Hey there! I'm Shaun, a 24 year old trans guy from Finland. I grew up in a small town in the western part of Finland but moved to the Helsinki area a couple of years ago. I now live in Vantaa, just north of Helsinki.
I'm currently working different shifts at Finland's largest mail distribution centre but I'm going back to school in August to continue studying CNC machining.
I live with my boyfriend who also loves Postcrossing -- I introduced him to it 3 years ago and he's still very enthusiastic about it.
Ever since I was a little kid I had wanted to travel and see the world but due to a difficult chronic illness I've had to give up on that dream as I wouldn't be able to truly enjoy traveling. Postcrossing brings me endless amounts of joy and helps me discover the world in a different way.
I'm an introvert and enjoy doing things on my own. Gaming is one of my favorite activities. I play MMORPGs (mainly SWTOR, LOTRO and ESO) as well as other story-driven games and series like Mass Effect, The Elder Scrolls, Dragon Age, Uncharted, Fallout, The Witcher, GTA etc. I'm a massive Star Wars geek (not really a fan of the movies, though) and own 160+ Star Wars novels. I love science fiction and my favorite author is Isaac Asimov. Other than that I also love reading anything by J.R.R. Tolkien and keep wishing Middle-earth was real -- fortunately video games exist ;)
I love almost all kinds of music, especially punk rock, progressive/classic rock, reggae, ska, old school hip-hop, heavy metal and pretty much anything from the 80s. My favorite band is Rush.
I also exercise a lot and go to the gym 3-5 times a week.
As for postcards...
Got lots of viewcards lying around? You're in luck - I love viewcards the most! I'm not able to travel at the moment due to my health so I'm hoping to see the world in a different way!
I would love to receive cards of:
- Unesco World Heritage Sites (illustrations/drawings of Unesco WHS are welcome as well if there are any!)
- bridges and landmarks
- national parks
- trains and train stations
- ski jumping
- Formula 1
- anything from my favorites
My favorite viewcards are modern cards that show a single view with the name of the place. I also prefer cards of standard size (15 x 10 cm).
I love fully written cards! If you don't know what to write, please tell me about...
- your favorite video games
- your favorite sci-fi books (have you read anything by Isaac Asimov?)
- things that you like or dislike about your city/country
- random facts about your city/country
- words or sentences in your language
- what is life like for LGBTQ+ individuals in your country?
I prefer getting my cards written and stamped, without envelopes. Thank you!
