I recently swapped with Carla from Linden, New Jersey, USA! She had 3 cards available to swap, which are some of my favorites: a mapcard, a state flag card and a photo of a battleship. The battleship is the USS New Jersey which is now a retired ship and currently open as a museum in Camden, NJ. I would love to go explore it someday!

I sent Carla the postcards below:

Pieter from Upper Moutere, New Zealand contacted me over Facebook to swap, and I gladly said yes! He was interested in some USA mapcards I have, and he offered postcards or stamps – I chose stamps, and WOW! He sent me sooooo many New Zealand stamps. I was so excited to get them since I don’t have many New Zealand stamps. He has literally quadrupled my collection! (Increased it by 4 times!) Thank you so much Pieter! ๐Ÿ™‚

I spy what I think is a VW bus! ๐Ÿ™‚ This lovely card is from Gibb’s Farm in Karatu, Tanzania. Just out of curiosity, I looked up the prices, and while I probably won’t be able to stay there any time some, I’m adding this to my bucket list! ๐Ÿ™‚

Cows! I love this postcard of Highland cows from Scotland. It must be the Wisconsinite in me, because I’ve always thought cows are pretty cute. ๐Ÿ™‚

buenosaires

Buenos Aires, Argentina! Such a pretty city! I would love to go here someday.

I really love hotel postcards. I grew up just around the time that hotels and motels stopped giving them away for free, or even selling them. I definitely remember going on vacation with my parents andย having some free cards waiting in the room, and I was so excited to write one to someone!

This card is from Fort Young Hotel in Roseau, Dominica. I looked up the hotel, and it sure has changed a lot! ๐Ÿ™‚

And finally a card from Salzburg, Austria! ๐Ÿ™‚
