Minna in Leppävirta, Finland had several cards on her favorites list that I have! I decided to send the first two I saw. Plus I’m sending an ad card – “Night of the Auk” – she said she likes movie posters and sci-fi, so I’m hoping she likes it.
UPDATE Dec. 21, 2012: Hurray! My card reached its destination in 16 days after traveling 7,110 km! Minna said: “Thank you for the wonderful set of cards I received from you today. The envelope already promised a lot – gorgeous stamps from my field of interests and an Angry Birds sticker. The cards were so great. I was very happy to learn what this Liberty of Statue picture is about!” She also wrote that some members of her family started a circus (!!!) called Sorin Sirkus. It sounds so familiar, but I’m not sure why – I’m guessing when I worked for a circus, someone had talked about it or worked for them. Small world!
Ans in the Netherlands likes cards about the Navy, ports, ships, etc. So I sent her this card from the largest Naval base in the world! It’s in Norfolk, VA just 2 hours from me. 🙂
UPDATE Dec. 20, 2012: Hurray! My card reached its destination in 15 days after traveling 6,325 km! Ans said: “Aye, Thank you very much for your wonderfine naval card, and much appreciated matching and real postage. Lovely handpicked nautical impressive sending, beautiful! I like it a lot. I wish you Warm last december days, and a Cool 2013.” 🙂
Lynn in Taiwan likes Disney cards, so I’m sending this one. 🙂
