Hello from Christchurch in the South Island of New Zealand.
To many post crossers a long way from your place!
Please can you put my card in a envelope as so many cards are torn.And a letter travels faster.But do realize it costs more.
I also am a keen stamp collector,so nice stamps are welcomed,
I prefer my cards blank-not written on.and not multi views if possible. Just write the ID on the envelope or write a friendly note.Sometimes I enjoy the writing paper as much as the card.
Please do not send home made cards,unless made with photos you have taken and in the themes I collect.
My favorite themes are the following
If you don't have these themes,a happy card to make me smile would be good,I pin them on my board in my office!
I look forward to your card from a far away place to mine!
I am 70,collected cards since I can remember-have some from Portugal that are 50 years old.And three from WW1-written on a troop ship to war.I wonder if the writer returned home.
Love to travel,worked in Europe and England from 72-76.
Also visited parts of Canada,USA,visited South Africa for 6 weeks in 2001(saw elephants in the wild--what joys as all animals I saw were living free)Vietnam,Cambodia,Singapore in 2013 and 2015
Sri Lanka(tea and elephants!)I spent my 65th birthday in Thailand at a elephant rescue area.!
2017 in February visited Southern India.and in Feb/March 2018 have visited Rajasthan in India.
In April 2019 I had three weeks in Borneo- Malaysia,saw Pigmy elephants,Urangutans,sadly in rescue centers,but other monkeys,sun bears,birds in the wild.
Also love to read and always have a book to read.Sometimes the book is so good I spend all the day reading it!
I worked in a hospital for 38 years and retired after all those years working shift work full time. I do not miss work !
My lovely cat sadly died this year aged 18. She had a good life with me and I have great memories.
