About Matthias...

Слава Україні !
Putin´s criminal war aiming to annihilate democracy and freedom may kill and destroy, but will not defeat Ukraine !
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. We have five Siberian Huskies. I live in a town south of Berlin near the new BER airport. I lived in different phases of German history in former West Germany, West Berlin, re-united Berlin and now in former East Germany.
I like foreign languages, cycling, art, reading and watching crime thrillers and series, sudoku, sauna, people who are honest, reliable and emphatic, doing things all alone, camping, summer and sun, ice cold beer, schnitzel, swimming in lakes, motorbiking, esp. in Croatia (Jadranska Magistrale !), VfL Wolfsburg (soccer) , Autobahn without speed limit. Rock music has always accompanied my life and I' m grateful that eg Deep Purple, The Stones and Udo Lindenberg are still there. I also like Billy Talent, Metallica and Rammstein.

My wishes for cards are :
- "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 (see above)
Please keep all other cards, especially b/w and painted ones, for someone who likes them.
Beautiful stamps on the card are appreciated, but please don´t send me additional stamps. I´m no stamp collector.
There is no need to scan the card, I have a scanner.

NO GO: Covid-19 theme, military, real animals dressed in any kind, Keep Calm cards

If there is no description on the card or if it is only e. g. in Chinese 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).

If you want to, you may answer one or some of these questions:
Imagine there were no restrictions (time/money/job/family/health...), which would be the thing you´d do (or buy) spontaneously ?
Is there something you regret (not) having done ?
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 ?
