This post is called “187.5”, because I’m not sure how else to describe this card. This is a first for me on Postcrossing! I received this card yesterday, and although the ID number is clear on the card, Postcrossing wouldn’t let me register it. So I figured the person had written down the wrong ID number, and I contacted Postcrossing. I’ve had to do this a few times, and they usually reply very quickly with the correct ID.
They wrote me back and said, “Sorry that ID no longer exists on Postcrossing because it is over 365 days old. It cannot be registered.” The card is from England. I’m so curious what happened! Did it get dropped in a post office – in England or the US? Or did the person sending it forget to send it, and discovered it a year later?
Very strange! I wish I could thank the person who sent it to me. Maybe they will see this post someday. 🙂

Tanya lives in Surrey, England and was born in Moldova and lived in Russia. That’s so interesting! 🙂 She sent me this fantastic card of Kate & William! I love the stamp, too. I’ve never seen it.
Favorite cheese: Taleggio
Antje is from Gothenburg, Sweden and she sent me this super cool mapcard. I really loved seeing which Swedish animal names were similar to English names like lox / lax, beaver / baver and otter / utter. 🙂

Shadia is from France, but lives in London, England. She said she uses Postcrossing as a way to teach her two young children about geography! I’ve noticed other parents do this on Postcrossing too, and I think that’s such a great idea!
Favorite cheese: Jarlsberg
Ingrid from Norway sent me this card she picked up on a recent trip to Israel. I really like the stamp on the left – the grayish part is actually silver.
Favorite cheese: Emmentaler
Leila from Finland sent me this vintage card from St. Petersburg, Russia. It’s of the Peter and Paul Fortress, which I actually went to many years ago! I really like that she reused the envelope that she sent her card in! Yay, upcycling! 🙂
This is such a cute card! Ollie from Lincoln, England sent this to me. Love it!
I would love to go to the place on this card! So pretty! Athabasca Glacier is part of the Columbia Icefield, located in the Canadian Rockies. Margaret sent me this lovely card she recently acquired on vacation, and she lives in England.
I love handmade cards! Jan-Erik sent me this card he made of Zossen, Germany.
Yiqi lives in England, but was in China over the winter school break. She sent me this cute card while she was abroad! Unfortunately the Richmond Post Office ripped it up, but I still love it. 🙂 I love the stamp too!!! It was funny to get her card today, because I mailed one to her today.
