Welcome to Ralf and Ilana’s private Homepage. Why is it called Lanara? The name is a combination of our christian names: iLANA RAlf. I invented the name way back in 1993 and had used it on personal printed matter such as Christmas and Easter cards for family and friends. The name has a Fantasy ring to it and suited us both very well. Ilana loves reading Fantasy books and I am more a fan of Science Fiction. Imagine my surprise when, in the year 2000 or 2001, I attempted to register a Web Domain under that name. The .com and .de were already occupied. I couldn't believe it. Lanara was a figment of my imagination and here it was all over the Internet! So I settled for the .net and yes, you thought correctly - it has taken me about 15 years to get a Website online. I was hampered by the fact that my partner refused to be involved with the project, which means that this Website will be filled with my content for the moment, until Ilana changes her mind.


My main priority for now is to get the postcard catalogue up and running. There won't be much else to see until later this year (2017). Use the links below to check on progress. This site is still under construction and is constantly being updated. However, if something is not working as expected, please let me know via Email: admin@lanara.net. Thank you.
