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 :-)
I have learned that in Belarus they love potatoes like Americans and hockey like Canadians.
I have seen some of the unique architecture Toronto has to offer.
Not only have I seen St. Augustine’s Church, but I have seen an adorable illustration and learned that pandas are their national treasure.
I have seen geese hunting, the picturesque city of Kristinestad in the winter, and the cutest little kitten, too.
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?
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.
I have now seen the view Hong Kong is famous for, and a random Hertz ad as well.
I have seen a holiday friendly view of Liepaja.
I have had “Love other people and they will do the same with you” translated from Lithanian.
I have seen Cameron Highlands, also known as “Malaysia’s Coolest Hill Resort”.
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.
I have seen a lot of scenic views from Portugal.
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.
I have discovered that white horses have been bred in Slovenia for over 400 years.
I have seen the C.K.S. Memorial Hall in Taipei and have become acquainted with the Houtang Cat.
I received a birthday friendly card in honor of my birthday last month.
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.
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 ~!~
