About Barry...

I have lived in Manchester since I was a student here more than twenty years ago, though I'm originally from the west coast of Wales. I teach English Literature and Language to teenagers. As you might expect, I'm a keen reader and enjoy Victorian novels as well as most kinds of detective fiction.

In my spare time I like hiking, wild camping and mountain biking. I am a big fan of geocaching ( and love discovering new places that I never knew existed in my local area, as well as further afield. I enjoy going to the theatre to see live performances and I enjoy watching films, both at home and at the cinema. I am a keen traveller, and have visited Oman, Morocco, USA, China, Peru, Turkey, Malta, Germany and Canada in recent years. I quite like baking, when time allows, especially muffins and cakes.

I have been building a personal stamp collection since I was 12, so please put a commemorative or special stamp on your postcard to me, if possible. I'm always happy to receive any used worldwide postage stamps you might have!

It's my birthday in September, so I'd be delighted to get a surprise birthday card around then!

I am happy to receive any kind of postcard, but my particular interests are:

*wild animals
*stamp designs on postcards
*transport: planes, trains, cars, cycling
*the natural world: scenes of flora and fauna
*hills, mountains, lakes, seas and beaches, especially anything to do with walking
*anything to do with baking, bread-making, cake-making, e.g. Local recipes, images of speciality cakes or breads etc
*Jigsaws or puzzles

Happy Postcrossing experiences!
