Please write the address exactly as I have, and be sure to leave BLANK space for the U.S. Postal Service below the address and along the entire bottom margin of the card; this speeds up the delivery of postcards to the USA.
Truly, I will enjoy receiving almost any kind (one main exception; see below) of postcard, and I also look forward to cool stamps! Here are some of my little collections:
1) multiview postcards with the placename on the front. I have such a nice, growing collection of these, and I treasure them all, but especially ones from the little towns and smaller cities.
2) Those odd, even weird, postcards that you might have hanging around, thinking you could never send them to anyone. I will love them!
3) I also love ad cards and commercial postcards
4) mid-20th century postcards showing bizarre hotels, tourist attractions, etc.
5) Bears, and other large mammals
* PLEASE DO NOT SEND those sexist tourist joke cards, usually from beaches, showing bikini-clad women who could be from anywhere.
One of my lifelong hobbies is language. So if you can't think of things to write, please give me a phrase or two in your native language, and script!
And now, a bit of my own history: I have been to Spain in 1986, England & Scotland in 1989. In the early 1990s, I travelled completely around the United States and Canada, every state except North Dakota, Michigan, Indiana, and Alaska, picking up postcards along the way. Since joining Postcrossing, I have received several spectacular cards, really unique exchanges.
After I got on the Internet, I became a big Eurovision Song Contest fan. I love all types of music, but especially folk & roots music from around the world. Music recommendations are always welcome!
