The goal of Postcrossing is to connect the world via real mail, by allowing you to exchange postcards with other random members around the world.
Once upon a time aka four years ago I first signed up on Postcrossing and after taking
Last but not least, some general stats can be found here.And so it begins. I kicked off the fun with 9 postcards (see explanation above) and seeing how mail service for once didn't leave something to be desired aka several cards already made it to their destination, I have in the meantime been able to request some more addresses. So where are the cards from my first post-break batch traveling to? Belarus, Belgium, Czech Republic, China, Finland, France, Germany, Lithuania, Netherlands, Portugal, Romania, Russia, Sweden, Ukraine, and USA. All in all I've sent out a total of 19 cards so far while at the same time receiving 13 cards myself. Where from? Czech Republic, France, Germany, Netherlands, Russia, and United Kingdom. And just look at this fabulous mix of postcards! *sigh*
Were you familiar with Postcrossing? Maybe you are a member yourself or you're now playing with the idea of signing up? Let me know!
