About Matthias...

Слава Україні ! Peace for Ukraine - out with invaders ! Long live freedom and democracy in Ukraine and the whole world !
I' m happy to be part of this community. Since my childhood I have been collecting postcards - now I have, also thanks to Postcrossing, more than 24,000 items. I´m clearly rather a collector than a hunter ! What a great idea to share this with other people ! Receiving cards from somewhere in the world makes me happy as well as selecting a postcard other Postcrossers like, putting some special stamps on it and telling you a bit about my life and environment.
I am a retired chemist, living alone with my Siberian Huskies Cuno and Easy. Other interests: foreign languages, cycling, art, (real) crime thrillers and series (Tatort fan !!), sudoku, sauna, doing things all alone, steam trains, camping, summer and sun, motorbiking in Croatia (can´t wait going there again in 2024), ice cold beer, schnitzel, smoking occasionally, swimming in lakes, Autobahn without speed limit.
I´m a rock fan since my youth. Favorites: Deep Purple, Led Zeppelin, Metallica, Rolling Stones, Billy Talent, Udo Lindenberg and others.
Willy Brandt is my political idol.

If you look at my favorites, you get an idea of which cards I like :
- "touristic" cards - real photos of cities and landscapes, colored, mapcards, lighthouses, sports stadium, architecture, UNESCO WHS, country typical things (flags, coats of arms, traffic signs, currency, food), etc. - multiview - yes, please !
- (steam) trains, transportation
- Siberian Husky
- rock stars and bands
I´m not a big fan of PC meetup and World Postcard Day cards.
Absolute NO GO: real animals dressed/with hats/glasses
Please no : painted cards, black+white, vintage cards and reproductions, letters / extra stamps / several cards in envelopes. The idea of Postcrossing is sending postcards.

The minimum I expect from you is to write something like "Hello" and YOUR name so that I can adress you.

If you like to write some more, you may write :
- Which are the top 3 of your bucket list ?
- If you lived in another country: which country would it be and which would be the three things from your country you would miss the most ?
- If you could use a time machine, into which year/time period would you like to travel ? Which age (in the past or in the future) would you like to have yourself (example: "I´d like to be 18 again..." )
- What is better: to be content on most days or to be happy on some days ?

If you speak French, Russian or Spanish I´d be glad if you wrote me in your language (in Russian it is easier to read for me in capital letters).
