Hello ~ !!! I just reached 1611 postcards sent AND 1611 received ~ !!! October 10, 2022, which is a very significant day to me. Yay ~ another milestone has been reached ~ !!!
My name is Linda and I'm a professional photographer and artist. I love to travel the world and have been fortunate to have visited over 75 countries and have made many friends around the world! I live in Southern California in a beach resort when I am not traveling the world.
My interests include travel, photography, gourmet cooking, listening to live music, gardening, reading travel stories, going to the beach, hiking, skiing, surfing, painting and much more!
I love all animals especially cats, which I have two (now one), which I rescued. I love nature and the beauty of the world. (RIP Coco 12/04/2021 ~ 20 years of love)
I enjoy tropical locations such as the jungles of Bali and Mexico and I love exotic countries like India and Cambodia as well as the excitement of big cities, like Paris, Singapore, Tokyo and New York.

(As an artist and photographer, I am open to handmade postcards, as long as they can hold up in the postal process! I welcome the creativity of other artists around the world!!
