My mom started a postcard collection for me when I was only a few months old - that was in 1978. My avatar is a picture of me organizing my collection. :)
Besides collecting postcards, I love photography, reading, hiking and travelling.
I am trying to get a postcard from every country so I am open to private/direct swaps (especially if I don't have that country in my collection). :)
I appreciate all received postcards but I prefer to receive postcards the way I feel they are meant to be: written, stamped and mailed as-is (not in an envelope)
If you need ideas on what to send, you can check the cards I have marked as favourites - these are all cards I have received. (http://www.postcrossing.com/user/Melodramababs/gallery/favourites)
I am ok with ad cards (as long as there's room to write something on the back. And I would prefer if the ad card was still in relation to something in your area). :)
