I used to collect postcards when I was a child, then got away from it for many years until I discovered Postcrossing! I am very interested in learning about other countries/regions and cultures, so if you don't know what to write please tell me something about yourself and/or where you live. You can also tell me something about the image on the card or why you chose it. I would also appreciate it if you could write the date on the card.
I am very happy to receive any type of postcard, including standard tourist viewcards (and it is ok to send a card that is of a different country than where it is mailed from). Please don't feel you have to send something that I mention below. I wrote the list because sometimes I don't know what kind of card to send. If you would like ideas for what to send me, I especially am interested in:
* anything special to you about where you live
* national/state/regional maps or flags
* nature/the outdoors/the environment/plants, trees & herbs
* anything related to history - people, places, buildings, etc
* animals, especially black cats, wolves and bears
* vintage/old or vintage reprint cards
* holidays (local/national/international) - send these any time of year!
* Marvel comics, Lord of the Rings/Hobbit, Star Trek, Harry Potter, Star Wars, Disney
A few special interests I have that may be difficult for most Postcrossers to send, but would really thrill me to receive cards:
* images of Ireland (especially Limerick, because I used to live there)
* UNESCO World Heritage sites
* Olympics (past or present)
* US Postcrossers: I would love maps of the following states to complete my collection: Arkansas, Connecticut, Colorado, Illinois, Iowa, Kansas, Kentucky, Maine, Nevada, New Jersey, North Carolina, North Dakota, Oklahoma, Rhode Island, South Dakota, Utah, Vermont, West Virginia and Wyoming
One of the things I love about Postcrossing is being surprised and excited to receive a card that may not be on my list of favorites (because I don't know it exists) but is just so wonderful. So have fun with it - as far as I am concerned that is what Postcrossing is all about!
