It arrived to its recipient today, 11th July, the 100th postcard I have sent this year that has actually reached its destination.
The postcard was a panorama sized multiview of various Australian native parrots. The receiver was a young teenager who claimed that she loved birds, so I selected that card for her because it was so cute.
So that’s it, goal accomplished! 100 postcards both sent and received this year.
Along with the card mentioned above, another card was received today in Lithuania. It was a big day for postcards because I also received two in my mail box, one from a postcrosser in North Carolina, and another from a 43 Thinger in South Carolina! Such a coincidence!
I’ve sent lots of postcards this year, but so far only 95 have arrived at their destination. I hate it when mail vanishes into thin air during transit.
My guesstimate is that number 1oo will arrive on Friday 6th July. Anyone else want to guess? If you get it right, I’ll cheer-bomb you!
Here it is, the 100th postcard I have received in 2012, all the way from China!
This postcard is not only beautiful, it is also handmade my the lady who sent it to me using one of her own photographs. She says that it shows how beautiful the leaves are in Beijing when the Autumn arrives.
Here’s a cute postcard from Taiwan showing several popular Taiwanese dishes. these include Braised pork & rice, Oyster omelette, Oyster thin noodles, Dumpling soup, Tianbula, Fried chicken and a rather interestingly named “Stinky Tofu”
I would love to visit Hong Kong one day. All my friends and family who have been highly recommend it… especially for shopping! It looks like such an amazing city.
One of my pet hates… a postcard with nothing written on it except my address. Such a pity.
My first postcard from Indianapolis. The city has 1.7 million people and is the home to the Indy 500 Auto Race.
Today is one of those days when I wish I could read Russian. Instead I get to try and piece together what this might be… I’m guessing that on 21st May 2003 there was a Russian tea party and it was so awesome that someone decided to make a postcard about it.
Not just a typical Dutch windmill, this one has a pancake restaurant inside! How cute is that!!
My new favourite card all the way from Austria and one of our very own 43 Things friends! What an amazing climb up to the top – although admittedly I doubt I would make it past the first landing! Graz is a city filled with impressive museums, architecture and stunning sights.
Thank you my 43 Things friend!
