Hi everyone! I am a 45 year old, transgender (MtF), Muslim (Niqabi), living in the Hudson Valley area of upstate New York. (Kingston is a city in Ulster County, New York, United States. It is 91 miles (146 km) north of New York City and 59 miles (95 km) south of Albany.) I love to travel and meet people from all over the world! I enjoy learning about different cultures and languages. I specifically collect postcards of religious/spiritual themes (Churches, Temples, Mosques, Convents, Monasteries, Monks, Nuns, Places of Worship, Statues, Sacred Images, Relics, Pagan/Shaman, Traditional/Ethnic religions, Mythology, Mythological Characters, Saints, etc.)!!!
I am a Veterinary Nurse and am currently heavily involved in animal rights, animal advocacy, animal rescue and rehabilitation, etc. (So- you can always send me postcards with animal themes and stamps with animals on them!) I have also recently returned to school to learn Fashion and Textile Design...so anything fashion related would be very cool to receive too!
I have traveled to 42 countries: Canada, Mexico, Guatemala, Honduras, El Salvador, Peru, Ecuador, Chile, Brazil, Trinidad and Tobago, Bahamas, Morocco, Tunisia, Egypt, Mozambique, South Africa, Turkey, Pakistan, India, Nepal, Sri Lanka, Thailand, Japan, New Zealand, Portugal, Spain, UK, Ireland, France, Italy, Hungary, Czech Republic, Slovak Republic, Serbia, Ukraine, Croatia, Greece, Romania, Estonia, Sweden, Denmark, and Norway,
I have lived, for an extended time, in: Canada, Japan, India, Peru, UK, Pakistan, and Hungary.
If you don't have any religious or spiritual oriented postcards, I would also love to get postcards of the following:
-Royal Families (From around the world)
-National, Traditional, or Folk Costumes
-Flags of all Nations/States/Provinces/Regions
-Postcards with the names/locations printed on front
-Anne Geddes Postcards
-Postcards with money or currency on it...
-Lesbian, Gay, Transgender, Bisexual, or Queer
-The following animals: Dogs (DOGS!!! I *love* dogs! I own a Russian Toy (Русский той) and he is my best friend! So- ANY postcard with dogs on it is a good choice for me!), Horses, Hummingbirds, Flamingos, Giraffes, Owls, Seahorses, Sea turtles, and/or Hedgehogs. (The only animals I don't really care for are snakes and spiders....please don't send postcards with these motifs.)
***If you could please scan your postcard before sending it, that would be greatly appreciated!***
***PLEASE NO HANDMADE OR ADVERTISING POSTCARDS!***
***ONE FINAL REQUEST: Since I also collect stamps from around the world, I would really appreciate nice stamps on my postcards. Thank you in advance!***
