I am Claudia, a 53 years old woman from Germany. In November 1997 I moved to Ireland because I found a job here. Since then I am living in this beautiful country.
I am married with my long time partner Rainer on the 18.10.13, who is also from Germany. But before that we had been together for nearly 13 years.
Besides postcards I love travelling, reading, writing letters, playing Pokémon Go, listening to music. I have an office job in the financial area in northern Dublin.
I am a big fan of Irish singer Chris de Burgh since 1983. Since then I have seen many many concerts (so now you can guess where my user name comes from .....)
To give you an idea which kind of cards I love here is my list of favourites:

Cards from my Postcrossing and Flickr favs
This is only a wishlist NOT a list of demands. Themes I do not really like are cats, multiviews and Disney/Anime. If you can please avoid these.
I always send real postcards and I would like to receive real postcards. Please be fair and do not send me folded cards, photos and everything which is not a postcard. And please do not give my address to a third party like Touchnote or any other online company. Thank you!
