About Ann...

I live on my own in a small seaside town that's much closer to France than it is to London. My sons both now live in France and have their own families.

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, almost any book.

Apart from reading, I enjoy walking, gardening (now reduced to a balcony), good food, photography. Now that I have more time, I'm trying to go back to more creative things, currently crochet. Sometimes I finish a project!

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. If you want something more definite to go by, here are some suggestions:

*UNESCO World Heritage Sites
*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.
*People in science/technology, especially women
*Clocks, watches, sundials. Anything measuring time.
*Bars, pubs, or other drinking places (café, tavern, saloon, etc.).
*Postcrossing meet-up cards signed by anyone/everyone there.
*Rural scenes - woodland/pastures/farms and farming.
*Domestic scenes - bedrooms, living rooms, kitchens.
*Art/illustration in general (but nothing too abstract)
*Citroen 2CV (deux chevaux)(I drove one of these for years!).
*Sleeping people

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.

~~During the coronavirus pandemic, people in care homes here have no visitors and feel more isolated and vulnerable than many. Through a Facebook page https://www.facebook.com/groups/264201771413719/ , I send a postcard each week to a different care home.
