This past year I have been a member of social site www.postcrosssing.com which let’s you communicate with the whole wide world by sending postcards to complete strangers and receiving them back. It is an amazing experience to receive a card from a total stranger because you are nobody to him or her but he or she still took time to pick a postcard, wrote a couple of sentences that are personally directed to you and then walked to a post office to send it. Likewise, it is wonderful thing to send postcards to others, to try to pick their favorite one based on their profile, to find words that would please them and then to wait impatiently for your postcards to arrive somewhere in the world and bring joy to them. The good thing is that you will always know when your postcard reached its destination because of special registration code.
I definitely recommend all of you to join this site. Like I said, it is an amazing experience that helps you to meet people, share interests and learn about our world. It is also refreshing to get a physical letter/card form a real person in this age of modern technologies and fake personalities.
Bellow (in the gallery) you will find all of the postcards that I received from more than 26 countries. Myself, I have sent out 72 postcards over the course of 567 days. The site also has a lot of cool statistics about your postcards: what distance they have traveled, how much time it took to reach its destination and etc. I also bring postcards home from my travels and my friends also always bring them to me as a gift. In total I have about 100 postcards and I am proud of this collection. I hope you will join www.postcrossing.com and maybe someday I will get a postcard from you or you will get one from me:)

The first time I came across your post was in May last year. I’m coming here again to thank you from the bottom of my heart for it. It is because of you that I joined the wonderful community of postcards sharing. Now, after 484 days I’m very happy to see how much my collection grew 🙂
Thank you, thank you, thank you!
I wrote this post 3 years ago and I’m still sending/receiving postcards! I’m so happy to see a fellow member of the community also enjoying this activity! 😀
