Hi postcrossing-friend !
I am Jonas, 26 years old and I live in the Austrian capital, Vienna. I study Political Sciences and Finnish Studies at the University of Vienna.
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 have one problem: I am very crazy about stamps for many years. I collect them since my early childhood. Postcrossing is a very good opportunity to get nice stamps from all countries of our world!
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!
Please try to use beautiful commemorative (philatelic) stamps for postage.
→ 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!
-> If you want, I can send you some German stamps back or a
thank-you-card. Let me know ☺
Always one favourite of mine is ''Greetings from....'' (Postallove).
I have: Czechia, Indonesia, USA, Russia, Nederland, Austria, Aland Islands, Finland, Australia, Kazachstan, Great Britain, Japan and Germany)
Or the "Happy Postcrossing from..." (papersisters)
I have: Finland, NL, USA, Germany
My other favorites:
✗ 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)
(esp. Paul van Dyk, Jean Michel Jarre, Guru Josh)
2017 I have visited my first postcrossing-meeting ever at Tampere/Finland. It was so great and the Finnish people so superb hosts, I have decided 2018 (after Jyväskylä-meeting) to participate the Finnish Postcrossing Friends / Suomen postcrossingyhdistys.
My next big meeting is Aland Islands (June 2019) :-)
Also I am learning Finnish at the moment. Dear Finnish friends: Can you improve my Finnish with some (easy) sentences?! Kiitos paljon ☺
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 ☺

P.S. Are you another stamp collector ?!
I make direct swaps with other collectors.
