My name is Nataliya (Наталия). I was born and raised in Riga (capital of Latvia), lived in Lithuania (Šilutė), where my parents worked, but now I live in Moscow (capital of Russia) together with my husband Egor, 18 years old son Sandis and two cats Tom and Butyavka.
I enjoy reading books, especially dystopian novels. My favorite writers are Leo Tolstoy, Fyodor Dostoevsky, Yevgeny Zamyatin, Stanislaw Lem, Mikhail Bulgakov, Chuck Palahniuk, Haruki Murakami, Gabriel Garcia Marquez, Erich Maria Remarque, Anthony Burgess, George Orwell ...
I like to listen to "The Cure", "Nirvana", "The Clash", "Kraftwerk", "The Ramones", "The Smiths", "Blur", David Bowie, "My Chemical Romance", Mylene Farmer, "Brainstorm", "Imagine Dragons", "The Offspring" and I'll be glad to get a card with pictures of this musicians!
I love art. My favorite painters are Andrey Rublev, Hieronymus Bosch, Pieter Bruegel the Elder, Salvador Dali, Pablo Picasso, Wassily Kandinsky, Henri Matisse...
I also like traveling and learn something new about different countries, communicate with people, learn their way of life.
Instead of a postcard you can send me a photo of your view from the window: I wonder what is going on under the window of your house.
My husband Egor also likes to help me with postcrossing, and will be very happy to receive postcards with the railway and with industrial themes. He also loves cycling (Giro d'Italia, Le Tour de France, Vuelta a España,
classic cycling...), ski jumping (Vierschanzentournee), skiing, downhill.
My favorite postcards are:
• Fairy tales, mythology, science fiction
• interesting photos (I started photo classes),
• Something unusual, abstract, surrealism and cyberpunk
• Space theme
• Beautiful landscapes or interesting places from your country or city
• Cultural events
• Dedicated to historical events
• Traditional clothes
• Christmas or New Year's postcard during December
• Photos, drawings or caricature of famous people (leader of the country, sportsmen, musicians, writers, artists, movie stars).
• Your home country cartoon
• I like Hayao Miyazaki's animation very much!
• I love watching series, especially "Lexx", "Breaking Bad," "Game of Thrones," "True Detective," "The Handmaid's Tale" I'll be glad to get postcards relating to these series.
• Handmade cards - it's great! They have their own unique soul...
In any case, we will be glad to any card! To receive cards is a holiday! :)
I really like it if you write something on the card about you, your country, your work, your family or anything else you would like to share with me.
Please no envelope!
Interesting stamps are embellishment to any card! :)
I'm looking forward your card!!!
Have a nice day!
Happy Postcrossing! :)
