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:

This card went to Candace in New Jersey, USA – twice. I noticed after a few weeks that it didn’t arrive, so I sent it again on May 8. Thankfully it arrived this time! I used vintage (dog) stamps the first time – I wonder if that was the problem? I’ve used these particular ones several times, so I don’t know. I used the apple one the 2nd time around.

HURRAY! My card reached its destination in 33 days after traveling 448 km! Candace wrote, “Love the Bo card! Thank you.”

I sent this card to Maksym in Ukraine. It expired, and I noticed he hadn’t logged into Postcrossing for several weeks. So I emailed him and asked if he could register my card – the next day he deleted his account. I don’t really understand why people sign up for Postcrossing and don’t bother to register their cards. Like, if you try it and decide you don’t want to continue, that’s fine, but why not register the cards you get? I was really frustrated. But after a while, Postcrossing sent me an email saying since the Maksym deleted his account, they would automatically register my card. 🙂 Yay, Postcrossing!
