    I was born & raised in Northern Ohio and it has a LOT to offer!

    I went with my family for years to Cedar Point. I sure miss it now!

    I’m currently in Southern California – a bit of a change I can tell you.

    Cedar Point has one of the best, old, wooden rollercoasters in the world: The Blue Streak

    You know you’ve been on a rollercoaster when you go on The Blue Streak!

    Ohh, The Rock-n-Roll Hall of Fame is in Cleveland too. I moved away from Northern Ohio the weekend it opened and I never got back to tour it yet. Some day…

    Hey there. Nice site. I was active in postcrossing as well, but joined my ship so am not too frequent on the site.

    Let me know if I can help you with any postcards.

    Hey Pam! Thanks so much for the postcards! I got them over a week ago but got too tied up with stuff… I will feature them soon! Hang in there! 🙂

    I’ll send you a couple of cards too, let me just put my act together here! LOL

    wooden rollercoaster? they still have it here in the US? WOW! I remember riding one back in the Philippines when i was young, it wasn’t fun at all!! I was too scared because the rollercoaster itself felt so unsafe plus you hear ‘horror’ stories of mishaps!!

    Never been to Ohio yet, it’s on my list though! I’ve got friends living there… 🙂

    Hi Velu! Thanks for finding my site! I’d love to get a postcard from the country where your ship docks perhaps..

    I don’t know how long you stay in one port and if you have time to find a postcard and the post office… 🙂

    Any postcard from your home country would be great too! I have not received a postcard from India yet so I would definitely enjoy that card and the stamp! Please find my mailing address at the top links. Thank you in advance! 🙂

    Hi dmeemai!

    I’m looking forward to your next posts (of anything, even mine! 😉 and postcards!

    I’m having a blast with Postcrossing. I have 5 postcards sitting on my desk from folks all over the place.

    Many of my sends & receives are in Finland! Is everyone in Finland a member of Postcrossing?? haha. I don’t know it’s just a high percentage and I wonder about things like that. 🙂

    Keep up the good work here, it’s a real fun site!

    Hey Pam!

    It took me awhile to update. I’ve been busy with my other blogs and one I was involved with that covered the Olympics:

    NOw it’s over, I can finally breathe! LOL

    Hope you got the postcards I sent by now… Cheers! 🙂


Thanks for Visiting!
