About Maria...


Hello World! Hello everyone!

I'm so grateful to all who take into account my preferences and "lost" some time reading my profile... ❤
Please take a look at my favourites and at my received cards from your country so you will be sure you are not sending me a duplicate. I try to choose postcards that fit to your profile or your wish-list, if possible of course. I hope you'll try that for me too.

My name’s Maria and I live near Lisbon.
I'm a bookworm and I carry a book all year. One of my pleasures is walking along the beach because I’m a sea enthusiast. I love reading on a café with outdoor seating, especially by the sea... Happiness? A cup of coffee and a good book.

The main idea of Postcrossing is to connect the world, but, for me, share happiness is the really spirit of this community.
I always make an effort to please the members to whom I have to write, sometimes it's a hard task, but I try, because my motto in Postcrossing is to "make someone happy". You know this old song by Jimmy Durante? I have fallen in love with this song (all thanks to the Coca Cola commercial). Let's make the world happy and you will be happy too...

I will be very happy to receive postcards with:

- UNESCO WORLD HERITAGE SITES
http://whc.unesco.org/en/list/
- City views, street cafes, landscapes, landmarks
- Aerial views
- Postallove's "Greetings from" cards (I already have Austria, Estonia, Germany, Poland, China, Japan and Finland)
- Pinup Hilda by Duane Bryers
- Christmas markets
- Amazing castles, palaces and buildings
- Inge Look's cards-Old Ladies (I have 10,15, 21, 33, 34 and 38)
- Nouvelles Images (like this https://www.postcrossing.com/postcards/BE-456943)
- Urban sketching
- World War II related
- Winter Towns

Please...
If you are from China send me a card with The Great Wall

Thank you so much!
