Hi there, in September 2012 I read an article about postcrossing and - as an IT-manager of Deutsche Post DHL very well connected to letters and postcards - decided to join the network and check what will happen.
Meanwhile, I'm retired and live in Zwingenberg (see web-site), a nice little town with approx. 7.000 inhabitants in a small wine-area between Frankfurt/Main and Heidelberg. I live with a partner (from a certain age on "girlfriend" sounds a little bit funny) but we don't have kids. I like taking pictures and travelling and spend a lot of time with friends hiking, joining a Quiz night in a Pub or visiting local events.
My preferred type of postcard shows something of your town or the area where you live. If possible don't use homemade cards. Please write something about yourself, what you are doing, where you like to travel to, what you like. Don't leave the card blank!
Take care, happy postcrossing,
PS: The avatar shows a valid stamp from Bhutan, a small
kingdom in Himalaya mountains. At the General Post Office
in Thimphu, the capital, they do print stamps with your
own image. And yeah, up there it's me!
