Receive postcards

About Jon...

To those receiving my cards, yes, my name is Jon, not "Son" or "Jan." I just have poor penmanship I guess :)

I love to travel. Mostly to cultural sites like museums or ruins. I have visited Canada, Mexico, Germany, the Philippines, Italy, Vatican City, France, the United Kingdom, San Marino, Monaco, Belgium, the Netherlands, Albania, and Greece.

I don't care what you write, something about where you're from would be cool, I love to travel, maybe I'll get ideas for the next trip.

I love History and Politics. It is what I studied in school. I am fascinated by local politics. I think that the city council has a bigger impact on a person's life than a president. So if you want to tell me some history or politics of your country, state(province), or even town I would find that interesting.

Currently I work in the history field. I am doing biographical research for a book titled "The Relentless Business of Treaties." It was written about all the white men who signed Indian Treaties on behalf of the United States during the 18th and 19th centuries. Spoiler alert: they were not great people.

I am a decent sports fan I suppose. My favorite team is Minnesota United who plays in the American "Major League Soccer." I like the Minnesota Twins in Baseball as well.

I'm going to do what everyone else likes to do. List of postcards I like :)

-Important people
-Famous buildings
-Historical sites
-Beautiful Nature pictures
-Or old adverts, for beer and cigarettes especially
-Nerdy stuff is cool too! Like Star Wars or Harry Potter
-Whatever you have lying around. I just love getting a card!
-Old churches
-Public transit. Like trolleys, subways, trains, or busses.

Just so you know. I adore the Great State of Minnesota. I was born and raised there and consider myself more Minnesotan than American :) I finally just moved back into my hometown of St. Paul!

I love this site! Getting mail from across the planet is amazing. I love hearing about the lives of others, it makes me feel so connected. Please tell me a bit about your life, where you're from, just basically whatever. As long as it mean's something to you!

And this is going to sound strange maybe even mean but I will only register cards that I physically receive. Sometimes cards get lost in the mail, these things happen. But that's one of the things about postcrossings. If you want to resend me a card by all means please do! But again, a card will only be registered when I physically receive one.
