I live about 15 minutes outside of Washington, DC in Northern Virginia. Married, two kids 21 and 24, and a dog. I love traveling and I love reading about other places too. I just returned from a 16-day trip to Israel and Palestine, and I was able to use the Postcrossing "travel" status for the first time. I enjoyed sending postcards from Israel.
My hobbies are knitting, hiking, playing an online game called Runescape, making photo journals, and playing board games. I also read a lot, but I don't consider that a hobby, it's just a part of life. :)
I am an on-call chaplain at a local hospital, and I do substitute teaching in elementary school (no middle or high school).
My favorite type of card is whatever you want to send me. I'd love to see any card that you feel represents your country. I love bridges and water, so if you have postcards of lakes or rivers from your country I'd love to see those, and bridges over rivers are lovely also. My home town is Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania which is often called the City of Bridges and Pittsburgh has three rivers so perhaps that's where I got my love for those things.
