Personal mail is always a delight, especially letters and cards with interesting or colorful stamps, and a personal note. All types of cards are most welcome, but my favorites are single view cards with pictures of your country - UNESCO World Heritage sites, scenery, buildings, local people, city views, etc. Among non-view cards, I LOVE Inge Look's old ladies, Norwegian trolls, Diddl, maps, and cards reflecting local culture. It would be great to receive any card that makes YOU smile, with an explanation if not obvious. Don't worry about avoiding duplicate cards. The personal notes on the back make each card unique.
I like reading, travel, family activities, live theatre, walking, and bookcrossing. (See my profile, http://bookcrossing.com/mybookshelf/hootnoodle. There's even a small picture there from our 2007 trip). My husband and I have been married 44 years and have two adult children. We both retired in the summer of 2015, and are looking forward to more trips, both near and far.
I register postcards the day they arrive. If you have sent me a card and don't get a response in a timely manner, please let me know.
I hope that projects like this with person-to-person connections help people see each other as individuals. Our governments do not always represent us well. I certainly disagree with almost everything in the current US administration, which seems intent on trashing most of the values that I hold dear.
