About Martha...

Hello fellow postcrossers,
My name is Martha, 73 years young and happily retired.
I like to go to exhibitions, museums, all cultural and/or historic and loved to travel. Due to an unfortunate accident 5 years ago, I can walk only with the aid of a walking cane, travelling abroad is out of the question now, but I have many happy memories of all my travels in the past and now travelling by postcard is also fun.
I have a slight preference (but in no particular order) in cards for:
* orchids
* christmas cards in november/december
* birthdaycards in april
* Damavik cards from Belarus
* Greetings from..... Postallove: already have USA, Poland, China, Taiwan, Belgium, Brighton-England, Chech Republic, Ukraine, Netherlands, Japan, Finland, Germany, Hong Kong, Indonesia, Luxembourg, France, Lithuania, Sweden, Switzerland, Norway, Peru, Denmark, Austria, Canada, Portugal, Russia, Brazil, India, United Kingdom, Hungary, Cyprus
I also love the alternative greetings from cards, I already have a lot of them and like them all.
* everything around tea
*april 2016: start of a collection of foreign alphabets, so if you have them, please send them to me. .
* Egyptian and Celtic history
* international fairytales
* cats, especially blue cats by Irina Zenyuk and Kliban Cats.

Please no religious cards, folded cards and only cards from your own country.
I like reading fantasy and novels, preferably in English, going to the theater and concerts and watching tv (am a fan of crime series) and love watching BBC programmes like Strictly come dancing, Escape to the country and the Antiques Road Trip in all its forms.

I like singing in classical choir concerts on a project base, they are called scratch concerts: you study your part at home and on the day of concert all singers, from all over country and sometimes abroad, come together for the first time, rehearse the whole day and do the concert to close the project. This year - 2019 - the Requiem and the Cantique de Jean Racine by Gabriel Faure are on the list. December 2020 for the 4th time (and i love it) the Misa Criolla by Ariel Ramirez. I am also a big fan of the Irish folkgroup the Dubliners for more than 40 years.

Look forward to all your cards and stories and wish you all happy postcrossing.

Expired postcards??? Yes, ofcourse lots and lots, like anyone else, but I stopped wondering what happened with them, but I still live in hope one day they will come to life and luckily now and then they do.
