I'm a mechanical engineer and enjoying retirement. :)
I live with my wife in a town with 70,600 inhabitants in Germany. Our dog, called UNION, unfortunately died on December 8th, 2020 at the age of almost 16 years. You can find his life story on my website. 🐶
I'm an avid tennis player. Unfortunately I have to quit for health reasons this active sport after 40 years. My other hobbies are photographing and traveling to foreign countries to learn about other people and their cultures 📷 ✈ .
Postcrossing is another way by people from all over the world to experience something new.
I love postcards of famous buildings 🏛🏰, beautiful landscapes, 💚
Lighthouses: ❤ (but please do not send "Lighthouse Aniva, Sakhalin Island, Russia"; I have this postcard three times already)
Sights from around the world: ❤
Wildlife: ❤ (polar bears, penguins) 🐻
and people as they live 👫.
Since I have already received quite a few of the above postcard requests, I decided to expand my wishlist. I would like to start a collection with the "Blue Cats postcards" by Rina Zeniuk 💌:
Christmas cards and New Year greetings are welcome in December and January ❄🎄.
It's nice to get postcards from my wish list. But now I get the same motifs more and more often. To avoid this, it would make sense to look at my favorites before sending them. - Many thanks! 🎉
(Please NO multi-views and maxi-cards, if possible).
Some beautiful postcards and stamps that I have received, can be found on my website http://www.friedhelms-homepage.de under "Postcrossing". 👍
Sometimes I send postcards that I made myself from my photos 💌.
I scan all my postcards before sending. If you send me cards, which are not scanned and uploaded, it's no problem. I will do it for you before registering.
