**If your USA postcard has a long white sticker on the front from the Post Office - Please remove it. It comes off VERY easily and when you scan the card we can see all of it.**
Hello! I'm a teacher of English as a Second Language in a public elementary school. My wife, Alena, is from the Czech Republic. I have lived in London and the Czech Republic. I have traveled to many countries and would like to see many more before I am too old. I studied history and geography in university and I find the world to be endlessly fascinating.
We have 2 children: a boy, Adam, almost 7 and a girl Alexandra (Sasha), who is 4 - feel free to send them a card showing a famous character from your country, like Krtek (little mole) from the Czech Republic or Moomins from Finland.
We live in New Jersey, near the beach. I like reading books (not much time now), especially short stories (W Somerset Maughm and Guy De Maupassant) and watching movies (old and new). I like to cook and eat as well. Food is one of the pleasures in life. My wife and used to take yoga classes together at least once a week. Now we carry our kids around instead!
I believe in peace.
As for postcards:
-I love architecture, especially modern & contemporary design of all kinds.
-I prefer single-view postcards of where you live.
-Polar bears are cool too! (My user name is Czech for polar bear.)
-I'm really not sure why so many people say NO to ad cards. I like them, if they are interesting freecards/bumerangs/ad cards etc. Interesting means the design or image or message - NOT BORING! ;)
BUT - any postcard is really ok :) except... (if possible)
-I DO NOT like: night views, silly touristy cards (like wooden shoes from Holland) or kitschy, too sweet cards that show cute kids, puppies, rainbows, cats, flowers, or generic scenes that could be anywhere and nowhere. I've seen THE beach, THE mountain, THE tree, etc. :)
OTHER THAN THAT, I'M EASY TO PLEASE :)
*Please put the date on your card and write a message, more than just "greetings" or "hi" - your English is fine! I'd like to hear about you, not just "happy postcrossing".
*NO ENVELOPES PLEASE
THANK YOU and I'm looking forward to getting your card
