I am an avid gardener, as in beans and greens, not flowers, enjoy reading science-fiction and fantasy books and like to listen to different kinds of music. Mostly hard-rock and blues, but I like to go to the opera as well. I came to Postcrossing because of my penchant for fountain-pens, stationery and handwriting.
Travelling to Scotland is my favourite, but I have come as far as New Zealand. Postcrossing is a very nice way of getting a glimpse into the life of people in countries one will probably never be able to visit.
While not being religious, I'm interested in the philosophy of Theravada Buddhism. I believe in lifelong learning and the sharing of knowledge. It’s important to always see things in new and different ways.
My favourite animals are bats, penguins and cool cats.
Cards that show the way of life in the country, land, city you live in are of special interest to me, but I'll be equally thankful for every other card.
In fact, I enjoy cards that represent the personality of the sender very much. If you feel cheeky, send me a card that represents something that is deemed to be German in your country.
For me, Postcrossing is a wonderful way to meet different people. It taught me that, while there are so many individual people out there, a lot of them have basic things like decency, friendliness and an interest in the lives of others in common. So far, I especially enjoyed the respectful conversations I had with people whose opinions and ways of life are the opposite of mine. It’s so easy to forget that differences can enrich our lives instead of making them more complicated.
Please write something about you and your life on the card, e.g.:
• What was the last thing you learned because you wanted to?
• What is your favourite book?
• What did you have for dinner last night?
• What did you do right before you wrote this card?
• What do you love about your country?
Or, if you are good at it, send me a Haiku you wrote for me.
Love and peace,
