My name is Valeriy.
I'm from Saint-Petersburg, one of the most beautiful cities in Russia.
I have a lot of different hobbies. Summer - sailing, skating, biking, running. In winter - skis and skates.
I like collecting various items since childhood. These were mainly coins and stamps. And postcrossing also added postcards. It is very interesting and unusual to receive cards from different parts of our planet.
I love taking pictures, especially when traveling. And yes, of course, I really love to travel. Every year we try to go to a new place. From each city or country, I send myself a postcard, as a memory of the journey. And postcrossing helps me to remember where I was and find out where I haven’t been yet).
My favorite list of postcards (if possible):
** sailing ships (main theme of the collection);
** warships, submarines, etc.;
** football - teams, players, stadiums;
** beautiful or sports cars;
** historical postcards of the First and Second World War;
** medieval castles, fortresses, cathedrals;
** space and astronauts;
** windmills, watermills;
My wife is really interested in pin-up and vintage (color or black and white) cards. I would highly appreciate if you could send this kind of cards for her!
And it would be great to receive beautiful and unusual stamps from all over the world. Stamps from the Europe series would be a great gift)
Happy postcrossing and take care of yourself!
