I live in this little town called Föhren, which is situated near Trier. Trier is the oldest city in Germany (mentioned first time in an official document in the year 16 BC). It´a celtic foundation but became famous in Roman Times when for a short time the Roman Empire was governed from Trier.
Close by is also a big forest and the valley of the River Mosel (famous for its Riesling wine).
I belong to the older half of the population, means I´m just over 60 now. I still work as a headmaster of a secondary school. I really enjoy travelling and have been to a number of countries in Europe, Africa and Asia. As I´ve always liked the old-fashioned way of writing (real letters and postcards)I joined Postcrossing.
If you want to do me a favour, send me postcards that in your opinion symbolize your country, your region or your home town. And could you please explain why you think so? Thank you very much.
