About robkockel...

Hi there!

Thanks a lot for all your cards! I am Dutch, but I live in Colombia, where I am studying a master in Conservation and Use of Biodiversity. Colombia is amazing, being one of the world's biodiversity hotspots, with an enormous variety of wildlife and landscapes. The country offers everything from tropical beaches to snowcapped mountains and virtually everything in between. I love exploring the forests, mountains and high plateaus around Bogotá, the nation's capital.
I'd love to hear more about you and any cultural or artistic pursuits or hobbies you may have. I enjoy receiving cards that show something of the place you are from. I am especially interested in cards that show the natural beauty of your country, region or town, or places of cultural interest. You can also make me happy with cartoons or designs that belong to your country, region or town. Nice stamps are more than welcome too! Surprise me, all cards are welcome!

Best wishes from Robert in Colombia!

NOTE: My profile is currently set to inactive, because receiving mail is rather complicated here in Colombia. In general, incoming non-priority mail, like postcards, simply NEVER gets delivered. You can send me direct swap requests, but you must be willing to send your postcards by registered mail, which is currently the only way I can receive them. Outgoing postcards usually do reach their destinations abroad, but may take from 1 up to 9 months to arrive, so you'd also need patience waiting for your card to arrive.

My apologies to those Postcrossers who are waiting for me to register their cards. I never registered them because they never arrived (and probably never will). If you send me a message including your postcard ID, I will register it for you. And if the card itself ever were to arrive I will send you a message to let you know it did.

5th July 2019: I have (hopefully temporarily) disabled my direct swap option. I am receiving more requests than I can handle under current conditions in which some new barriers to sending mail were recently erected by the Colombian Mail. Once I have figured out how to work around these new obstacles I will hopefully be able to switch the direct swap option back on.
