Sharing a love of postcards

I have been writing blogposts but not in my usual category. I’ve created a new one called Postcards and it is linked in the menu of my site.  So it won’t be going out through my normal email feed.

For almost a year now I’ve been a member of Postcrossing.net and enjoying receiving postcards from all over the world, as well as sending them. I’m teaching others about our country and I’m learning lots about other countries.  If you’re interested in seeing the cards I’ve received, and some that I’ve sent, why not check out that menu item Postcards to see. Make sure you pop back now and then. I have a year’s worth (almost) of cards to pop up on the site and it’s going to take me awhile to get them up there, then I’ll have to keep it updated.

In the meantime, here is one I’ve sent overseas to a small number of people. A very iconic image from our area, don’t you think?

Scotland

Another first – this time from Scotland.  I really like this one.  It was a whole month after I’d received the one from China. A long wait.

My cards

Here are a couple of cards I sent. One was taken in New Zealand a couple of years ago when I went on the Hobbiton tour. The person I sent it too had said on their profile how much they loved Lord of the Rings so I thought it would be good to send them a card with a photo taken on the set. The other is a card I bought – I don’t buy many but just now and then.

China

First card from China. Surprising that it took this long as there are so many members in China.
