Good morning/afternoon/evening/night, wherever you are!
*Dear Chinese postcrossers: Please add the Chinese version of your address to your profile, as the chance of your card arriving is vastly improved. 35% of my cards to China disappear - most of which have no Chinese address, which may be the reason the Chinese post reasonably enough find it difficult to deliver?*
I'm a 43 years old, female IT-geek. Originally from Denmark - now living in Swindon, UK. (For the Jasper Fforde readers: We don't have any dodos here, I'm afraid. But there's a Thursday Street just around the corner.)
I have two house rabbits (rescue rabbits), Billy and Brunhilde; they're my avatar. They are "free range" - not caged - in our house.
I like mail, cooking, travelling (I've been to DK/SE/NO/LT/CZ/GB/JE/GG/IM/DE/BE/FR/MC/IT/VA/ES/GR/CH/IN/SG/MY/MZ/TZ/ZA/US) books, history, animals (I'm an RSPCA volunteer) & much more. I studied geophysics/earth sciences at university. I love the colour blue...
Some people are worried that I may not like their card because I already have more than 9000 cards. Don't worry! I'm actually fairly easy to please... my lists below are for guidance only!
**If you are from South or Meso-America, Africa or any rare country, please send me a tourist card from *your own* country!**
In short, I love cards with rabbits/hares, owls, fruits, volcanoes, snow and Daleks.
A longer list (in random order - and it's a *wishlist*, not an order list - be creative!):
-Doctor Who – esp. Daleks
-your favourite museum
-snow - flakes/crystals, landscapes...
-Rabbits/hares, owls, beautiful/weird fish/corals/squid/octopuses/jelly fish and other underwater life (no dolphins and whales, pls.)
-volcanoes, tornadoes, lightning, icebergs, glaciers, rock formations, caves, minerals and stones
-food, especially fruit, vegetables & spices, local markets
-seasonal cards for non-Christian/non-Western holidays, e.g. Diwali, Eid or Chinese New Year
-Roman & Islamic empires
-science, fractals, the Women in Science cards
-Bugs Bunny, Thumper, Totoro, "it's happy bunny" (no matter how insulting the card!)
-A nice tourist card from a place in *your* country
I do *not* like:
-Christmas/Valentine/Halloween cards or Bible cards
-folded cards (Liever geen wenskaarten/dubbele kaarten in een envelop)
-pieces of flimsy paper and no card
-animals dressed up
-commercial/ad cards (unless they fit one of my likes above - there are many beautiful/funny ads!)
*Please no requests for private swaps - I don't do them
*Sorry, I won't register cards I haven't received; it's also against Postcrossing rules
