Hi! When I'm home I live right in the heart of Vancouver with all the hustle and bustle but very close to a salt water inlet. I'm retired, and a widow.
My Mum is English (I was born there) and is now 94 years old and my best friend. My Dad was Finnish from Karelia; I'm sorry to say I don't speak any Finnish.
As well as lots of travel, some of my favourite pastimes are:
drinking too many cups of tea
reading mysteries, preferably ones set in other countries, Nordic and English are favourites
smiling at dogs, they usually wag and 'smile' back
I do smile at people, too ;-)
visiting botanical gardens, galleries, and museums
watching wild birds
taking long walks on our seawall
As a favour, could you save your tourist cards of modern cities and buildings for people who collect them. But if that's all that's available to you, of course I'll be very happy to receive them.
I love cute illustrations and random surprise cards!
Only if you'd like suggestions, in no particular order, the items listed below are a few of the things I enjoy.
* Lunar New Year *
PHQ cards - any subject
seasonal holiday cards
fantasy, mythology, folk tales, fairytales
cards with lots of pink or other warm colours
meteors, planets, space, earth, the moon
A personal message (about anything... weather, pets, likes, dislikes) will be very appreciated.
Thank you very much for reading my profile. I feel so lucky to have found Postcrossing!
