Hello, a Stranger who just got my address!
I'm Olga. My real passion is history and architecture! Once I volunteered for Buchenwald Work Camp Memorial. But I'm interested in other voluntary and charity international programs and opportunities.
For now, I send cards to sick children. You can do it, too. Check on http://www.sendkidstheworld.com/
My favorite cards are those that show typical views of YOUR place (I mean, from your country), maybe, even cliche cards!!! Impress me with the architecture and nature of your cities/towns/villages for me to make up my must-visit list! That's what I appreciate most! Scotland (especially Isle of Skye), Italy, Iceland, Faroe Islands, Greece are my top 5 destinations! Anyway, every country is unique, and I'm very much interested in receiving cards, that show this uniqueness.
I also love photo-like or painting-like cards showing
❤ lavender fields (as a view card)
❤ lovely kids
❤ Christmas (all year round)
❤ birthday cards (in January)
❤ ice skating (no real skaters, only painting-like cards or retro/vintage ones, please)
❤ foxes (no photos, only painted please)
That would be great if you could check my faves (they are the cards I don't have... yet :))
Don't consider it rude, but feel like I have to share a list of cards I'm not so happy to receive. I'm not picky, I just want all of us to respect each other's wishes. Thanks for understanding!
So, I don't really like any of the cards showing
❌ countries you DON'T live in (e.g. places where you spent a vacation or happened to visit once - because I've already received repeated cards with different country codes)!!!
❌ animals, birds, people (whoever they are!!!!)
❌ food, drinks, still-life paintings, and photos
❌ abstract illustrations or drawings, book illustrations, cartoon characters, movie characters, museum exhibits
❌ space views, space map views, bird-eye views (when you can't see anything in the picture), super zoomed-in images
❌ symbols, logos/trademarks, book covers,
❌ card-size national flags or state emblems
❌ some "funny", "humorous" cards with funny writings on them
❌ handmade/self-printed cards and ad cards!
❌ Postcrossing meet-ups
I'm sure, there are admirers of these cards, but I am not one of them!
When in doubt, send a cliche tourist card - a view, a building, a church, a park, etc. It always works!!!
There may be single- or multi-viewed images, though single-viewed ones are better. I don't mind cards of nonstandard size.
Happy Postcrossing to you, my Friend! Can't wait to hear from you!
PLEASE, write your names on the card in an easy-to-read way!
