About John...

Hello everyone, I am a committed Christian who believes in Jesus as my risen Lord and Saviour. I once was an atheist/agnostic who struggled to believe that God was real. Many years later I am 100% certain of the power and creative power of God. I am not ashamed to say that I attend a nice church, pray and read the Bible on a daily basis.

I come from Bonnie Scotland and live in a place called Aberdeen. I am married to a lovely lady from South Africa.

My hobbies include: collecting foreign currency, where I have well over one hundred countries, reading, travelling and of course receiving lovely postcards. I am looking forward to getting some nice postcards from all over the world. If it is possible please send a postcard of your country or city and I like multi-views. Also, I like a lot of sport so please send football stadiums or any stadium of any sport to me. To my USA friends, if it is possible, could you try and send something on the Chicago Bears: the stadium, Walter Payton, anything on the mighty bears.

From my Russian Postcrossing friends, I have been to Russia and would like to return one day, so please recommend a place to visit. St Petersburg is a lovely city and Moscow a huge city. I really would like a postcard of the Romanov family, can you help please?

The rugby world cup finished in Japan November 2019, If a card is sent from Japan to me, could you please try and send me a rugby world cup theme if possible or maybe something on Sumo wrestling? My favourite sumo wrestler: the late great Chiyonofuji in my opinion the greatest ever. WELL DONE TO SOUTH AFRICA!!! Hard luck to England. Japan were brilliant and you put on the best ever rugby world cup!!!

Can I just educate some of you. The UK is made up of four nations: Scotland, England, Wales and Northern Ireland. I live in the part called Scotland. I am happy to be called Scottish/ British. The royal family is British, not English. As for Scottish independence I am 100% against independence. While I am saddened about Brexit, we must leave Europe with a deal and respect those who voted to leave.

Also, please send a Christmas card whenever you want. Christmas is a festival that I like, not the money side, rather the true meaning, so I would prefer the Nativity, but I like all aspects of Christmas including Santa who is really Saint Nicholas.

My profile picture is the cricket test match between South Africa and Australia that was played in Port Elizabeth on March 2019. The bowler you see is the great Kagiso Rabada.

I used to do swaps and if someone requests a swap I will consider it? If we agree to a swap, we must agree the card. Many thanks.

Can you please scan, as the scanner we have makes the postcard look tiny, many thanks.

Take care my postcrossing friends and God bless you all, for I believe God loves every single human being including atheists. Why hate, when we can love each other.
