About Günther...

Dear all,
if you might read "anirahtak" backwards, you will find out my first daughter's name, I have used it for a long time as a computer-password.....
I was born in Bremen which is located in the North of Germany; that's why I have chosen for avatar a stamp with the "Bremen Town Musicians"; in 2019 there was a large celebration of the 200 th anniversary for this popular fairy tale.
For almost 40 years I worked as an engineer in automotive business(a little bavarian car-maker called BMW; probably you have heard about him ??); 67 years old now and meanwhile retired in 2020. The BMW headquarter is located in Munich; the company sent me over to South Carolina in the U.S. and Oxford; UK, I stayed with the family 3-5 years each. There I helped with lots of colleagues bring the Z3 and first X5 (US) and MINI (UK) to series production. In the end 3 years in P.R. China, Beijing based, to support local supplier and the production site in Shenyang. In China we had with the family a great time too!

Retirement keeps me busy; there is a little garden, some bees and with my wife we like to hike and bike and in the meantime three grandchildren are looking for their grandparents....
You may send to me all kind of postcards;if you have especially technical landmarks like lighthouses, bridges, water towers, locks, power stations and other and also all kind of technique like cars, trains,planes,ships,machines etc.! Landscapes, city views, map cards and all kind of technical (historic) pictures are also very welcome ! I am not a stamp collector; nevertheless nice stamps ( ...technical related stamps will make the perfect combination!) are also very welcome !

If you do not have anything I am looking for, don't worry! If there is a technical landmark or other remarkable where you live just send me the LINK; I am interested in too ! Fun fact : The first IKEA furniture store in Germany opened on October 17, 1974 in Eching near Munich !!! Thanks in advance and all the best from Eching in the north of Munich; Munich is home of BMW; BAYERN MÜNCHEN and the real "OKTOBERFEST" ! Guenther

Dear Chinese and Russian Post-Crosser: Please add the Chinese / Cyrillic version of your address to your profile as it will greatly improve the chance of your card arriving. Almost 10% of my cards to China / Russia are disappearing - and most of them don't have a Chinese / Cyrillic address, just an English one, which probably may be why the Chinese / Russian postwomen-men find it reasonably difficult to deliver them!
