I sent this card to Louise in Ballston Lake, NY, USA! The UCI Road World Championships were being held here in Richmond, VA when I sent this card. Part of the bicycling races were held on Monument Avenue, so I chose this card to send! 🙂 I told Louise I had just gone apple picking – one of my favorite times of the year! 🙂
HURRAY! My card reached its destination in 8 days after traveling 428 miles! Louise wrote, “Thanks for the postcard! It’s apple season here, too! Happy Postcrossing!”
I sent this mapcard to Astrid in Bielefeld, Germany. She said she likes postcards with flags, and this is the only current card I have which has a flag on it. Close!
HURRAY! My card reached its destination in 9 days after traveling 4,078 miles! Astrid wrote, “Many thanks for the beautiful card!”
I received this wonderful card from Iceland via Ingrid in Jackson Heights, Queens, New York, USA recently. 🙂 I LOVE the stamp, and the photo is just gorgeous. Thank you so much Ingrid! 🙂 Iceland is on my “Top 5” places I want to see right now, although I do really want to see and explore every country!
Yay, a mapcard! 🙂 I’ve been really slowly collecting mapcards, and was pleased to get this great one from Marcella in New York, USA today.
This card went to Katie in Carthage, New York. I told her I’ve never been to Carthage, but I traveled to Albany when I worked with the circus, and I lived in Brooklyn for several years. I added a banana sticker just because.
HURRAY! My card reached its destination in 5 days after traveling 738 km! Katie was really interested to hear that I worked for a circus. 🙂 It certainly was an interesting experience!
Mikayla is 10 years old and lives in New York. She sent me this cute mapcard from Canada! Funny – the stamp wasn’t canceled and it took 12 days to get from NY to VA. Odd. She wrote that she “totally loves middle school.” 🙂 I wish Postcrossing had been around when I was in middle school – what a cool way to learn about other cultures, writing and geography!
Kate is a 20 year old student in Minsk, Belarus! She sent me these really cute cards and stamps. She also sent me a 100 ruble note! It was so surprising to find in the envelope! So neat. About 80 of them equals $1.
I was completely thrilled to received Kate’s thoughtful cards and ruble note (!) so I’m sending her these things below. 🙂 Her profile says she likes stickers, Disney and Winnie-the-Pooh… She also says she collects foreign objects such as bus tickets, movie tickets, etc. so I’m sending her a metrocard from NYC!
My German friend Karo was in New York for a wedding and sent me this great card! She knows how much I love posters and this is a great one! 🙂 It’s from the Spanish Civil War created by the artist Goñi in 1937. The translation for the text is: “Your brothers at the front, they wait for you in the sacred fight for freedom.”
