Outgoing Postcards for Postcrossing (April 2017)

It's been almost 2 months since I sent out my last postcards (or made any posts whatsoever on this blog). It takes a while for all of them to arrive at their destinations and I didn't want to send out one postcard at a time since I wanted to make another big outgoing mail post. You can check out my last post here and my other Postcrossing posts here.

So far, 2 of the 9 postcards I sent out have not reached their destinations yet. (┛◉Д◉)┛彡┻━┻

They might be lost, I have no idea. I believe I have 90 days for the postcards to get to where they have to go before they're considered "Lost".

I've been away from this blog for a while and I have various reasons, I swear but 99.8% of the reason is due to my laziness. So, to kickstart my blogging, I thought I'd do another outgoing mail post. However, the postcards I'm sending out this time around are a little different.

In the past, I did a little experiment to see whether I could stick a stamp on a 3R picture and send it through the mail. You can read all about that in this post but long story short, it worked! The only thing is, Singapore is literally right beside Malaysia. Will a picture postcard make it all the way to the UK? To Africa? To the US?

I'd like to find out, so this time I'll be sending 6 printed pictures turned postcards to 6 different locations, including Malaysia.

I apologise if these are not the type of postcards you were expecting. But #science. 


Here are the postcards that will be heading out:

To Antje S. from Germany
To Adriana G. from the USA
Nikolai M. from Russia
Agung R. from Indonesia
Sammi L. from China
YC T. from Malaysia
I hope the postcards reach their destinations safely!
If you happen to see your postcard here, please do drop a comment down below! 
I'd love to hear from you!

Likewise, if you're interested and want to try it out for yourself, I'd be happy to try and answer any questions that you have! 

Happy Postcrossing!
