About Solferino...

Hello, my name is Oska.

I like the idea of making random connections with people in foreign countries through the exchange of postcards. And that it doesn't have to be more than that, like smiling at a person you see in the street whom you may never see again. I also like the fact that you have to first give to receive.

I am interested in language. I only pretend to speak the languages other than English that I have listed, but if you write to me in one of those (French, German or Japanese) I should be able to puzzle it out. And you are welcome to write to me in any other language as well - if I can't work out the meaning I will enjoy having the mystery of an unknown message on my card :)

If you are wondering what sort of card to send me I like cards which are beautiful or interesting. So that would include:

- natural landscapes
- people
- art objects (paintings, sculptures, historical, etc.)
- wildlife
- food, recipes
- black & white photos
- and many other things

Of course, browsing my favourites gallery will also give you a feel for the type of images I like.

If you enjoy making postcards out of your art or photography I would be *really* happy to receive such a unique creation of yours.

Also, as a child I was enchanted by the Moomin books. That child lives on in me so if Moomin cards are available to you I would be very happy to receive one, especially any featuring Snufkin or Little My.

But the usual Postcrossing rule applies of course - send me whatever you like!
