About Claire...

Please dear Postcrossers : write the ID number at 2 different places of the card and write your name or postcrossing name on the card. Thank you

5427 sent, 5419 received 3053 popular, 13633 postcards in my collection

I'm Claire.
My lovely husband is Eric and we have 4 children : 1 son and 3 daughters , from 28 to 21. Two of them are living with us, but on their own floor and we share the kitchen and the living ;-) . My best moments are when we are all together with my children and their beloved.
I'm freshly retired (june30th 2020) after 35 years teaching french and 3 years as coordinator in the same school.
We live in Brussels (but before I was living in Liège and Namur)
We love travelling for short or long journeys. I have visited : France, Luxemburg, Germany, Netherlands, United Kingdom Ireland, Switzerland, Austria, Liechtenstein, Spain (including Canary Islands and Ibiza), Portugal (including Madera and Azores), Greece (including Creta, Santorini, Rhodos), Italy, Malta, Croatia, Slovenia, Hungary, Norway, Finland, Czech republic, Marocco and USA (only New York city and state at this moment).
I collect postcards since a long time.
I discover Postcrossing six years ago and I like it very much. It takes the most part of my free time. I love meeting new friends with Postcrossing meet-ups (till now, I have participate to 20 meet-up or mini-meet-up in Belgium, France and Luxembourg).

If you want to make me happy, please send me a card from your own country :
- typical houses of your country
* for austrian postcrossers : I would like to receive those painted houses from Tirol (children memories about those houses)
- special meals or food from your country
- vintage posters (travel, food…)
- children in traditionnal costumes (for a friend)
- writing, school
Or choose something special from your country.
All nice cards are welcome.

Please, have a look on my albums on Facebook to avoid doubles

I don't like multiviews cards (my eyes are not so good to see small pictures), folded cards, animals and homemade. Keep them for people who love them.

And, what do you think about Belgium ? Tell me about in 3 words ! And write me 3 words to describe your country too ;-)

If it's possible for you, send your card in an envelope because I give the stamps to friends (even if I know that 's not in Postcrossing rules, sorry)
I'll be happy to read you soon.

Oh something else : choosing a card, writing it, sending it take time and money. Please, don't forget to register the card you'll receive. It's a kind of respect for those who give you a part of them when sending you a card.

Happy Postcrossing !
