About Tanja...


My name is Tanja, and I live with my wonderful wife of 27 years. We have two daughters, 17 and 20.

When I’m outdoors...

I enjoy kayaking, swimming, bicycling and walking with my dog, Lola, a little black & white terrier who has stolen my heart. I am a scuba diver, too. I like hiking & camping, especially when we get a big group of other families to join us. I’m passionate about traveling to new places, trying new foods & learning about other cultures.

When I’m indoors...

I also love reading all sorts of books, but especially science fiction, fantasy, historical fiction & cookbooks. I'm a huge fan of audiobooks as well. I also like knitting, cross stitching, watching movies, meditating and trying out new recipes. What do you like to do?

I recently started an Instagram account (my link is above), and I’m following lots of Postcrossing and “snailmail” accounts. I really like seeing the photos posted from Postcrossing meet-ups around the world! ๐ŸŒ

A little bit about postcards...

♥๏ธ Please send me any postcard you like! ♥๏ธ

โœ๏ธ I am working on my German and Spanish- please feel free to write to me in those languages so I can keep practicing.

If you don’t know what to write on the postcard, please tell me about one of your favorite books. Or what you love to do on holiday. Do you have a favorite cafe or restaurant? What’s it called, and what do you order there?

Envelopes, no envelopes, you choose. I look forward to connecting with you by postcard!
