My name is Liisa. I'm married and have two adult kids, age 25 and 21. Our first-born studies biology in the Uni of Oulu and our youngest child drives a cable ferry.
When I was younger my hobbies were playing field hockey (goalkeeper), scouting and collecting stamps from all over the world, so I still enjoy receiving nice stamps.
WANTED stamp themes are:
EUROPA(CEPT)-stamps (2020 Europa "Ancient postal routes" and older ones too), Olympics, Field-hockey, Football (soccer), Lunar New Year and Christmas.
CARD CHALLENGE for 2020 is to send me a card with a postal theme (postboxes, mail carriers etc). It would also be nice if you can use the new EUROPA 2020 "Ancient postal routes" stamp. Thank you.
