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 and it would feel wrong.
US postcrossers: I would love to receive illustrated maps of your states. I already have got AL, AK, AZ, CA, CT, FL, KY, MI, MN, NH, NY, NC, OH, OK, OR, TN, TX, UT, VA (a very small one), WA and WI. So a lot more to go and a second or third one of each state does not hurt either ;-)
Maxi postcards are the greatest things in my eyes. The motive or theme does not matter. I appreciate them as a postage gem.
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 still need some guidance let me grab your hand and show you:

Don`t mourn about expired postcards - it´s a part of this hobby and happens to all of us. And the more you send, the more will get lost. I will only register a postcard that I received and do not ask or recommend otherwise.
