I live in a very small town in the USA. My town is directly on the water and I can always smell the salt air and can usually hear the surf. It's like having nature's own "white noise" machine - all I have to do is open the window. It is a very beautiful area, with plenty of opportunities for outdoor activities like boating, swimming, fishing, hiking, exploring, etc.
My avatar is Bigfoot (or Sasquatch) or rather a full-sized wood carving of what the local artist believes a Bigfoot looks like. The area is the USA I am from, called the Pacific Northwest, is known for its many Bigfoot sightings. Some say Bigfoot does not exist. I say he does because I like to believe there is some wonder left in this world of ours.
I have lived in both big cities and small towns, but I find that I feel most comfortable in smaller towns.
My hobbies are sending and receiving postcards, of course, seeing new places, exploring in the woods, and foraging for wild mushrooms.
I was born and raised in this part of the USA, but did have the opportunity to spend a couple months in Barcelona when I was a student and a year in Panama when I was a soldier in the United States Army.
While stationed in Panama I had the opportunity to travel around the Caribbean Sea and to a few different countries in Central America.
I really enjoy learning about new places and would hope in the future I can travel more. Sometimes I just pick a destination for a day trip, with my only real limits being time and money. I find that local, small heritage museums and Chambers of Commerce, as well as just talking to the locals, are a good way to learn about a new place.
My kids are all adults now and doing well. I am very proud of them.
Thank you in advance for your postcard. I look forward to hearing from you :-) I don't care what kind of postcard you send, but I am a fan of signatures because every signature is unique. Feel free to sign your name in your own language.
