Incoming Postcards for Postcrossing (August 2015)

Saturday, November 28, 2015
Last Thursday night my sister-in-law finally checked our mailbox. As expected there were some postcards that had arrived for me. Needless to say, I was excited!  (((o(*゚▽゚*)o)))

From Leila in Finland

This one is from Leila in Finland. It was sent on the 30th of July 2015. Leila said that there are about 200 000 lakes and ponds in Finland. 

From Ansie in Germany

This postcard is from Ansie in Germany. It was sent on the 25th of July 2015. She told me a little about her life and her husband. Apparently it was stormy when she wrote this postcard. I hope the weather has improved a bit. ( ´ ▽ ` )b


From Elena in Russia

This is from Elena in Russia. Sent on the 27th of July 2015. She told me about her cat, Fluffy and how her phone needed to be repaired. I hope her phone gets repaired soon. This postcard is my favourite out of the ones I received this time around. I like the colours and the art.

I sent two more postcards today when I was on the way to work. I used to write messages on the postcards but nowadays I try to doodle a little something as well. I feel it adds a personal touch to a message. 

I had gotten one or two postcards that just say "Happy Postcrossing!" on the back with a sent date, the postcard ID and nothing else. Those postcards are so disappointing to say the least. If the writer can't write English well, I wouldn't mind receiving a postcard in a totally different language. As long as there's a little message in the back I wouldn't feel like just another statistic on their page.

Anyway, if you don't know what Postcrossing is, I'm planning to make a brief post explaining Postcrossing and my experiences so far with the community in another post.

If you're too lazy to wait for another post, feel free to visit their website, Postcrossing for more information! Or leave a comment if you have any questions. ( ´ ▽ ` )b
