Hello, or as we say in the American South, Hey!
Birmingham, Alabama, U.S.A. is my home. Travel and exploration are treasured experiences for me, and I am fortunate to have seen many beautiful and interesting places. However, this exchange will help satisfy my curiosity about other destinations, which I may not get a chance to visit. It's a beautiful world out there; and as humans, we have more in common than we have in differences.
Please do not send: advertising, self-made, comic/cartoon-style, or postcards of cats/dogs/domestic animals. However, animals representing your country, such as Panda Bear from China, or Kangaroo from Australia would be welcomed!
My favorite postcards include:
* Colorful reflections in water (city lights/boats/lanterns,etc.)
* Famous Landmarks or UNESCO Heritage Sites
* Landscapes/Cityscapes - Colorful DAY or NIGHT views
* Art Deco, Fireworks, Hot Air Balloons, Volcanoes, Water Falls
* Castles/Temples/Mosques - Especially if reflected in water
* Architectural Designs or Elements, Black & White postcards
And for my Postcrossing friends in the following countries / regions, please consider these suggestions:
Countries of the Far North: Northern Lights / Aurora Borealis
Asia / Other - NIGHT view of colorful LANTERNS
Australia - Sydney Opera House, Great Barrier Reef, Uluru
Brazil - Amazon River
