I’m Elizabeth! I discovered postcrossing a few years ago when I was leaving home for the very first time. While I travel a lot for my job, I don’t get to travel the world as much as I would like. Postcrossing has allowed me to learn about places that I otherwise would never have heard about. I love that not only do I get to learn about places all across the world, but I get to learn about the people as well.
A little about me. I’m 26 years old, use she/her pronouns, and work as an interpretive park guide for the National Park Service. I have loved history ever since I was a kid and my Mom let me watch “Titanic” for the first time. Nowadays I tend to focus on the American Civil War and pre-20th century United States history, but I have a growing interest in medieval British history as well as 18th century maritime history. I also really love musical theater, with my current favorites being Falsettos, Jesus Christ Superstar, and Assassins. That said, I can’t sing or act to save my life and I lament that fact every day. But my amazing and cuddly cat, Hector, makes everything better!
I will love any postcard you choose to send me, so don’t worry about finding the “perfect” postcard or anything. Feel free to pick any that you would like to send! But if you prefer to have a suggestion list of postcards, I’d be super interested in any of the following:
-A historical site/event/person
As I mentioned above, one of the best parts of postcrossing is not only getting to learn about the world, but also getting to learn about the people. I would love to hear from you on the postcard itself. Please, feel free to write whatever comes to your mind! But, if you can’t think of anything, here are some suggestions of things I’d be interesting in learning about you:
-What is your favorite quote?
-What is your favorite fun fact to share?
-What is your favorite thing to do in your free time?
-What song/book/movie/tv show do you recommend?
-If you could automatically master one talent/skill, what would it be?
These are just suggestions, of course, and I will love and appreciate whatever postcard and thoughts you choose to send. Thank you for taking the time to send a postcard my way today, and I hope your own mailbox is overflowing with postcards from all over the world!
Wishing you all the best,
*If it’s not to much trouble, please date the postcard with the month’s abbreviation (example: Oct. 9, 2017). I have a hard time reading just numbers. Thank you!
