My name is Iris.
My favourite element is water:
Sitting at the Rhine, a big river nearby, and watching ships is something I like to do. My travels brought me to the Atlantic & Pacific, North, Baltic, Black & Mediterranean Sea + Lake Balaton. My sports are swimming + aqua-jogging (and I'm a little bit proud about my header). Last but not least: my zodiak-sign is pisces.
secret passion - driving in a bumper car
-photographing. Best motive is my family with husband & 3 daughters (27, 23 + 20) and Robby, a 15 year old Border Collie from an animal shelter, but sadly he died in summer 2016. Another photo-motive: clothes-line. Wherever I travel I search for a clothes-line to take a photo. In my opinion clothes-line is a symbol for every-day-life all over the world.
-and reading, especially thriller. I am mostly interested in stories which describe situations of the people, because I want to learn a little bit more about their lives, country & history in these books. The best for me is: I. Rankin(GB). But also I like: I.Remes + L.Lehtolainen (FIN), C.Lackberg + H.Tursten + A.Dahl + J.Guillou(S), F.Vargas(F), Vázquez Montalbán(E), J.Nesbo + A.Holt(N), T.Parsons + V.McDermid(GB), E.George + P.Cornwell(USA), J.C. Wagner (D). I would like to know, who is your favourite author?
If you don't know what to write:
Tell me something about your nation: what ist typical for the people or your native country? What is the most interesting issue people talking about today?
Searching for a postcard-motive:
Send me something with water - the Ocean next to your land, a river, a lake, a sea horse, fog, rainy days or a water-drop. And I'm interested in UNESCO WHS postcards. Sometime a Tamara-de-Lempicka postcard. That's something I always like to find in my letterbox.
If your card to me seems to expire,
