50 Postcards and Counting

5 Apr

I may never have traveled around the world and I probably never will, but I have had the world come to me thanks to postcrossing.com. This post is in celebration of the first 50 postcards I’ve received :-)

Belarus

I have learned that in Belarus they love potatoes like Americans and hockey like Canadians.

Canada

I have seen some of the unique architecture Toronto has to offer.

China

Not only have I seen St. Augustine’s Church, but I have seen an adorable illustration and learned that pandas are their national treasure.

Finland

I have seen geese hunting, the picturesque city of Kristinestad in the winter, and the cutest little kitten, too.

France

I’ve seen Nantes and a more generic view of the Eiffel Tower, I also learned that Macaroni and Cheese is served over there- who knew?

Germany

I have been told that “a life without sweets is possible but senseless” and received a postcard  that said “if they want your opinion they will give it to you.” I’ve seen the beautiful city of Aachen, Luftkurot Dahn, and Saxony Wine Street as well as a few other places of no where specific. I have also seen a cute dog, a silly alligator, and a hippo’s head inches from a zebra’s butt.

Great Britain

I have no idea how to describe this one, haha

Hong Kong

I have now seen the view Hong Kong is famous for, and a random Hertz ad as well.

Latvia

I have seen a holiday friendly view of Liepaja.

Lithuania

I have had “Love other people and they will do the same with you”  translated from Lithanian.

Malaysia

I have seen Cameron Highlands, also known as “Malaysia’s Coolest Hill Resort”.

Netherlands

I have received greetings from Holland as well as Christmas wishes, I even saw a winter card complete with a bowl of pea soup. I have seen a few different views of Gorredijk and, though not technically “from” the Netherlands, a view of Barcelona.

Portugal

I have seen a lot of scenic views from Portugal.

Russia

Not only have I seen the church in St. Petersburg, I have seen nesting dolls, found out there’s 8 months of winter in Nadym, and I received a postcard as if from Wonderland, too.

Slovenia

I have discovered that white horses have been bred in Slovenia for over 400 years.

Taiwan

I have seen the C.K.S. Memorial Hall in Taipei and have become acquainted with the Houtang Cat.

Ukraine

I received a birthday friendly card in honor of my birthday last month.

United States

My first postcard was from a girl from Alaska, but since then I have also received postcards from Oregon, Arizona, Florida, New Jersey, Montana,  Colorado, and Georgia.

My first 50 postcards

I have now received my 51st postcard and am pretty excited for the next 49- 100 postcards here I come! If you haven’t checked out postcrossing.com I suggest you do so right about now :-)

Until next time!
Sincerely, Kate ~!~

    Howdy, Tater! When I wake up…and put things away from this trip, I’ll have a big batch of postcards to send your way. Not just the ones I got for you in CA, OR, and WA….but that your Aunt Ruth and I found while going through old boxes of photos and paperwork from your grandmother.

    That was an interesting yet melancholy time for my sister and me. Love, Dad

    “A life without sweets is possible but senseless.” I agree, Germany. I agree.
