My name is Mira. I was born in 1953 and I'm living in Tornio, which is located in Sea Lappland, very close to Swedish boarder. I retired from my work as a teacher of service sector in August 2019. I worked as a teacher in a vocational college and before that I've made a long career in restaurant industry.
I spend most of my free time in nature collecting wild herbs, picking mushrooms and berries. I also use those ingredients in cooking. Also in nature I enjoy hiking, sitting by the camp fire, watching wildlife (f.ex. birds) and just enjoying the silence and serenity.
Finland is the country of thousand lakes, so it's not a big surprise that also fishing is one of my hobbies. During the winter we go ice fishing. While staying at home I spend my time reading and watching movies and series. I just love calm and easygoing mornings.
I've always enjoyed sending and receiving postcards, and therefore postcrossing is very dear hobby of mine.
I would be happy to receive postcards:
- maps, city maps, Subway line maps
- national parks, Unesco Heritage
- Marilyn Monroe
- colorful houses
- Postcrossing Meetup
- Keep Calm
- Royal Families, Presidents
- pin up girls
- Irina Zeniuk's Blue Cats
- Inge Löök from Finland
- US state cards
- flags of the world
Every postcard I receive makes me happy!
My kind request is that you would mark the date also to the postcard.
