I don't have any strong dislikes or allergies. If you took the time to pick something nice I will definitely like it :)
That said, I don't really like cartoons and baby/children themed items (i.e. Disney and the like...), so please try to avoid them. Except when it comes to socks or panties in wich case I don't mind them (that much) .... and Moomins!, I like them, they're so cute!
Please don't send me anything that contains wood, seeds, spices or honey, as they will be held in customs. The SAG (Agricultural and Livestock Service) is very strict.
I promise to take the time to pick something very nice for you and always send every swap I join. However please remember that I live at the faaar end of the world and things may take longer than expected to get to you, they might get lost or stolen. It usually takes like a month. In any case please send me a message and I will make it RIGHT!! ... I'm not here to flake on anyone =)
Also mail usually takes anywhere from 4 to 6 weeks to get here. So be patient please, if I haven't rate you, it's because I haven't received it yet.
I love touristy postcards of any kind!! (single view if possible) landscapes, nature, cityviews, landmark places, arquitecture, traditions, markets, festivals, people, food, beautiful or unique places that are not so touristy...anything!! You can send it written and stamped or blank in an envelope. I'm cool with both.
I love Maxicards too!!
I also like vintage postcards, used or unused!! ..... and seasonal popular in your country (i.e. Halloween, Christmas, New Year, Easter...) wich I can't get here.
But if you want to send me any other kind of postcard, you're welcome! just send it blank in an envelope please, thanks!
