Niklotis a member in Germany . He has been a member for over 3 years (1,314 days).
In march 2014 I discovered postcrossing. I collected viewcards before but now I'm totaly fixed from postcrossing to share my hobby with many people worldwide. I'm an active member of the px forum, too.
I'm working as a teacher for maths and geography, so I like postcards with sights of the place you life in very much. If you have designed and printed your own postcard of your city or village I'll like to get them.
In my spare time I like to take photos, go by bicycle, canoeing or camping, too. This summer I spent my holidays in Moldova and Ukraine.
I'm working voluntary in Red Cross Projects. In october we take part at the german champoinship, as we're qualified.
And - if I'm not on postcrossing meetings I spend time with my sons.
If your native tongue is one of the following pyccкuū, français, magyarul, polski, українська - please use it and not english.
At all I like your card - with your words it's special. But I've some "NO-goes" which I don't like, may be you can avoid them: foldered, dogs, military and I don't like Christmas, Easter or any other over commercialised stuff.
