Amanda Arkebauer

Hi, my name is Amanda, and I live in Seattle, WA. I am a flight attendant with USAirways and I enjoy traveling all over the world. I read every chance I get. It would cost a fortune to keep me in books, so I use the Seattle Public Library. I also get my books from my favorite used books stores, Half Price Books, in the Seattle Area.

In my spare time, I like to letterbox. Letterboxing is an intriguing hobby. It combines hiking, treasure hunting and art. The idea is to seek out hidden letterboxes by following clues, then recording the discovery in my personal journal. Each Letterbox is represented by a unique hand-carved rubber stamp which I stamp into my journal. I also have a personal rubber stamp that represents me and I stamp this into the logbook in the letterbox to prove that I found the box. Letterboxes are located all over the world and the clues are available on the internet. My favorite letterboxing website is Atlas Quest.
