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.
Please don't share my address with anyone (eg Touchnote, urlaubsgruss) but apart from that, 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.
