I’ve just received my very first postcard about 2 days ago. A lovely friend of mine sent this from Tokyo, Japan. It takes about 2 weeks to reach Indonesia. That’s pretty fast, don’t you think? I mean, I sent the same thing 2 days earlier before she sent this one. But there’s no sign of my postcard arriving in Japan. So… I guess mine got lost along its way so it won’t even reach Japan before my friend go back to Indonesia. I think I better send another one.
I know sending postcards sounds a lil bit old-fashioned. It’s like being a granny. I mean, many travelers have stopped sending postcards as it’s pretty hard to find a stamp, a post office, or a mailbox. Or even finding the postcard itself. Facebook, Twitter, Emails, free phone calls or other messenger have replaced this traditional postal method.
But it seems nowadays, postcards have become a thing as when people are away on holiday, they will choose to send this ‘Wish You Were Here’ or ‘I had such a great time here!’ messages. I mean, what’s more heart–touching than that? So I guess I’ll start sending postcards as I travel.
How about you? Have you sent or received a postcard lately? 🙂
Nice postcard 🙂
Writing, being it a letter ort a postcard, is way more personal and touching than any electronic media. MM ✒
Can’t agree more 😉
Well, I am so inspired to make a post about it as well.
I recently had one at home.
Nice postcard, anyway 🙂
Go make one! Can’t wait to read your post, Winda!
Thanks. It’s lovely, isn’t it? 😀
I love receiving written notes in the mail. One of my good friends from high school is about to go on vacation, and I look forward to seeing the postcard she promised to send. 🙂
Well that’s exciting! Where’s she going anyway? I wish you’ll receive that postcard. Must be lovely 😀
She’s going to New Orleans in a couple weeks; it’ll be just before I go back to Houston for a visit. 🙂
