Postcrossing seems to be a complementary activity to my other online interests (geocaching & waymarking). I also collect pathtags & geocoins, but try to focus my collection on cats & Australian ones... otherwise it can get very expensive!
As you can see by my avatar, I am a cat lover - I would be especially pleased to receive postcards with cats on them, and always put them in my favorites.
If you don't have any cat cards, please choose one that you find beautiful. (I prefer postcards NOT to be in an envelope - I really like to keep the stamps ON the postcard for posterity.)
I'm only interested in official postcrossing cards with a tracking number (so they can show up in my gallery), so it's not much point making any offers for direct swaps - sorry - I don't want you to waste your time trying! Also, it's not much point asking for another copy of a card I have already sent, because I only ever had one copy of each postcard, and nearly all of them are no longer in production.
I scan & upload all of the postcards that I send and receive (but certainly don't mind if you have already scanned postcards you send me - it saves me the effort of doing it!). Unfortunately I don't have all the images of the early postcards that I sent (hopefully the recipients will scan them eventually).
One day I hope that I get the opportunity to send a postcard to someone who lives in the town of Tealby in England!
I love walking (mostly walking 10km - 42km marathons) and am part of the IML and IVV. I hope to be able to travel and walk in many other countries one day - I have to save my pennies first though! At the moment my main annual event is the Canberra International Walking Weekend (www.aussiewalk.com.au) - I would love it if a postcrossing member came along - let me know if you do! (Actually a postcrosser did come to the walk in 2009!)
I have a large number of "historic" Aussie maxi cards (1990-1997) sitting in my cupboard doing nothing, so I thought this was a great use for them. What is a maxi card I hear you ask? It is a specially themed postcard released with every new stamp that the post office produces - so the postcard is designed to match the stamp (and also have an interesting first day of issue post mark). I will start by sending the 1997 maxi cards & work back in time, so the postcard you receive will be at least 11 years old. It really is an eclectic collection of postcards, but I try to select something that will appeal to the recipient.
