About Alvean...


What do I have to say? Hmm, a lot, so I don't know where to start.

Sometimes Betty signs the card with me. She is my aunt who doesn't use the internet but is interested in the postcrossing hobby.

If you got a card from me, feel free to scan and replace the photo of the card. I don't have a scanner, so I use my phone if an online copy of the postcard image isn't available.

Here is a reminder from Postcrossing that I like very much:
This is a periodic reminder that Postcrossing is about connecting, not collecting. It’s about embracing serendipity! Feel free to use profiles as inspiration, but please know that you can send any postcard you’d like or have available. Happy Postcrossing!

With the above in mind...
I like any and all types of postcards from anywhere in the world :) It would be great if you have vintage stuff, but anything I get is much appreciated. (One minor request, if sending erotic cards, please put in an envelope.)
I don't mind getting ad cards.
If you'd like to write something different and get it off your chest, feel free to do that with me. Rants? Random thoughts? Complaints? Use me as your sounding board. If it makes it easier for you, feel free to write in a language I do not know.
Rants, Secrets, Doodles, whatever you wish... and on cards that make you smile when you know they're for me.
I enjoy reading fanfiction. I am also a keen history buff. I enjoy travelling. Member of the ISL Signing community (Irish Sign Language), I live in Dublin, Ireland, and love my city. Cheers :)
Please do not send my address to third-party sites like TouchNote, please.

PS: Hello, postcrossers from countries that use non-Roman alphabets.
Cyrillic, Arabic, Greek, Devanagari, Hebrew, Chinese, Japanese, Korean, etc., It would be really helpful if you could add your address in your native language to your profile. This simple change can greatly increase the chances of your postcards reaching the right person. From my past experiences, I've noticed that a significant number of the cards I send to these countries, around 35%, don't get delivered if I write the address in English. This is often because the address is not written in the local language with a different alphabet. This can make it difficult for the postal service to deliver the cards accurately.
People have tried to contradict me, but the track record speaks for itself
