About Inga...

Hi, I have been a member of Postcrossing for three years + some months. In Mayl 2018 I have received postcards from 41 countries through the Postcrossing system. I like to send and receive postcards through this wonderful system. I look forward to receive the next postcard from a new country through Postcrossing. Therefore I do not, and don't have extra time or energy for direct swaps of postcards. Please understand my situation.

I live in Reykjavik, Iceland. I remember times when people used to send postcards to each other, especially when they were travelling abroad. Nowadays people use mostly Facebook, twitter, e-mail, sms and other means to communicate.

Many people miss those times when they received a postcard or a letter by post, with a stamp. Today, people mostly receive post from financial or governmental institutions, and without stamps.

I appreciate Postcrossing because it encourages us all to start writing postcards again.

I like single view postcards. Ad cards are welcome. A card of a Royal family, president or a country's leader, a costume from your country, would be nice. I am also interested in football cards and military cards.

I collect stamps, and I am interested in food-stamps, art/design, religious, ecology, military, and stamps from Germany, New Zealand and Belgium.

My focus these days: recycling stuff, such as plastic and paper, stop buying plastic bags, I use multi-use bags when going shopping. The plast is killing whales and other creatures in the sea. I make bags out of old and worn T-shirts.

I run a sales stall at the Reykjavik down town flea market Kolaport, near the harbour. I sell vintage clothes, books, used Icelandic stamps, home-made stuff of pure Icelandic wool, and some other second hand items.

If you happen to visit Iceland, you will probably meet me at the flea-market.

Hope that you enjoy doing the Postcrossing at this interesting web-site!
