About Jouko...

Hello fellow Earthlings (and alien visitors),

I'm male from southern Finland and curious about everything in this world and beyond. I like to visit historical places, search museums for things I've read or seen pictures and just to watch nature around me. I'll never stop wondering the variety of this world, natural or man made ...Actually, sometimes I need a good kick to come back to real world. As a child I dreamed diving with Jacques-Yves Cousteau's crew and sailing around the world in "Calypso", decades have gone but dreams still live.

I've seen so much nice cards sent by postcrossers around the world that I can't favorite all of them (believe me I try ..), but here is some themes which will help in my itch of curiousness :

- Tourist cards and reprints of old tourist cards
- Nature and wildlife, including all weird and wonderful creatures, formations and phenomenons
- Traditional handcrafts, costumes, architecture, music instruments, folklore
- Church altars, Saints, pilgrimages, Virgin Mary
- Mosques, shrines, monasteries, temples etc. religion related places
- National memorials, especially those dedicated to veterans and independence
- Anything beer related (my little, secret bad habit)
- Vintage/retro -style ad and travel poster -cards, U.S. WPA Posters -cards
- Art from rock paintings to romantic period in 1800's (modern styles gives me headache)
- Rose Rigden's crazy animal cards (South African)
- Pin ups, Duane Bryers' "Hilda", Betty Boop, Gensodo etc.
- Tattoos
- Any kind of mythical, fantasy pictures, funny aliens
- Coat-of-Arms and other heraldic themes
- Cruise ships, old and new
- Reprints of old cards showing people, all kinds

Because I like old things you can also send me older or even "an ancient" postcard.

I always appreciate little information about your local area's everyday life or special/unique/weird "thingys", or small note about the card if there's no English description. If you are artistic I'd be happy receiving small drawings or why not make yourself the whole card ...
N.B. I won't upload backside drawings to any media, they are only mine, mine ... preciousss ...

Like my favorite singer Juice Leskinen wrote : "No one survives the Life", be happy and enjoy what you have.

Congratulations of reaching the end of my babbling ... Peace and respect ;)
