Hello! My name is Monika, I am 55 years old and I live with my family ( my husband and 2 sons, 23 and 25 ), my cat and 2 parakeets in Altmünster in Upper-Austria.
8 years ago I read about the idea of postcrossing in my daily newspaper, and now I must say, it was one of the best things I`ve ever read! I really love postcrossing! I love it to get a card and I love it just the same way to get a mail "Hurray, your card has arrived...".
These are the favourite postcards I would like to receive: city views ( by day or by night),
tourist attractions, famous places, four seasons,
lighthouses, castles, windmills, winter-scenery, foggy landscape, maps, Scandinavian motives ( for example red houses, northern lights,...), children, kittens, birds ( penguins, puffins, owls,...), reindeer and mooses, squirrels, hedgehogs, kangaroos, koalas, giraffes, Scottish Highland cattle, the pictures of Rolf Lidberg, Raija Nokkala, Minna Immonen and Lisi Martin, gnomes by Lennart Helje and Harald Wiberg, Greetings from -postcards,... and in December it would be very nice to get Christmas-cards.
If you are from United Kingdom, please send me a card with children ( primary school ) in school uniform, if possible!
But please do NOT send me ad-cards or self-made-cards! I prefer cards from your own country! And I do not appreciate old views!
Please stick nice stamps on your card!
Thank you very much and happy postcrossing!
