Thank you for reading my profile! :-)
I like postcards handwritten, stamped (I collect stamps), cancelled by hand (if possible) and mailed (no envelope). If you want to include goodies like tickets or other items I collect, I'm of course fine with sending card and goodies in an envelope - in that case I would prefer the postcard to stay blank and any messagge on a separate piece of paper. :-)
My favorite motifs:
- Postcrossing Meet-up cards (any kind of motif, as long as info about the meeting is pre-printed on the card - I love to see the different ideas different persons associate with meeting cards)
- Photo tourist cards from the town or city where you live, single view (one photo on the card) if possible. I like to see different places. My favourite motifs are a panorama of your town and old churches, castles or buildings. Don't worry if you live in a small town "without interesting spots" - I like to see how people live in other countries, so a picture of a street in your town will be perfect!
Please do not send advertising postcards - I'm happy to exchange them with you, but I prefer them in mint condition. :-)
My favotites are (mostly) cards I have received, to give you an idea what motifs I like. I do not keep a search list. Any single-view photo card from your town or region that I don't yet have would be wonderful! :-) My collection of postcards can be found here: https://colnect.com/postcards/countries/collection/shugal
Please do not use stickers or tape. The glue will slowly destroy the paper, and I would like to enjoy the cards still in 20 years. :-) Thank you for your understanding!
My hobbies include collecting (stamps, coins, beer coasters, bottle caps, gift cards, bookmarks, postcards, tickets (train, bus and other transportation, museums, parks etc.) and more), science fiction, and history. I work as a project manager for a medical/pharmaceutical research company.
It would be great if you could scan (or take a picture) of the address side of the postcard before you start writing on it - I would like to add the cards I receive into the Colnect postcard catalog (https://colnect.com/postcards), and for that the empty back of the postcard would be very helpful. As Postcrossing rules say you shouldn't contact the person you send postcards to, please wait until the card has arrived before you send me the picture. Thank you very much!
If you don't know what to write on the postcard, you could explain what is on the picture of the postcard, or tell me about your town or area where you live or where you grew up.
I will try my very best to fulfil any wishes for postcard motifs, nice stamps, and way of posting (direct or in envelope) as specified in your profile!
I'm open to be contacted, and open to swaps. I do have a demanding job, so please be patient as it may take me a week or two to respond. If you should not get a response within two weeks, please accept my apologies and send me a reminder e-mail. :-)
