We are Sheila and Walt. We joined Postcrossings because we love to travel.We enjoy meeting people and seeing the beauty of each country.. We don't think it is mentally healthy to stay home in the USA all the time when there are new places, perspectives, and ideas to be discovered elsewhere. We have been to England, Wales, Scotland. Ireland, France, Switzerland, Belgium, Denmark, Norway, Sweden, Germany, Italy, Austria, The Netherlands, Canada & Mexico. In Nov. 2016, we went to Tokyo! We enjoyed our beloved London in December 2017. Which country will we visit next?
While this is not a place for politics, we must say this: we are embarrassed and enraged by the words and actions of our "president". Sorry.
We were married in September of 1989. No kids, but we do have 3 cats (Jameson, Guinness, and Chronos),and 4 dogs (Simon Pugg, Watson, Scooter & Nummie). Our animals are shelter rescues. We also have 3 frogs, a tarantula, and 3 species of cockroaches (they stay in the classroom...we are teachers).
At home, we enjoy cooking international recipes, reading, old bookstores, & science. We have brought home lots of travel souvenirs and feel like our little house is a mini museum of our travels. We are science teachers. Walt specializing in astronomy & genetics, and he runs a robotics club for his 12 & 13 year old students. I, Sheila, teach science in an elementary innovation academy. In the evenings, we watch DVDs of Doctor Who, Star Trek, Rick & Morty, or other fun things and relax in our little studio, making all kinds of paintings, greeting cards, scrapbooks, quilts and other crafts just for fun.
We would love to hear from you on any kind of postcard. We enjoy:
* roads/paths that go off into the distance
* science, science fiction, robots
* astrophysics, NASA, Newton, Tyson, Einstein

PLEASE NO ANIMAL CRUELTY POSTCARDS.
(Favorites list shows cards we've received, not cards we still want)
Send a card that makes you happy & tell us why you like it. Please share what is happening in your life and your community. If you want to add your favorite quote, book, or yummy recipe, it would bring us extra joy. As teachers we would also enjoy cards that we can use in classroom displays, showing national dress, food, local animals, famous landmarks, royalty, etc.
If everyone belonged to Postcrossing, the world would be a happier place.
Have a peaceful day!
