Hello dear Postcrosser,
we are Astrid (48) & Lucy (19) from Dresden / Germany. Our common hobbies are traveling and collecting postcards from all over the world.
Also we like listening to "Discworld"-books of Terry Pratchett on audio in the evening. We planed to hike every weekend in nature next to Dresden - and when we can make it, we enjoy it very much.
About Lucy: I´m a big fan of Bollywood (movies and music), Harry Potter and Twilight. In my spare time I collect stamps, do couple-dance, cooking or baking - and of course postcrossing. I also learnt Latin for 5 years, recently started learning Hindi.
Since I like quotes, I would be very happy if you could write your favourite one on the card;)
About Astrid: I like hiking, gardening, drawing, sketching, collecting stamps, stones, clams and archeological objects. I enjoy spending my spare time in nature. I love Gothic architecture. For some years I have been discovering a new hobby for me: taking part in postcrossing together with my daughter. Often we write together and read the answers.

But every card you like is welcome, too. But please don´t send ad-cards, thanks.
Also we are grateful if you stick on some beautiful stamps, but of course we won´t cut your card: we collect your card as full piece of art made of the picture, your text and the stamps.
PS: If you are from the US, please send a card from a National Park of your region, especially we like the painted ones! Thank you:)
