Although we may chat, email and read each other’s posts on Facebook I really love receiving postcards from you. I collected and sent postcards as a kid, pre-internet. Guess that was an early form of social media. Yet these gorgeous images tease the traveler in me.
I sent Bibi a postcard from South Africa and she reciprocated with two.
“As I write this, you are enjoying South Africa and I will soon be off to India again.
Looking forward to seeing/meeting you this summer!”
Bibi’s posts as an expat in Serbia have prompted me to put her country on my bucket list. We unfortunately didn’t get to meet this summer yet I have high hopes of our greeting each other in real time in the future.
And another postcard from India. How I love these bright colors.
“Greetings from Dharamshala, India, located in the foothills of the Himalayas and
home to the Dalai Lama. Sending you the Green Tara, but can’t recall what it
symbolizes. Something good!”
I think I sent a postcard to Debi from Grand Canyon last year, and if I didn’t I owe her one. She sent this postcard from North Carolina.
“The scene on the front was likely at the State Park south of Ft. Fisher. Nothing but
Sand dunes, ocean and wildlife. A slice of Heaven! I’m so happy to know you! Have
a great summer at the Grand Canyon!”
I’m really happy to know you too and hope we meet someday on a glorious beach, or anywhere at all. BTW, would love to see more posts on your blog.
Melissa is a postcrosser http://www.postcrossing.com/ sending and receiving postcards around the world. I sent her a postcard from South Africa and she sent this one from New Hampshire. This looks like my kind of place.
“This is a place have spent many hours at! I sit on these rocks and enjoy the beauty
surrounding me! On the warm days I may jump in or just dip my toes in! I found
this spot back in 1981 and continue to visit whenever I can. I love the rocks, water
and all the trees in their seasonal colors! I hope this finds you happy and well!”
I can tell Melissa likes color as not only is her special place brilliant, the postcard is written in red, green, orange, blue and purple. How fun!
While Diane was on holiday she sent this postcard from France.
“Weather very up and down, mostly down. Carcassonne is stunning. Off to
Barcelona tomorrow then we go cruising on the Med.”
Although Western Europe hasn’t been high on my list Diane’s blog posts with outstanding images boosts it a little higher. I would love to visit some castles.
On top of the tantalizing images from around the world the foreign stamps are quite fun and different than what I’m used to seeing.
I’m loving this postcard receiving, and sending. So I’m going to send a postcard from Grand Canyon to the first 6 commenters. Let’s keep this rolling. If you’d like to send me a postcard just let me know and I’ll send you my current snail mail address.
So what will it take to get a postcard from you?
