Going to ones mailbox should be a joyful time, but if you only recieve bills or nothing at all it can lead to depression. So I am asking friends, family and strangers to brighten my day and drop a postcard in the mail to make my mailbox a happy place.
I joined Postcrossing which should bring about many postcard exchanges - I copied my introduction below to introduce my self.
Hello I am a seasonal chef at a children's camp. My wife and I cook for 25 to 190 people three meals per day almost everyday between April and October. We love to travel and might use your postcard as inspiration of where we ought to go to next..
We live between a major city and a popular tourist destination - Vancouver and Whistler BC Canada.
When not working I like to hike in the outdoors - geocaching or doing some cycling and I am always looking / watching the skies for birds.
I would love receiving any postcard that you find interesting about your city, town or village.
Also of interest are postcards of Mytholgy - legends, folklore. I love Trolls and everything about Trains,.
Cards that show UNESCO world heritage sites would be great..
If possible I hope the postcard shows where they are from on the front - but that is not so important.
The only postcards I would NOT like are those that have snakes - I don't like snakes.
Thank you -- if you indicate on your postcard that you would like me to send a card back to you - please do so and remember to include a return address on your postcard I will send one back to you.
