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! 🙂

210-GERMANY-oct13.2015-card2 210-GERMANY-oct13.2015-stamp

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”

I sent this card to Cindy in New Taipei City, Taiwan, China. Cindy asked on her profile what people’s dreams were… I said I’d love to work from home, and to have a movie theater living room. 😉
HURRAY! My card reached its destination in 18 days after traveling 7,939 miles! Anna wrote: “Greetings from Taiwan! In fact, the idea of having a movie theater living room came from a Taiwanese movie called ‘Coffee, Waiting,Love’, which was a huge hit last year. One of the supporting characters does own a living room like that! Like you, I love all kind of movies except horror, and I’m now looking forward to Divergent 3 being released.(which still has a lot of time to go) Wish you all the best:)” I can’t wait to see Divergent 3 as well! 😉 The book was great!

I sent this card to Anna in Saxtorp, Sweden. Anna wrote on her profile that she likes “beautiful horses”, water and nature. So I sent this card that I found in Chincoteague, Virginia last year. I saw wild horses running beside the highway – it was amazing! I was only there for half a day, so I’d love to go back again for a while longer.

HURRAY! My card reached its destination in 6 days after traveling 4,140 miles! Anna wrote: “Hello Thanks for your nice card. Always fun to get postcards. Wis´hing you one pleasant autumn, Best Best regards Anna”

199-USA-may30.2015207-MALAYSIA-oct2.2015-stamp

I sent this card to Delacrix in Selangor Darul Ehsan, Malaysia. The only thing on his profile page, was his name and this quote: “To know me is to fly with me..” The night before I had watched “Up in the Air” even though I had seen it before – I love that movie! And George Clooney. 😉 So I immediately recognized that quote! I wrote to him that I loved that movie, and I loved traveling. And that my favorite airport was Milwaukee International because that’s near where most of my family lives. 🙂

HURRAY! My card reached its destination in 16 days after traveling 9,628 miles! Delacrix wrote: “WOW, I’m quite surprised that you’re the first one to notice the quote. I’ve used that as my personal slogan for quite some time now, due to my outgoing personality. But, I’m quite disappointed with Jason Reitman’s latest film, Men, Women and Children. It seems fitting that you send me a postcard of an airport, I get the reference to Up In The Air. […] xD”
