My friend, Megan, recently posted on her blog about a new hobby of exchanging postcards... and that she has started getting postcards from people around the world.
I thought it was a nice idea so I checked out the site ... www.postcrossing.com ... and decided I would give it a try. You have to send out postcards (up to five at a time) and once the person gets the card and posts your identification number than someone in the system gets your address to send you a postcard.
On Monday, I mailed out five postcards... to the United Kingdom, Germany, the Netherlands, Finland and Norway. I'm sending postcards I collected during my travels... so a few people got New York City postcards while others got one with Elvis on them from my trip to Memphis.
I got emails today saying that two of my five postcards have arrived at their destinations.
I can't wait to see what kind of postcards I get in the weeks ahead... I'll certainly be posting them on my blog.
