ANY POSTCARD IS OK. You can send any kind of postcard with a good taste but it can be tasteless as well - postcard with a twist. You can surprise me! You may read about myself and my interests below or look at my favourites on the Postcards Wall, if you want more personal choice.
I am software engineer - ICT professional. Hobbies: travel, movies, reading (incl. comics), music and winter swimming. Fan of black humour, sarcasm, irony and witty quotes. Interested in popular culture in general. Special interest in space technology.
I like also retro/vintage cards, art, humour, science fiction. Weird, strange things as every day is. Wacky tacky bizarre kitsch. The list below are only suggestions, not excluding anything.

Three humble wishes:
1) Write date, location and your name incl. username on the card. It's nice and sometimes mail destroys ID so I need other info pieces for registering.
2) If the card has message in Cyrillic/Chinese/Japanese/Arabic etc. please translate it in English.
3) If you have received a card from me, please write a short Description for the image on the Postcard Wall.
