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.
Before I say anything else, be warned - this is a picture-heavy post! All right, three photos, but typically one will do. Courtesy to my December vacation and the fact that a decent amount of cards (at least considering that I just recently jumped on the card-writing-wagon again, with only a maximum of ten postcards travelling at a time) found their way into my mailbox during the past two months, I simply couldn't cram them all in one photo as I neither have enough space (aka small and charmingly cluttered apartment) to do so, nor would anyone be able to appreciate the individual cards if they were all so tiny in the picture.
That being said, let's feast our eyes on the massive Postcrossing haul. As you can see, the designs are wonderfully varied and apparently the note that I like tea-time didn't go unnoticed, so those are probably my secret favorites this time. Now where did they all come from? Belarus, Belgium, Canada, China, Czech Republic, Finland, France, Germany, Japan, Russia, Slovenia, Taiwan, Ukraine, the UK and the USA. No super exotic places as far as Postcrossing stats of all countries suggest, yet I'm hopeful to one day hold a card in my hands with a 3- or 4-digit ID* written on it - that'd be majorly cool!
