I love this idea of exchanging hand-written postcards - so NO TOUCHNOTE, no ad/free cards, hand-made, cut-out/glued pictures please! I would like to get REAL postcards - thanks!
I am looking forward to both getting and sending cards. I always enjoy reading profiles and selecting cards to match profiles wishes and I appreciate when others do the same. If you think my profile is too long, just check my favourites for inspiration :)
I DON'T like receiving boring tourist cards with multiple city/country photos. I get to travel a lot for work (I have been to 60 countries so far - still many more to see :) and I make pictures with my camera so I prefer getting something more interesting from people who live in that country knowing there exist interesting artists and illustrators. There are many people on PC who like that type of cards so you can make another person happy...
Though I do not mind painted views or fun images with famous landmarks, e.g. http://www.postcrossing.com/postcards/RU-1341215 http://www.postcrossing.com/postcards/FR-218633)
or pictorial maps, e.g. https://www.postcrossing.com/postcards/HN-236
NEW collection - painted flight attendants and vintage airline posters, e.g. https://www.postcrossing.com/postcards/BS-2224
