I said I'd update when I had more news on the Postcrossing. (It's a small World after all) It has been about 2 months today since I joined. I have received 4 post cards so far! Germany, Russia, Lithuania and Finland.
The excitement I feel when I get a new card is incredible! It's wonderful that such a small, seemingly insignificant and old fashioned thing can bring such joy to me.
So far I have sent to Russia, Germany, Netherlands, China, Taiwan, USA, Ukraine,Belarus, Turkey with second ones to China, Netherlands and now a third to USA today.
What do I write on each card?
Different people request different things so I generally give brief facts about South Africa or myself if that's what's requested.
I buy a few postcards when ever I come across them and save them until it fits a post card description that someone requests.
I am still loving the surprise element when I click "send postcard" you never know where your next card is going to be sent. Join and you'll see what I mean :)
