About Heidi...


I am a 43-year-old married woman living in Eastern Finland. I work as Communications Manager and I am mother for two lovely children. My son is 12 and he loves computer games. My daughter is 9 and her hobbies are riding and playing piano. She also has a postcrossing account. We have an almost 17-year-old longhaired miniature dachshund. We appreciate every single day with him!

My passion is travelling. I have been to 30 countries, mainly in Europe. Our dream is a Caribbean cruise with the whole family. It will come true in November 2022 on Royal Caribbean´s Oasis. I am very excited about it!

I enjoy postcrossing´s travel mode. I have used it in PL (10/2019), HU, NL and PT (7/2022) and SE (8/2022).

Another passion of mine is postcards of UNESCO World Heritage Sites. So far I have a bit more than 400 cards from UNESCO WH Sites written and stamped in the country of origin. The link shows you the sites which I don´t have yet in my collection:
I would be very happy if you could help me with my collection.

Other favourite postcard topics are:

* Sites that are in UNESCO World Heritage tentative list: (Click the country name on the right) I don´t have many of these yet.

* Cards from different global series
My favourite series are "Greetings from.." Wordcloud and U.S. States by LouPaper.

I prefer cards from the country of origin, written and stamped.

You can write about the place shown in the postcard or maybe something about yourself.

Have you been to Finland? Please tell me your best memory from here.

Have you been to a Caribbean cruise? Please tell me about it.

Suomesta toivoisin edellisten lisäksi kuntien mainoskortteja erityisesti asukasmarkkinointiin liittyen. Lisäksi minulta puuttuvat yhdistyksen "Postikortti Suomessa 150v." sarjasta Maarianhamina, Orimattila, Puolanka, Kokemäki ja Kokkola. Olitko mukana miitissä ja sinulta jäi kortteja yli? Olisin kovasti kiitollinen sarjani puuttuvista miittikorteista. Puuttuva kortti on oikein mieluinen ilman miittileimojakin.
