Hi postcrossing-friend !
I am Jonas, 28 years old and I live in the Austrian capital, Vienna.
I study Finnish Studies (language and literature) at the University of Vienna- it is a great place to live and to study!
Beside my study, I am a editor/journalist for three German stamp magazines, a work which I like very much.
Furthermore I am the youngest member of Austrian and German Philatelic Association, and proud part of Finnish Postcrossing Friends / Suomen postcrossingyhdistys since 2018.
Originally I come from southernmost area of Germany, the Allgäu-
a region which is famous for cheese, mountains and Neuschwanstein Castle.
My birthplace Kempten, is really the oldest town of Germany, because Romans and Celts lived here for a period of time.
Here you can see Kempten:
I am a curious person, who likes interesting facts about your country, city or landscape.
I have one problem: I am very crazy about stamps for many years. Collect them since my early childhood. Stamps and postcards are so wonderful: I can learn something about your country in a very comfortable way and than it is in my brain! Really!
Crazy, unusual or commemorative stamps are awesome for postage :)
P.S. Are you another stamp collector ?
I make direct swaps with other collectors.
→ For your interest: I never cut out the stamps on the card because I keep them complete! You can make me happy sending some stamps (used or mint) from your country which are not necessary for you!
I like everything what you find which is typical for your country or city :)
Always favourite of mine are 'Greetings from....'', "Happy Postcrossing from...", "Maps of the world", "Flags of the world" etc.
My other favorites:
✗ History and Politics
✗ Finland (kirjoita suomeksi, kun on suomalainen. :D)
✗ Television and Radio (typical broadcasts, TV-towers etc.)
✗ Sesame Street (Grover and Elmo) and Eurovision Song Contest
✗ Modern Art (esp. Hundertwasser, Kandinsky, Mondrian, Picasso etc.)
✗ Olympic Games (Summer or Winter), Stadiums
✗ Electronic Music (Techno, Trance)
And don't forget: Postcrossing is for fun! :)
My list is not a must-have!
I always look forward to opening my letterbox and finding your card!
Thank you! Merci! Kiitos! Danke!
Happy Postcrossing from Vienna!
Yours, Jonas ☺
