Receive postcards

About Alan...

I live in London, Ontario, Canada, and I am married with three children (all boys) - 4 years, 2 years and 1 year old.

I enjoy traveling, photography and computers. We have three cats and two dogs in the house, so it's a zoo here sometimes!

Another hobby I like to do is currency tracking. Check out the following web sites:

Euro: www.eurobilltracker.com
U.S. dollar: www.wheresgeorge.com
Canadian dollar: www.whereswilly.com
Australian dollar: www.moneytracker.com.au

I will register ALL postcards I receive and will be happy with whatever you send me, but if you're looking for some ideas:

- single-view cards are preferred (but not necessary) of the town/city/area/country that you live in.
- something historical.
- beautiful scenery (especially aerial photographs).
- water (ocean, lakes, rivers, streams, waterfalls).
- lighthouses.
- hot air balloons.
- castles/cathedrals/churches.
- farming & farms.
- bridges.
- an animal unique to your country/region (or at least one that is not found in Canada).

If it's not too much trouble, please take a look at my received cards to avoid sending duplicates. You can also see cards I have received through private swaps here: http://flic.kr/s/aHsjyDJyQN

Cards I have available for trade (to send as private swaps) can be seen here: http://flic.kr/s/aHsjyWNGog

New request: If you are from the U.S.A. or Canada, I would really like single-view photo cards with the state or province name only (but no map cards). So cards like this:
- www.postcrossing.com/postcards/US-1363465
- www.postcrossing.com/postcards/US-745436
- www.postcrossing.com/postcards/US-549000

But *not* cards like this:
- www.postcrossing.com/postcards/US-1595124 (state/province name only please)
- www.postcrossing.com/postcards/US-1597329 (single-view please)
- www.postcrossing.com/postcards/US-1596079 (no map cards please)

It doesn't really matter what the picture is, but single-view is preferred. States/provinces I already have (I'm just starting this):
- Minnesota
- New Jersey
- New York
- Ontario (of course)
- Prince Edward Island
- Texas
- Washington, D.C. (although a card from this area that just says "District of Columbia" on it would be awesome!)

Don't worry if you don't have one like that - I won't be disappointed. :)

Have a great day!
