First of all: unfortunately there are some "nine day wonders" in this community. Please, if you are not further interested in Postcrossing use the inactive status. It is too bad about the cards that are lost in nonentity. Sorry for my displeasure!!
Likes: travelling, singing in a choir (www.johanniskantorei-halle.de), playing church-organ, reading books and newspapers, photography (for example unusual perspectives), to write letters and cards ... (ask my friends) and last, but not least the Postcrossing-idea!!!
Like to get cards with architecture, vintage, views from your home-town, country, scenery, streets, peoples, landscapes; also books/libraries/literary, churches/cathedrals; themed with classical music, black/white-cards, black humor, etc. And please with a nice stamp!! A nice card with a nice stamp is a great ensemble. So, please use real stamps (no labels).
Now I'm eager for your card(s). And I'm glad for all the connections via Postcrossing. There are at least 2 pen-pal-friends - not too close, but we keep in touch.
And it is still a big moment to open the letterbox ...
** Please do NOT give my address to Touchnote or other Postcardservices. So you guess, I don't like Touchnote-cards ... pls respect the privacy protection!! **
Please note: I DON'T like military-related cards, glorification of violence, or similar cards.
Please NO advertisement or handmade cards (handicraft works).
Postcrosser aus D/CH/A: Bitte sendet mir eine (typische) Ansichtskarte eurer Stadt. Sehr gerne auch alte DDR-Ansichtskarten (Verlag Bild und Heimat).
If still available (just a suggestion):
- Postcrossers from USA: pls use the "Forever"-stamp with Harvey Milk (1930-1978)
- Postcrossers from Finland: pls make me happy with a Tom-of-Finland-stamp.
-> because we all can say something with it. Thank you!!
Please date your card.
Expired cards: too much :-(
PS: I will not register a card I didn't receive. It's part of the game.
PPS: When you receive a card, please be so kind and say "thanks" at least.
