Hi everyone, I'm Sonja and I live in the very West of Germany. I've always collected the postcards my friends sent me from their vacations and I'm still interested mostly in tourist-style cards. I even buy them for myself whenever I'm at a new place, even (especially) if it is not a popular tourist region.
My favourite cards show sights from where you live, cities, buildings, landmarks, local nature and wildlife (squirrels), customs and traditions, and I think it's nice if the name of the place is printed on the front. But then again, what I like most about postcrossing is to be surprised by beautiful and unusual cards.
As much as I love postcards I'm not that passionate about stamps, so I don't mind getting the boring ones.
