We are Roman and Anastasia. We love history, jokes, music (we play guitar and violin) and anime. We keep a parrot and a dog.
Our city is mostly known for Immanuel Kant who was born here in 1724 (the city was called Königsberg back then). Also 90% of the world's extractable amber is located here. Currently you can visit Kaliningrad by applying for a free online visa: https://electronic-visa.kdmid.ru/klgd_home_en.html
Please feel free to pick ANY POSTCARD you like :)) Meet-up postcards are fine too.
Recently we came across the phrase which we totally agree with: "Please don't worry about duplicates, and do NOT spend time looking through my received postcards. It is YOU who makes the card special. Each card is different in its own way. It is YOU who chooses the card, not me" (by Jussi)
We love postcards just as they are - WITH text and WITHOUT envelopes :)
We would love to know about you and place you live, things you like and dislike, your opinion on events around you and in the world - please, please write something :)
We will be glad to hear from you!
IN CASE YOU NEED AN IDEA WHAT TO WRITE:
🎄 Maybe you can tell us what your family cooks for the New Year and other holidays.
🎁 Or which holiday is the closest to the time you are writing a postcard.
🥳 Or how do you celebrate birthdays.
📚 Or something about your lifestyle.
🚗 Do you prefer car, bike or public transport?
🏡Is it common to move from parents right after the school or after certain age or event (marriage, first job)?
🍕 Do you order food or cook it yourself?
🎓 How the schools and universities in your country treat cheating? Can you get away with it or the punishment is inevitable?
💡 But those are just ideas, feel free to write whatever you like.
