I´m Reijo, after working in the same company for 36 years,
I retired in the spring of 2019 and left the town to move
back to my childhood home on a small island near the
mainland. Hoping to travel more in the coming
years (favorite country: Greece) and in the summertime
tend to my garden which consists of about 3000 different
species of perennial flowers, bushes and trees from the
northern hemisphere. My specialities are white or pink-
berried Asian species of Rowan trees.
In the wintertime I sow to get more plants and take care
of my houseplants. (If one of your hobbies is houseplants,
tell me, maybe we can do some swapping).
My love for pop music started in the early teenage years.
The best music was made in the 1970´s!! Also like rock,
soul and country. I´ve seen many of my favorite artists
both in Finland and abroad. My hometown of Pori has
the longest ongoing jazz festival in Europe, www.porijazz.fi
where many superstars such as Elton John and Stevie
Wonder have performed as headliners.
My favorite song of all time is: Elton John 'Goodbye
Yellow Brick Road' 1973.
My love for movies also developed early on, especially
Hollywood golden age, science fiction, period drama and
Indiana Jones/007/Mission Impossible-style action.
However i do not wish cards about pop or movie stars
(or flowers, I see them enough live)
but rather I would prefer COLOURFUL cards of the following:
*SKYSCRAPERS! or other tall buildings in your town/country
*waterfalls, rivers, lakes, rainforests , rock formations and
natural wonders of your country
*jewellery, gem stones, as in www.postcrossing.com/postcards/US-6478046
*city views, old town
