Hi, I'm saanattaja from Finland. I think sending a postcard is one of the greatest ways of cheering up someone's day. It's always a lot of fun to search for a postcard with a picture that suits the receiver in some way.
I'm quite a language freak, so it would be great to hear your favourite word or phrase (with a translation, please).
It'd be also interesting to know about something special in your language, for example something grammatical not found in many languages.
If you're not interested in languages, I'd also be glad to hear about some custom or tradition in your country.
You can also tell about some mythical creature or an old legend from your country.
Feel free to write your postcard text in English, German, Spanish, Japanese, Swedish or Finnish.
If you're wondering what kind of card to send, here're some ideas (but I love all kinds of postcards so please don't take these too seriously :)):
♥ wolf / オオカミ / Волк / 狼 / loup ♥
- kingfisher / Eisvogel / カワセミ / зиморо́док
- platypus / Schnabeltier / カモノハシ / Утконос
- fox (red, fennec, arctic etc.) / Fuchs / キツネ / лисица
- The Legend of Zelda / ゼルダの伝説
- Pokémon / ポケモン / Покемон
- Nintendo / 任天堂
- rodent (mouse, gerbil, shrew etc.) / Nagetier (Maus o.Ä.) / 齧歯動物 （ネズミなど）
- quote in German / Zitat auf Deutsch
- text in Japanese / Text auf Japanisch / 日本語のテキスト
- Velociraptor / ヴェロキラプトル / Велоцираптор
- Parasaurolophus / パラサウロロフ / Паразауролофы
- axolotl / ウーパールーパー / Аксолотль
Again, if you don't happen to have cards with those specific themes, it's no problem at all. All postcards are very welcome. :)
If it's not too troublesome or expensive for you, I would appreciate it if you could send your postcard in an envelope. A friend of mine collects stamps, so I like to surprise her once in a while with new ones from all around our globe. :)
