EDIT: Hi fellow postcrossers! Registration in action! So sorry about the delay. I have had my account inactive for a year and opened it for a couple of weeks. I didn't expect this kind of FLOOD on super lovely postcard. Thanks for reading!
I love choosing postcards. I always try to get the right card and stamp for the right person. As you know sometimes it is so easy, sometimes very hard. I have a nice collection of postcards as I have been buying them since 80's. it is just a lovely feeling when you read the profile and suddenly figure out that you already have a card for him/her, bought years ago.
But also receiving a postcard is such a joy. I am not picky about cards :-) but I truly like the traditional postcards that tourists send. You know, showing the main railway station, the market place. Name of the city printed to the card with curly letters ... If you have a "boring" tourist card and a "cute" card, please send me the tourist card. I also love stamps. Though I have never bothered (to learn) to collect them I admire the pictures and cultural messages they reveal.
No envelopes please. I love seeing how the cards have travelled. Some might get hit but I still love them dearly. I do keep all the cards I receive.
I also scan all the postcards that I send, please do the same if you can. IF you don't' have a scanner, no problem. Actually I use Google Scan app that I have in my iPhone. It's super!
In line with that appears to a general policy here I don't make the cards I receive favourites. I rather say my thanks with registration or on the "Description" of the card. And just one tiny wish, please do not delete my card uploads since I like to see what I have sent :-)
Some extra tips: Kings, queens, presidents etc inc. Mr Trump and Mr Putin are most welcome. And if you live in Russia I would love to receive postcards showing beautiful metro stations. Also original vintage USSR postcards have a special place in my collection..
Please notice that I am not into direct swaps generally, but if you wish to do a swap with maxi cards drop me a line.
P.S. Finally something personal. Here is my instagram. Mostly pix of our dogs Pim & Morris in our home. instagram.com/pim_and_morris
