About Krista...

Hello from Gouda!

I'm 36 years old Finnish woman, currently living in The Netherlands together with my Dutch husband, our two boys, two funny cats and one cute cockatiel. I like spending time outdoors, taking nature photographs, geocaching, cycling, traveling, cooking and birding.

I'm not working at the moment, but I used to have a job as a mailman. I really loved my work, because I have always been interested in all kinds of postal things (sorting & delivering mail, stamps, letters, postcards...) and because I was lucky to have the most amazing coworkers. I hope to find a similar job here in Holland :).

I'd be happy to receive all kinds of postcards. Below are some examples of themes that I think are especially nice, but please don't feel like you must send me cards that match with these themes. I'm happy with everything I get, just as long as they are postcards :D.

* Birds (I love all kinds of birds, but I have a soft spot for parrots, owls & chickens :)
* Trees and forests
* Trains and railways
* Lighthouses, castles & windmills
* Wild flowers & animals
* Farming (animals, farms, fields, tools, tractors :)
* Mountains (because there aren't any in Holland! :o)
* Lakes, rivers, seas & oceans
* Fish, reptiles & amphibians (♥ frogs & snakes)
* Insects (esp. butterflies)
* Beautiful landscapes
* Anything about Lapland (it's my favorite place in the world)
* Airplanes & airports
* Australia (I love this country!!)
* Cats
* Anything that is related to The X-Files (TV show)
* All things postal (like mailboxes, postal outfits and so on)

Traditional cityviews are always welcome, too! :)

I have also put some cards on my postcard wall as favorites that would really make my day if I ever found them (or any cards alike) in my mailbox. I understand most of them must be very hard to come by and I honestly don't expect that everyone is going to send me these. I have just been so amazed by all the beautiful cards there are in the world :).

Happy Postcrossing to everyone! :)
