After a break of about 3 years, we have signed up for postcrossing again, and, with Tornado being a bit older, too, I am hoping to make it an ongoing project.
We were quite exited about our very first destination – a school class of 7year olds in Ohio, USA. All the other cards go to Europe (DK, FIN, NL, D).
I did not go much out of my way and bought my first 5 postcards at the post office. I know!.. Australian Animals..bit of a cliché..but they DO live here and the kids and the lady in Germany who is obsessed with Koala (..uhm “bears”?) will love it! It occurred to me too that, for postcards of the Redlands, I will either have to go to Cleveland or Wynnum, or – even better – I will have to have some of my own photos printed. (See here on my Flickr for shots from the suburp’s burb) BUT : as I know how “Perfectionism kills the project” – I will see that for later. Now I just have to drop off the cards and wait for our first postcards to arrive !
And a special thanks to Amanda from Homeage whose posts about her postcrossing activities reminded me of how much fun it is to randomly connect with strangers around the world with not too many strings attached… (Oh wait, blogging is a bit like that too.. lol)
