My collection, please take a look to avoid sending duplicate cards:
Hello stranger, nice to meet you!
My name is Sander, 43-year-old, and I live in the beautiful city of Groningen, Netherlands. In daily life I work at the university. In my free time I enjoy lots of things, like books, movies, going to concerts, travelling and playing chess.
Groningen is a typical student city, with a young population, very dynamic and lively. Most people move around by bike, Groningen has been called 'bicycling capital of the world'! To get an idea: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cWf5fbSUNAg.
Feel free to write anything you want. But if you want a suggestion: I love books and movies, maybe you can recommend me your favourites. Sharing a secret, that would be interesting too. Or maybe some travel suggestions. Please do write more than just 'Happy Postcrossing'.
Of course each card will be very much appreciated, but here are a few themes that I especially like (in random order):
✪✪ psychology, neuroscience, the human brain, therapy, Freud, Rorschach etc.
✪✪ create your own card about the human brain, would be great!
✪✪ parodies of famous paintings (I collect Munch's 'The Scream' parodies)
✪ movies, movie festivals
✪ people under water (but no diving gear)
✪ beautiful women, pin-ups, tasteful female erotica
✪ spiral staircases
