I live in Aarhus, and I recently finished my PhD in biology, investigating the symbiotic relationships between spiders and bacteria. I'm a bit of a nerd, and I like books, movies, comic books and computer games. especially if it's a little spooky or strange (think Lovecraft, not crime novels). I also love art and illustration, and spend too much time looking through old books in second hand book stores. When I'm not hiding indoors during the long dark Danish winter, I love exploring new places. Abandoned houses and hidden places in nature being at the top of my list.
If you already have a good card in mind for me, please send me that. If you send me something that you find beautiful, I'm sure I'll like it too :D
otherwise... a little list for inspiration:
- Anything homemade!
- Illustrations - scientific, vintage, from children's books...
- Art, old and new.
- The weird and the wonderful
- Nature, Cities, real or imagined
- Alice in wonderland
If you don't know what to write, I would love to hear about your favorite thing, and why you like it. Or maybe just tell me what you did today. What is the latest thing you learned?
A little extra challenge if you're up to it: Doodle something on the card.
By the way, I collect stamps, and although I would never take the stamps off postcards I receive, I would greatly appreciate beautiful and interesting stamps.
Hope to hear from you soon
INFO: Because of the high postage prices in Denmark (4€ per card!), I will be sending most of my cards from Germany or Portugal. I know many of you prefer cards with stamps and postmarks from the country of origin, but I just can't afford that at the moment. This also means that most of my cards will take longer to arrive, since they have to be transported out of the country first.
