About Irina...

! Dear postcrossers, I'm upset when I get a card from one country with a view of another country, so I kindly ask you to avoid those cards, if it’s possible.
Hello! :)
My name is Irina, I'm 33, live in Saint-Petersburg. I studied Culturology at university, but I'm an office worker now - things happen this way, you know. I enjoy reading, love nature and adore music. I'm interested in foreign languages, psychology, space, like to learn something new, like to play computer and board games, like needlework (cross-stitching and other embroidery) and other nice things. I'm also a big fan of biathlon :)

I appreciate every card I receive. Here are just some ideas how to make it special for me :) I like:
- cards from my Favorites :)
- maxicards
- nature: landscapes, national parks, four seasons, rain, snow, rainbow, sky, mist etc.
- the four elements (any image, real or not)
- flowers (especially cornflower, lily of the valley, forget-me-not, dandelion, peony), trees, grass
- botanical illustrations
- owls, wolves, cats, hedgehogs, racoons, foxes, birds (please, in their natural appearance, I mean, not in dress or something like that)
- tea/coffee
- food, drinks, spices, sweets and pastry
- space, starry sky, aurora borealis
- clocks of all kinds
- books and letters
- Christmas and New Year cards in December and January
- Keep Calm
- Nouvelles Images
- Greetings from... (got: AT, CH, CN, CZ, DE, DK, FI, FR, HK, JP, LI, LV, LU, NO, PL, RO, SI, TH, TW, US)
- Wordcloud (got: DE)
- Flags of the World (got: AT, CN, CZ, DK, JP, SK) / Maps of the World / National symbols / Postcard World Explorer (got: DE)
- Icons of Countries (got: CN)
- cards with facts about your area, like this one: https://www.postcrossing.com/postcards/US-4626636
- symbols of your country/region/town
- infographics
- cosy things and places
- roads and paths
- keys
- castles
- gothic architecture
- Middle Ages
- maps (modern, old, fictional)
- UNESCO World Heritage
- biathlets and biathlon events
- fantasy and science fiction
- flower fairies
- Pusheen the Cat
- "Living like a cat"
- The Lord of the Rings, The Hobbit, Game of Thrones, Firefly, The Big Bang Theory, Dexter, Black Mirror
- PC games, especially World of Warcraft, Guild Wars, adventure and strategy games, RPG (they may be self-made or self-printed)
- my favorite writers (Ray Bradbury, Haruki Murakami, Stephen King) and favorite bands (see here: http://www.lastfm.ru/user/Rainyfi) - anything about

But any nice view from your area is also ok, of course! No stress :)

I appreciate beautiful stamps too, if you can use them - do it! :)

It would be nice if you wrote something else besides 'happy postcrossing'. For example, your favorite book/song/film, your mood at the moment, the weather conditions etc. =) I wait for not only a card itself, but also your message. Please, don't leave your card blank!

All the best and happy summer/winter! :)

Thank you for reading this to the end)
