I am a 72 years young man, happily married, retired teacher of geography. Two (married) sons, 4 grandchildren (3 boys, 1 girl). I am an enthousiastic collector of postage stamps (especially volcanism on stamps!). When on holiday, my wife and I like to make long walks. I love to read good books. And I like embroidering, especially making copies of antique cross-stitch samplers.
I try to choose postcards that fit to your profile or your wish-list - if possible of course. I hope you'll try that for me too.
I always write something on the postcard, about the picture on the card, about myself, or ... whatever. I hope you'll do the same when you send me a postcard - so, please, write more than "greetings" or "happy postcrossing" and your name.
I prefer postcards that give a good image of the place or region where one lives, especially the more or less natural environment - if possible volcanic or other geological features.
Please, no multi-views and no ad-cards!.
And, please, use special postage stamps - if possible!
Expired cards: well, it happens - and I don't like it. So, if you decide to stop Postcrossing, please, be kind enough to register the card I have chosen for you... Thanks
