Happy to meet you on this site. I am retired, female and live in Basel, Switzerland. I have a dog and live by myself. I am an introvert person and live a quiet life.
I enjoy to get picture postcards, I like the touristic type and that is also the kind, that I will send. I do not want to order any postcards but my only wish is that they are from your place or country. Please, no holiday cards from outside your country.
Please do not send ad-cards, free cards, offensive or erotic cards or publicity for any products. No violence or porn please.
I do not care for cards with animals, although I like animals!
I hope you write something on the card, so I can get a glimpse of who you are. I am really interested to learn and to improve my knowledge about people of foreign countries.
My hobbies are reading, writing, computer, languages, cooking, baking, gardening, growing plants in pots from branches that have been pruned (my home plants) knitting, my dog - I love to exchange views about anything. I am interested in history and life of people abroad. I speak and write German, French, English, Italian and some Russian and recently I did start to learn Spanish. I will continue for some given time.
I would love to travel - but since this is not possible at the time, I find Postcrossing a very lovely way of connecting to the world. I enjoy very much to find your card in my letterbox - in fact, I am really looking forward to it. :-)
NB. I came across this statement and I feel exactly the same. That is why I share this with you:
One postcrosser wrote this and I think it is so true:
"It´s not about receiving and collecting cards - it´s about sharing a part of yourself with the world. Influencing people and leaving your mark in a place you may not ever get to visit. It´s about connecting. It´s putting a smile on a face you never get to meet.
It makes my day better."
Thank you for the time you take writing my card!
