I sent this card to Michele of Lake Stevens, Washington, USA. The card is from the beautiful Lewis Ginter Botanical Garden here in Richmond, Virginia. She had written on her profile that she likes nature and reading, so I told her that I love Stephen King & Agatha Christie, and am currently reading, “The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up”.

HURRAY! My card reached its destination in 5 days after traveling 2,338 miles! Michele wrote: “…thank you for the beautiful card. I love it! If I ever get to VA I will definitely go to Lewis Ginter. It seems like we are sharing reading lists! Steven King has been my favorite author since I was a kid. I am currently reading Agatha Christie’s Miss Marple collection and just finished reading all the Poirot mysteries by her. I really enjoy most of them. And I read the Magic of Tidying Up about 6 months ago, changed my life! It’s like we’re reading twins! […]” Michele has great taste in books! 🙂

Hans from Witzenhausen, Germany had a very short message on his Postcrossing profile: that he wanted a better world without war or hunger that was free and independent. I wrote to him and said I also believed in this and that’s why I love Postcrossing: the ability to learn about, and from other cultures, and to make the world a smaller place, where it’s easier to connect with all types of people!

HURRAY! My card reached its destination in 12 days after traveling 4,149 miles! Hans wrote: “Hello Maria yes i like your card some day i will make an exposition in our smalltown of 15000 more than 100 nations are present and some day freepeople live in a free world Hans”
