* grape and wine
* lavender, lilac, lupine, wisteria, hydrangea, aquilegia, magnolia, sunflower (photo)
* domestic and wild animals and their babies (photo)
* food and drinks (without recipe, please)
* multiples (Nouvelles Images, LouPaper and the like)
* symbols of your country - National flags, flowers, birds, picturesque views, national costumes, instruments etc.
* characters of Czech, Polish and German cartoons and animated films of 70-80s.(Bolek i Lolek; Reksio; Krtek; Ali und Archibald etc)
* Pettson and Findus
* Inge Löök grannies
* the Olympic games
* maps, subways
* royal families
* autumn foliage
* volcanos, canions and peaks
* sea cruise ships
* aircrafts and airports
* flowers from Cut Flower Garden set https://www.amazon.com/Floret-Farms-Flower-Garden-Postcards/dp/1452172943
A nice stamp would be highly appreciated. I always choose commemorative stamps when sending my postcards. I prefer cards (mostly photo, not illustrations) written, stamped and w/o an envelope.
If you still have no idea what to send to me, choose any postcard that you like, rather than something to get rid of. I am not a great admirer of self-made things unless they are really well-done.
And don't forget to put a piece of your unique personality into your writings. Write a few words on any topic.
If you speak Korean, German or Spanish, don't hesitate to write me using your language. If you study Russian and want to practice it, write in Russian, that would be great! By the way, you can write me something in your own language with translation!
My favourites are the cards I would like to receive someday.
I always write my address (like many other Russian postcrossers, I guess). This does not mean asking for a "thank you card", it is just for the post, in case something is wrong.
Thanks for reading!
