Hi! I'm Olga (Ольга in Rus/ Helga in svenska/ Oili in suomi/ 奥尔加 in Chinese/ オリガ in Japan / ออลกา in Thai)
Isn't it a miracle that a card is put in a postbox in one place and then after several days (weeks) it appears in my letterbox? Every time I receive a postcard I'm amazed that so many people've worked to deliver me this small piece of paper. Every card is a little gift and it makes me dance.
My hobbies: books (esp. children's), history of art & design, urban geography, F1, traveling, sign language.
Pour les francophones:
J'apprends le français donc j'aimerais recevoir des cartes postales écrites en français (si le français est votre langue maternelle).
Per gli italòfoni:
Imparo italiano così mi piace ricevere cartoline scritte in italiano (se italiano è la tua lingua madre).
Please, if your country's ID-numbers are of the AA-#### type or shorter, send me a typical tourist card from your country!
If you'd like to send me a special card have a look at my Favourites (my wish list) or choose from the long list below (or just surprise me with smth else :)

NO modern comics (but old comics are very welcome)
NO children's photo except wearing wooden shoes or riding bike
NO kitties/doggies/birds/flowers (I don't like these cuties)

But I really don't want someone worrying their postcard is not good enough. Postcrossing is for fun! I wish your postcard a good trip!
