About Matthias...


I' m happy to be part of this community. Since my childhood I have been collecting postcards. 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 chemist and retired. I like Huskies (we have six of these wonderful dogs), foreign languages, motorbiking, cycling, art, reading, crosswords and sudoku, sauna, people who are honest and reliable, doing things all alone, writing rather than talking, summer and sun, ice cold beer, everything with minced meat, schnitzel, pizza and pasta, swimming in lakes, VfL Wolfsburg (soccer; German Champion 2009, Cup Winner 2015), Autobahn without speed limit and rock music - Deep Purple, Stones, Led Zeppelin, Billy Talent, Rammstein, Udo Lindenberg, Pink (just attended a fantastic concert).

-"touristic" cards - colored, preferably multi view, standard size - not painted, no vintage, no b/w

- dogs: only Siberian Husky
- maxicard with the above topics
- Nouvelles Images

Please consult my received cards wall to avoid duplicates - I have many of Moscow, St. Petersburg, Prague, Kinderdijk, US states, Taipei 101, Mt. Fuji

painted cards, Christmas/Easter cards, black and white/vintage cards, reproductions of historic cards, animals, flowers, generic cards (= a place "somewhere"), handmade, people, children, items like bicycles, coffee or tea cups, books, cartoons, military/war related, famous people, TV series, movies, quotes

Please write your NAME on the card ! And if the description is only in Chinese, Korean or Japanese, please describe what´s on the card.
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).
Beautiful stamps on the card are appreciated.

I´m interested in how you spend your day, vacation etc. Maybe you want to tell me: what is your hobby/favorite music style/art style/artist/meal/sports team.
If you lived in another country: which would be the three things from your country you would miss the most ? Or: in which other country would you like to live and why ? My favorite countries would be FRANCE or CROATIA.
What makes you happy ? What was the happiest day in your life ?
What is the dearest memory of your childhood ?
