I live in a small seaside town that's much closer to France than it is to London. My sons are grown and have their own families now.
I love learning about other countries, traditions, history, everyday life. I love learning about people. I can't imagine being without a book to read, any book, though my favourites are always set in France such as these (additional titles always welcome)
I enjoy walking, gardening, good food, photography. Now that I have more time, I'm trying to go back to more creative things, currently crocheted blankets.
As long as it's a real postcard (not folded) I will be delighted with ANY card you care to send me, but I would really love to learn more about your country. If you want to make me extra happy here are some suggestions:
*Something unique about your country.
*Markets, market stalls, or people selling anything.
*Herbs and spices
***Alphabets, abc cards, single initial letters, names.
*People in processions, parades, marches, and traditional festivals.
*Libraries / books / people reading, or writing.
***Clocks and watches
***Bars, pubs, or other drinking places (café, tavern, saloon, etc.).
*Hanseatic cities (prefer single views).
*Rural scenes - woodland/pastures/farms and farming.
***Domestic scenes - bedrooms, living rooms, kitchens.
*Traditional occupations or crafts.
*Art/illustration in general (but nothing too abstract)
*Citroen 2CV (deux chevaux)(I drove one of these for years!).
I'm sure there are many other possibilities I don't yet know about, so any postcard you send will make my day. If you still need ideas, have a look through my favourites.
I prefer cards to be stamped and written with a few words about the card or yourself or where you live or even some local news. I'm always interested if you can recommend a novel set in your own country.
I don't collect stamps but I do enjoy seeing interesting ones if you happen to have them.
~~Please think about ticking the repeated countries box, and helping to keep Postcrossing countries in balance. Yes, you will find most of your postcards will go to just a few countries but people are interesting, no matter where they live.
