** I received a card from Yongshan in China today - I cannot register it, as it's been over a year since you got my address and the card has been deleted from the system, but I wanted to thank you at least this way :) **
I'm 37, live in Krakow, a beautiful city which used to be Poland's capital a long time ago, I like sci-fi books and TV series, writing letters to my penpals and the sea :) I'm also a big fan of the LotR trilogy (books, not movies).
I am very happy about the idea of receiving postcards from around the world - if you are going to send me one, please choose a card that will show me a bit of the area where you live :)
Postcrossing for me is a way to travel and to see the world, all those places I might never visit.
So please, send me a card from your country, not some other one. Treat me as a tourist visiting your area, your city, your country.
The best thing for me is when the view on the card, the stamp and the ID are a match - i.e. all from the same country. If I send viewcards, I send Polish ones from Poland. Please do the same for me :)
Please send your cards written&stamped, not in envelope! :)
My favourite topics of the cards are:
- nature/landscape scenic views - oceans, seas, lakes, beaches, waterfalls, rivers, forests, meadows, mountains, native flora and fauna - this is my greatest wish :)
- cities, famous buildings, historical sites, architecture
- customs and folklore
Other cards I will enjoy a lot:
- Edwin van der Sar/Netherlands' national football team
- astronomy and space exploration related (I have an MSci in astronomy)
- Babylon 5/Doctor Who/Stargate/The X-Files
- Star Wars/Star Trek/Lord of the Rings/Marvel Cinematic Universe
- Irish or Scottish dancing (soft shoes, hard shoes, SCD, Highland - I've been learning them for years!)
- fantasy illustrations (a new wish - let's see what comes out of it)
- art of Chen Shu Fen
I know these are hard to get, so no worries if you don't have any, they are just wishes, and a viewcard is always a good choice :)
Liebe Postcrosser aus Deutschland - falls ihr die Postkarten aus den Harenberg-Kalendern habt, die deutsche Ansichten zeigen, bitte sucht nicht weiter nach einer Karte für mich! Ich liebe diese und habe bisher nicht sehr viele bekommen :)
I also appreciate nice/commemorative stamps on postcards :D
Just please, do not send me any Touchnote cards, or cards from similar online services.
Wenn Du Deutsch sprichst, bitte schreib auf Deutsch! Ich benutze die Sprache täglich in meiner Arbeit :)
Si hablas castellano, puedes escribir tu postal también en ese idioma.
You could also try simple French or Russian - I have studied both languages but it's been a while. Still, I would like to try. I read and write in Cyrillic alphabet.
Thank you very much for reading and I'm looking forward to all the cards :)
