Postcrossings - I found this website via a reader and promptly signed up- that was over a year ago and since then I have happily exchanged postcards with lovely writers all over the world. Just this morning I sent out cards to Luxembourg, Russia, Austria and Finland. I received one from Germany today. growing up I always had a Postcard collection getting family and friends to send or bring them to me when they traveled. Postcrossings randomly selects someone for you to send a card to and then when it is received your name is released to someone to send a card to you.
I still try to send postcards to friends and family when we travel- just a small little piece of life that can brighten a day for someone.
People in other countries are most interested in our postage stamps. It is fun to make up combinations of them to reach the international postage rate. This endeavor has made for interesting dinner conversation about people and places around the world. We have recieved cards from countries that we needed to do a little research on as far as location.
I encourage any one who enjoys writing and travel, learning about new places and meeting nice people to give Postcrossings a try.
