icamon(or Monica) is a member in Sweden . She has been a member for over 5 years (1,833 days).
I live in a city of ~110.000 inhabitants in south-west Sweden. I'm 62 years old and in early retirement. I don't travel much nowadays; but enjoy expanding my views of the world through postcrossing.
In this context, I prefer postcards without envelopes. I appreciate nice stamps on the cards, but do not collect stamps separately.
At the top of my wish-list are fairy tale / fantasy / children's books illustrations, and other artwork. I'm also interested in national costumes, castles and other buildings of historical interest. If you send a card of a city or a special building or landscape, I'd love to learn a bit about it - or why you chose it.
Other themes I like are clocks/time, seasons, books and reading, letters and writing, and anything to do with tea. I love the fantasy worlds of Alice in Wonderland, Narnia, the Moomins, Lord of the Rings and Harry Potter; and classic mythical creatures like dragons, unicorns and fairies. I'm also fond of owls and butterflies.
I'm generally interested in language(s), and besides those listed above I can also read Danish, Norwegian and Dutch.
PS. The cards in my Favourites section are examples of cards I have seen and liked, but do not already have.
