If you are here, I suppose you're going to send me a postcard. You can send a postcard to me, or to my son, or to my beloved man. If you need some hints what to send, here is some information about us.
My name is Julia. I was born in Baku, Azerbaijan, but now I live in Rostov-on-Don.
I am a teacher (Russian language and literature) and pianist, interested in travelling, reading books, riding bicycle, photographing, listening to rock and classical music. Now I work as a graphic designer in a printing house.
I study Polish. If you know this language, please, write me in it :)
The main thing in postcrossing for me is the fact that postcards come from other countries, and somewhere someone took the time to send me a postcard. It inspires me. That's why I am happy about any card I receive.
My son is 13 years old and sometimes he sends postcards instead of me. He appreciates all postcards, especially if you write on it something like "Hello" or "Best wishes" or anything you want - in your native language with translation. His name is Emil.
My husband is a historian, he is a teacher at the university. He permanently improves his skills and knowledge. I admire him. I would be very happy if I receive a postcard for him. It could be a postcard with historical figure or event - anything that has to do with the history of your country. And he also is fond of Sherlock Holmes series with Cumberbatch and Game of Thrones series. His name is Alex.
If you need some more inspiration, our interests are (among other things):
- Pre-raphaelites paintings (John Millais and others);
- Moomintrolls! and their friends;
- owls - cartoon or real;
- dragonflies - cartoon or real;
- kerosene lamps!
- photo, art, paintings, drawings of girls or women with curly hear;
- couple in love;
- cartoon pictures (for Emil)
Tell me something about you, your thoughts, small miracles of your life, what is the weather like, etc. Or you can share which book impressed you, or what you like or hate in your daily life or what you are dreaming of; or just write interesting facts about what is on the card or why you choose it to send me.
You can also write me what you know about Russia - may be some stereotypes; or what you liked in it (if you've been there).
Thanks a lot for your effort.
Birthday cards in August (Julia), September (Emil) and December (Alex) and Christmas/New-Year cards in December are welcome.
