  • My New Hobbies: Postcrossing

    Hello! Have you ever send a postcard to your friends who living in another city or country?
    I like to send a postcard since I met some foreign friends. I have been send a postcard to some country. Malaysia, South Korea, Egypt, Saudi Arabia and Ghana.
    I have bad experience while sending the postcard. My friends who living in Egypt and Saudi Arabia didn't receive the postcard. It was so sad. I think that's because of their address is not complete. I learn from last experience, so I try to re-send a new postcard. I hope it will arrive safely. After a weeks, I got a postcard from Irene, my Korean friend. She's send me 2 postcard and 1 hanbok craft. I was sooo happy. Because it's my first time! Since I felt so happy, I decide to send moreeee postcard to people around the world. The feel is different than talking on messenger or whatsapp.

    So, how about you? Tell me the story bellow!

    I carry a list of people to whom I send postcards whenever I go on holiday. They include two kids from Colombia whom I want to see a little more of the world, and friends from this website. Most collect postcards. A couple of them were postcrossers, but they stopped. One time, there was a young girl on this site who posted that she collected postcards. I offered to send her a postcard. I have been doing it for a number of years now. I think she must have received around 50 postcards from me over time.

    ​I try to send postcards from wherever I am staying. On some trips, I stay in four or five towns. Last November, I send almost 50 postcards in a week. One of the recipients was sitting next to me when I was writing her postcards. She even put a couple of those postcards in the post.

    ​One time, I overheard another friend talking with someone. As she told the other person who I was, she remarked I sent her postcards from places she had not heard of before. It is quite pleasing to know that people appreciate a postcard.

    ​I hope you will receive many postcards and will enjoy sending postcards to friends. The postal services in some countries are not very reliable. However, I found that some postcards may take a month, whilst others will take between four and six months to reach the addressee, even when they live just ten kilometres apart. So, maybe your friends in Egypt and Saudi Arabia will receive their cards in time.

        I like also a lot of sending a lot of postcards and snail mail (even most of them has stopped for some reason). But I like also to use Postcrossing a lot. I like it a lot and it is really easy. Even I would like to have new people to write to and get something back

          I fond of Postcrossing too. I have sent and recieved a postcards from other countries. I haven't many postcards at this time, it's about 10. I exchange postcards with people who has the same hobby as me, even one boy sent me a tea bags from Taiwan. It's really fun. It's more interesting to me to exchange postcards with people who i know than with stranger from Postcrossing site but i like that such site was created as i don't always can find such friends who share my interests.

              OP, your story sounds amazing! It seems that you really have many friends for postcrossing!
              It's one of my hobbies too but as it was mentioned in one of the previous replies, I prefer to send postcards to my friends or at least to some people who I know and can have a nice chat in social networks for example. I mean that the idea of postcrossing is amazing but it's really much more interesting and pleasant to exchange with such postcards with people who mean something to you, not to complete strangers.
              My story started when I made a couple of friends in net and we started to make the exchange with postcards, and even small parcels with gifts too. I like to make such postcards with my own hands, for example I adore quilling and for this type of handmade it's one of the basic works. There are many more such techniques for making them and of course many ready special postcards/templates for postcrossing VIRUS [/URL] .
              I have now 5 such friends and maybe there will be more.
