My name is Niki (39). I live with my husband and 2 daughters near Utrecht in Suburbia. 20 years ago -when there was no e-mail- I used to have 50 penpals. I received a letter from somewhere on the world almost everyday. Also my wall was covered with postcards from places all over the world. Then I lost contact with almost everyone. I'm very excited to let those days revive! I'm looking forward to hearing from you.
You can tell me about your local tradition, local food or dish. I'll google it! You can also tell me about the book you're reading, the movie you like or your still unforfilled dreams. Or just tell me how you spent your day. I'm not picky on what you write, as long as it contains more than just "Happy Postcrossing".
If you could send me one of these cards it would make my day!
* typical tourist card, I don't mind multiview
* aerial views of your town
* illustrated maps
* food/recipe cards (a Moomin recipe card would make me very happy. For example: http://www.postcrossing.com/postcards/FI-937919)
* very tall buildings
* buildings from famous architects (e.g. Richard Meier, Hundertwasser, Frank Gehry, Gaudi)
* out of the ordinary buildings, odd size, shape or for whatever reason different
* Nouvelles images, Inkognito
* Where's Wally/Waldo? (Pls check my received cards, I have 5!)
* Angry birds
* Krtek / Zdenek Miller
* Leonid Afremov
* Niagra Falls, Grand Canyon, Death Valley, Yellowstone etc
If you still don't know what card to send me then just send me a colourful one! Such as: http://www.postcrossing.com/postcards/PL-368332
Please don't send me black and white cards or animal cards. I don't like them. Make someone else happy with it.
I think a simple thank you when registering my card is not too much too ask. Last week I've had 3 of my cards registered in a row without any comment. I always try my best to pick a card that fits the receivers wishlist. I consider it rude not to say just 2 words: thank you.
Hope to hear from you soon!
