I'm Julia, 24, from Kaliningrad, Russia (my city doesn't have any borders with the rest of the country).
★★★ I collect cups and mugs from local shops and abroad. I am out of place right now so I decided to collect postcards with cups/mugs.
★★★ I love reading. I prefer fantasy and mystical stories with ghosts. Sometimes I read detective stories but I never guess who the murderer is =)
I also translate fanfics about Harry Potter ;) Some friends are surprised by that. They say "how can you do that? nobody pays for your translations!". I translate stories that I like most. And the main reason is that I want other people (who don't know English) to experience the same emotions and feelings as I did while reading.
I love watching movies and going to the cinema. "Lord of the Rings" is my favourite.
I am watching "The Walking Dead" at the moment and Daryl Dixon is my love =)) I am a fan of "Hannibal" now. I mean that new series =)
I also can't imagine my life without music. But who can? =)
★★★ I'd be great if you write something in your language (like "Hello", "Bye", "Thank you"). And translate it, please ;)
You can also put a ticket (bus, tram, cinema, etc.) on your postcard.
I love every card I get, so don't worry if you don't have anything from the list of my favourite motives. Just send a card that you would be thrilled to receive yourself =)
postcard motives that I'd like to receive:
■ cups, mugs
■ mountain views, nature

■ Pre-Raphaelites (William Hunt, John Millais, Dante Rossetti, Ford Madox Brown, Edward Burne-Jones, Arthur Hughes, Frederick Sandys, Edmund Leighton, etc.)
■ women in art
■ cartoon characters;
■ books, writers, or people reading

■ Easter, Halloween and Christmas Postcards on the seasonal. You can also send me Birthday card (my birthday is December 31)

If you are from a country with not many postcrossing users, please send me a card that says the name of your country on the front.
I really love art or drawing.
★★★ If you don't know what to write on your postcard, I have a few ideas for you ;)
* You can write about book, film, song that you like most.
* Your favourite quote or quote that suits your mood.
* You may draw ;) Even if you're not good at it =)
* Or you can write what world secret you would like to know (like who built pyramids, who killed Kennedy, etc.). But only one! ;)
* Your favourite recipe
♥♥♥ Postcard with warm message would be appreciated
