my name is Marcel and I like to travel and explore.
I admire Sir David Attenborough for all the places he has visited in his life and I am grateful for all he teached me about our planet. But unfortunately I am not in his position and can not visit all the wonderful places by myself. That is why I need your help.
Send me your local postcard and tell me about the place where you write from. I do not mind historic postcards either.
Please make your postcards colourful with stamps. I highly appreciate more stamps of smaller value over one big value stamp! If you want to send some used stamps along in an envelope, please feel free to do so! I enjoy to collect them but I never peel them off my received postcards or envelopes because it would destroy the whole thing. No way. I keep everything the way I receive it =)
US postcrossers: I would love to receive illustrated maps of your states. I already have got AL, AK, AZ, CA, CT, FL, HI, KY, MA, MI, MN (2x), NH, NJ, NV, NY, NC, OH, OK, OR, TN, TX, UT, VA (a very small one), WA and WI. So a lot more to go and I do not mind receiving multiple Cards of the same state.
My favorites show postcards I already received.
Please bear in mind that you do not have to match any of my likings to make my day happier. I really enjoy the fact that YOU send me some lines from where ever you are and tell me about whatever you want to =)
In case you need some guidance:

What I do not like very much on postcards:
⛔ folded Cards
⛔ religious or political themes
⛔ people / babies
⛔ "cute" animals - squirrels are fine, though :-)
⛔ phrases / Sprüche
I only register the postcards that I pick out of my mailbox. Expired postcards are always a pain but part of the game. The more you send, the more will get lost. We all share that tragedy.
