I'm a 20-year-old student from Berlin. I study sociolinguistics, history and Spanish at university.
In my freetime I enjoy crafting, reading and writing. My favourite genres are fantasy and science fiction. So if you find Harry Potter (I really love the books and the movies), Lord of the Rings/ The Hobbit or Hunger Games or similarly themed postcards or stamps, they will definitely make me smile for the rest of the day! I also really like TV-shows like Sherlock, Castle, The Mentalist, White Collar etc.
I definitely enjoy view/tourist postcards, especially if you're from a place considered rare on Postcrossing, so I can establish a visibly international collection. I would be really happy to receive Greetings from cards by Postallove (also self-made!) as well as the American state cards similar to this https://www.postcrossing.com/postcards/US-4332290 or https://www.postcrossing.com/postcards/US-3857957. "Icons of", "Flags of the World" and "World Travel" are great series, too.
I'd also adore postcards regarding Olympic Games, especially showing gymnastics and figure skating.
I love manatees, penguins, bats and sloths as well as dolphins and whales and other animals. If you want to, draw one of these on the back!
I do absolutely adore VW-Busses, especially the old T1s, too, as well as lighthouses and anything else related to the ocean!
However, I will be happy about every postcard I receive! And if you put beautiful stamps on them you can be sure they will be very much appreciated! Also, if you have some nice washi tape or stickers, I would be happy to see a decorated postcard! Or sketch something!
I do like self-made and handdrawn cards, but please make sure they don't fall apart or put them in an envelope if you worry that they're going to get damaged. But I truly enjoy postcards that are unique! And I love wax seals!
I’m also interested into photography, typography, lettering and digital as well as traditional art (especially watercolour). I love editing videos or photos. My music taste includes almost everything from metal and rock to pop from the seventies.
If your mother tongue is Spanish, Italian or Danish feel free to write in it, to help me practice. If you would want to write in Latin that would be awesome, too! I have a great passion for ancient Rome!
I am very interested in different cultures and languages so if you want to, write something in your mothertongue (with a translation), something about your daily life, your hobbies, your favourite song, book or movie or TV-show, something special about your country or whatever you want...
I feel like almost empty postcards are a bit sad to look at so please write more than just hello and your name! It would make me very happy to see postcards with lots of text!
Have a wonderful day!
I'm definitely interested in direct swaps. If you have similar interests as me or a postcard you think I'd like, message me!
