We're Rob, a Network Engineer and Myra, an Assistant Director of a pre-college program. We both enjoy the outdoors and traveling. We're originally from neighboring small towns in the Upper Peninsula of Michigan, but moved south after we graduated from college. We live in northeast Wisconsin now, and we've been here for the last 10 years.
We would enjoy getting postcards of:
- nature and landscapes
- historical events/locations/landmarks
- phrases in your language (just let us know what it says!)
- Football (soccer) clubs or national teams. Any thing World Cup related would be awesome!
Rob has followed VfB Stuttgart since seeing them in person in 2003 and after getting harassed by a coworker to pick an English team decided on a Welsh one instead to spite him and has followed Swansea City since 2014.
But of course any card in the mailbox is a welcome one!
Rob speaks German (er war ein Austauschstudent im '03 und '06) and would love to practice reading and writing the language, so please feel free to send us postcards in that language, or in Italian (Myra speaks a little Italian), or Spanish (we think we can remember enough from our school days to read and write back! :)). Or write a few phrases in your native language with a translation. We'd love to learn!
Rob also really enjoys cooking and Myra likes to bake, so if you have a recipe for a meal or some cookies from your home, please tell us! If it's too big for the card feel free to send a message via the site!
It's also fun to listen to music from around the world. Feel free to give us a song we can find on YouTube that you like from home for us to try!
The best part of postcrossing is reading the messages sent and learning a bit about life across the globe so feel free to fill the back of the card! :D
