About Maureen...

I look forward to "meeting" you and to receiving your postcard. Hope you are all staying safe and well.

With the pandemic, I miss traveling as I love to explore new places and trying new foods. I have visited all 50 US states but didn't start to travel internationally until later in life. I am excited to have visited over 30 countries. Places I return to over and over again include Spain, Portugal, Austria and the Czech Republic (Czechia).

A bit about me. I am a social worker and enjoy helping people. Family is very important to me. I treasure my twin niece and nephew who have just graduated from university & my two sisters and one brother, who is also a Postcrosser (miker6067).

My birthday is May 1, Labor Day in many countries, and it would be great to receive cards with this theme. Also those with my birth month flower, Lily of the Valley.

I will be thrilled to receive any card you send but here are some I will especially love:

--evidence of the resistance of people against authority
--anything hockey-related...I love our Washington Capitals team
--dramatic bridges (like those by Calatrava) and architecture (like that of Gaudi)
--street art
--Metro stations and maps (or other public transportation systems and vehicles)
--doors or windows
--hands and/or feet
--more remote towns and cities that I may never get to visit
--decorative wall tiles
--David Bowie, Freddy Mercury, 80's pop especially British
--anything related to British/Canadian shows (Sherlock, Orphan Black, Broadchurch, Unforgotten, Luther etc)

Do you have a misfit card? One that after you bought it you thought, "Why did I buy this? Who will I ever send it to?" Please send it to me! I would love to hear the story of how it came to you and why you do not like it.

If you don't know what to write, I would love to hear what is going on where you live or what you enjoy doing there. I would also love to hear what music you are currently listening to and why I should check it out!

P.S. My "favorites" are a mix of cards I've received and especially like and others I've seen on Postcrossing. They show the types of cards I like, not necessarily the exact cards I hope to receive.
