I started postcrossing, because I used to have lots of penfriends and wrote plenty of letters in my youth. Nowadays, I no longer have any penfriends and I'm not sure if I have time for longer correspondences regularly, so sending postcards every now and then seems to fit the bill perfectly. I also like stamps (don't collect them, just like them), which goes well together with postcrossing.
I love all sorts of animals, especially dogs, cats, hedgehogs, bunnies, and cows. I have two dogs myself.
In my free time I like to play video games (mostly rpgs and jrpgs), knit, cross stitch (HAED patterns), play volleyball and badminton, cross-country ski in the winter and rollerskate in the summer, read fantasy literature, English classics & Moomin books, play pen-and-paper role playing games, listen to music from classical to Finnish rock & metal to Korean & Japanese pop music, go geocaching, watch films and tv-series on dvd (science fiction, fantasy and detective films & series) and walk with my dogs.
I like to travel, especially in Europe, so scenery and nature cards are welcome. I love languages, so you can send me cards with aphorisms and wise words, as well as those Keep calm and ... variations. I enjoy tea, hot chocolate and exotic foods. I have a deep interest in all sorts of stories and words, so recommend me books to read or write something in your native language if you like. I also like comics (works of Neil Gaiman, Don Rosa, Bill Watterson, as well as Nemi, Snoopy), the Marvel superheroes, manga & anime (Black Butler, No. 6 & Fairy Tail especially), the UK, and many other things besides.
I'm also a fan of illustrated card, pretty much anything cute and dragons works for me. :)
