“Because you’re so special,

I hope your day holds in store.

Many happy hours that overflow,

With all, you`re wishing for.

Make up a year that brings,

Everything that you deserve,

Full of happy happenings.

Time to lift another beer.

Time to wish you all the best,

And to hope you will be blessed,

With a year that’s all you hope for,

With the opening of many a new door.

Happy birthday and All The Best For The Coming Year.”

Hiya, I’m Maud. I’m an English girl who's moved to Berlin - because who wouldn’t fall in love with a country which has words like ‘Kummerspeck’ hidden around every corner... I love traveling and finding out the quirks of each country - and what better way to remember them than on a postcard?
