I recently joined Postcrossing, which I believe brings people around the world together, albeit in a small way, but still it gives one a satisfactory feeling to receive mail from across around the world.
A name is randomly selected for you to send and with each postcard sent, a random user will send a postcard to your mailbox. The featured book postcard is going to the Czech Republic.
The hardest problem is finding postcards, and though people have picked up a few for me on vacation and I went to the Texas Treasures at the mall to pick up a few, they are quite hard to find locally. I found the one in the picture on a site called Listia, but the cards there can go outrageously high.
I recently bought a Star Wars themed box of 100 postcards on Amazon, but they are quite large. I’m a little scared to send them, since I’m not sure how much more it will cost. I’m not too upset though, since I love all things Star Wars.
This is the box the postcards came in, and it’s open on this side so it can act as a picture frame.
I plan to show all the future postcards I send and receive.
Sbohem teď! Which means Goodbye for now!
