P is for Postcrossing

Blogging from A-Z

I almost titled this post Puke, but decided that not too many people would want to read it.  I was hit by the Puke bug early Wednesday morning and today have been out of bed for maybe 4 hours.  I am feeling better though 🙂

A few months ago I wrote a post about (here), At the time I’d received 5 postcards from around the world – now I’ve received 24. Here’s the breakdown

  • Postcards by country

  • Country Received Avg travel (Received)
    1 Belarus 2 14 days
    2 China 1 42 days
    3 Czech Republic 1 35 days
    4 Finland 1 15 days
    5 Germany 3 8 days
    6 Israel 1 19 days
    7 Netherlands 2 11 days
    8 New Zealand 1 19 days
    9 Poland 1 79 days

And here are a few of the fun cards I’ve received. I received bookish ones002 Ones for the holidays007and ones that make me smarter008(sent to me by an ER doctor in Israel).

Here are some fairly standard messages009I never know where that next postcard in my mailbox is coming from and that’s a big part of the fun.

I’d write more, but I think it’s time I head back to bed.

  4. I would love postcrossing! I love learning about and talking to people who live in different places. So interesting! I am sorry you feel bad, you probably need to stay down for a little while longer!

  6. Hey I’d read about puke. I think if you have kids, you get puke. Still I’m glad you talked about these postcards. I am way intrigued. It is something I think I’d really like to do!
