Dear fellow postcrossers,
I live and work in Berlin and love my job as a translator.
I like a lot of things, but not necessarily on postcards.
For me, postcrossing is travelling around the world. That is why I really love view cards - SINGLE VIEW CARDS! - only exception are German Chronik-Karten - see below. I am NOT particularly keen on NGHTVIEWS, unless they are really well illuminated. If the view cards are sent from the country of origin, I like them written and stamped. If not from country of origin, I prefer to receive them unwritten (or written, including address and used stamp from country of origin or space left for a stamp) in an envelope.
I would be happy to receive one of the following motives:
(If you have the time, please look into my collections to avoid duplicate cards. The albums are sorted in alphabetical order acoording to countries. Thank you.)
UNESCO World Heritage Sites (my wishlist is in my forum profile)
historical buildings like castles, museums, theatres and opera houses, railway stations (https://photos.app.goo.gl/3n6Q6YAPNP3Bc4Cx7), townhalls (https://photos.app.goo.gl/zBpbruBjnxQ8KVqz9), parliaments or other government buildings etc.

historic city views

alleys / narrow lanes in historic town centres: https://photos.app.goo.gl/VH1rpPqii7bYM6dc9
public art: fountains (only those with sculptures - not just water displays),
statues and memorials
retro-style travel/city/landscape posters (like Lantern Press): https://photos.app.goo.gl/pAjpeyicKcBF7yvH6
I like historic views, but recently I received some cards (mainly via the postcrossing forum) that were made to look old and dirty. Please do not send any of them to me. I find them absolutely disgusting.
I am not interested in meeting cards.
I like a few non view topics, too:
women (not girls) in art or photography - with a hat or some other sort of headgear: https://photos.app.goo.gl/U8QjMP7GEyup8LhGA
posters of good movies (oscar winning or oscar nominated films): https://photos.app.goo.gl/gUWHdxEdvsYgW71U8
dancing couples (ballroom): https://photos.app.goo.gl/CBk2YxXuUT5xZ6VU6
I love Inge Löök's old ladies. Missing cards: no. 39, 54, 59, 68, 69, 70
For German postcrossers:
Für mich bitte keine Harenberg-Karten. Die Motive sind zwar schön, aber ich finde die Karten zu dünn.
Bitte auch keine Meeting-Karten. Danke.
Ich sammle Chronik-Karten. Eine Liste der erhaltenen Karten in alphabetischer Reihenfolge: https://docs.google.com/document/d/1r-WjliH7oGavQrYBgJXQtnr4BCrD3WS74UT5yCXlOtU/edit?usp=sharing
