About Katri...

**PLEASE, PLEASE... NO Postix, Touchnote, MyPostcard, or ANY other computer or third party generated cards. I DO NOT want my information shared in this manner.***


Hi! 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 96 years old and my best friend. My Dad was Finnish; I'm sorry to say I don't speak any Finnish and have not visited the country.

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 and in parks
indulging my love of chocolate

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 happy to receive them.

I love cute illustrations and random surprise cards! I just like so many different things I've given up on a list.

A personal message (about anything... weather, pets, likes, dislikes) will be very appreciated.

Thank you very much for reading my profile. I feel lucky to have found Postcrossing!
