About Matthias...

Слава Україні ! Peace for Ukraine ! Out with invaders !
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 retired chemist. I spend a lot of time with our four Siberian Huskies. Other interests: foreign languages, cycling, art, reading and watching crime thrillers and series, sudoku, sauna, doing things all alone, steam trains, camping, summer and sun, motorbiking in Croatia, ice cold beer, schnitzel, smoking occasionally, swimming in lakes, VfL Wolfsburg (soccer), statistics, Autobahn without speed limit. Rock music has always accompanied my life. My favorite artists are Deep Purple, Udo Lindenberg, Billy Talent, Led Zeppelin, Metallica, Rolling Stones, The Doors, Linkin Park and Red Hot Chili Peppers, but I also like 70s stuff of Suzi Quatro, The Sweet and Slade.

If you look at my favorites, you get an idea of which cards I like :
- "touristic" cards - real photos of cities and landscapes, colored, standard size, map cards, lighthouses, sports stadium, architecture, UNESCO WHS, country typical things (flags, coats of arms, traffic signs, currency, food), etc.
- (steam) trains, transportation
- Siberian Husky
- rock stars and bands (please no more b/w Rolling Stones)
Please keep all other cards, especially b/w and painted ones, for someone who likes them. I´m also not a big fan of PC meetup and World Postcard Day cards.

Beautiful stamps on the card are appreciated, but please don´t send me additional stamps. I´m no stamp collector.
NO GO: Covid-19 theme, military, real animals dressed in any kind, Keep Calm cards
Please write your NAME legibly so that I can adress you.
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).

If you want to, you may answer one or some of these questions:
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 ?
