A few weeks ago a student introduced me to www.postcrossing.com after I told her about my love for postcards. (I shamelessly try to bribe students to send me postcards from abroad.) Postcrossing is a postcard swap, unlike regular pen pals. There is no reciprocation between members (unless desired). It allows you to mail your postcards all over the world and receive postcards from all over the world. In the past two weeks, I’ve sent postcards to the Netherlands, Russia, Taiwan, Japan, Germany, and Canada. But yesterday, I received my first one from New Zealand. If you are a stamp collector, love to give/get mail, or just interested in an international exchange, this is a great way to do it. Check out a few of my postcards that I’ve sent and my first arrival!
This is the one I just got!
