About Peter...

Servus!

I'm a sales director for Volvo Trucks in Munich, the capital of the Free State of Bavaria in the south of the Federal Republic of Germany.

I´m married and we have a 16 y. o. son (boy scout and punk). We live 40 km from Munich in a small village, ruled by two Maine Coon kittens. As a native Bavarian, of course I own a pair of Lederhosen (leather trousers) and all the Bavarian gear you could see at Munich Oktoberfest. Nevertheless I used to travel a lot and I´m proud to be part of an international company.
I like cooking, skiing in the nearby alps and in the summertime I love to ride my wife's Vespa scooter (300 GTS). Once a year, for a few days, we ride to Italy on it.
I support Slow Food: http://www.slowfood.com

Speed of estrangement between nations today is breath-taking. I think every little connection is more valuable than ever.

Scars are beautiful (please no envelope if possible).

Cards with art from local artists or weird/strange motives or a view on your place would be nice (or a weird view on your place from a local artist...).
Vanitas 💀 art.
Also typical plants, patterns, symbols, customs, costumes, tales and history, ad cards from your country.
Important: I appreciate any other card as well (except monkeys and clowns. I have always mistrusted them).

If you happen to have a Vespa card or a card with a raven please send it to me.
Here's what I already have:

In case you like challenges:

If you are from Japan: I like woodblock printings very, very much (especially nature and landscapes). Maybe I get together Hokusai´s 36 + 10 views of mount Fuji one day:

USA & Canada: state and province map cards are always cool and offer interesting informations.

And if you are from Finland: The one and only idol I´ve ever had is the Snufkin. And I am attracted by the mysterious Hattifatteners. In particular I love the more serious, deeper sides of the moomin stories. I started reading the books at the age of 6 and as an adult I read them to my son for bedtime stories.
Look at my collection:

To the Austrian neighbours: A Tipp für a guade Wirtschaft mid am authentischen Essn warad super.

Struggling what to write? Tell me where you would like to live if you had to choose another country. Or tell me about the card. Or about a product of your region, not available anywhere else.

And finally, if you are an artistic talent (unlike me) I would love and admire your drawing/painting.

Thanks for reading and Pfiad Di!
