Hi, I'm Laura, 44 years old, married and mother of 2 children, aged 8 and 11. I live in the historical city of Leiden, where I work at Leiden University's Faculty of Archaeology. (Not as an archaeologist, but in education organisation).
Like many others, I love technological progress but also miss the 'old-fashioned' postcards, letters, and handwriting.
As I also love travelling and seeing how other people in the world live their lives, I think Postcrossing is perfect, combining these two interests. Also, it's nice to find other things in my mailbox besides bills and junk :-)
I love travel, reading, good food, cooking, watching movies and tv series, and drawing fan art (http://laulau75.deviantart.com/)
I would really enjoy receiving postcards showing the place you live in and its surroundings, the places you love most, and the little gems most people wouldn't know about.
Any card is a gift. But if you are looking for inspiration:
- Cards showing your city and surroundings
- Cards showing your national/your favorite food/recipes
- Cards with your national/religious holidays
- Science fiction, horror and fantasy movies/tv series
- Star Wars
- Star Trek
- National parks
(But please no home-made or free/ad cards, save them for those who truly enjoy them).
My birthday is on December 1st, birthday cards are very welcome!
Have a great day, and happy Postcrossing!
