Postcard from Germany

Urgh, why do I still write postcrad all the time? Damn you, brain! This postcard arrived about a week ago. The sender didn’t give me any info so sorry I can’t fill you in any more than that!





Postcard from Taiwan

5 03 2010

Since becoming a Postcrosser I’ve developed a real soft spot for Taiwan. It just seems like a really lovely place, full of culture and nice people, and it’s made me really want to go there some day. [Long sigh] Plus, as an islander myself, I have a thing about other islands. I think we have a unique – “mad” some might call it, probably the French¬† –¬† mentality that only other islanders can truly understand. Or maybe it’s the Lord of the Flies Robinson Crusoe romantic element. Whatever girlfriend. Have a look at this postcard – I think it’s my favourite ever! And you know what? Of course you don’t. It came with a matching Siamese cat stamp! Love it!





Postcard to Belarus

Is it wrong to favourite your own postcards? Well, I think I’ll have to with this beauty. I just love it. I admit that this is the glossy, PR version of Salisbury, conveniently ignoring the rats, feral children and general social grime, but on a sunny day it really is a pretty city. Aren’t you just gagging to walk its cobbled streets now?





Postcard to Germany

This lovely postcard went to a German Postcrosser last week who promised that every card she favourited would get a postcard from her in reply. [Dramatic pause] Sad to say, despite its obvious charm, mine did not make it into her precious little in tray of faves. [Wipes away a tear] But, being an adult and moving on, have a butchers at Salisbury!





Postcard to Taiwan

I sent this postcard to a really sweet Taiwanese girl who said her English teacher was always complaining about her grammar! Well, her profile read almost perfectly so I don’t know what he’s talking about. I’ve decided now that I’ll only send postcards to the Far East if the address is given in their language as well so I can print it off. Otherwise there’s just no point – it’ll get lost! In fact, I wish Postcrossing would make it mandatory for Far Eastern users to write their address in Mandarin or whatever. It makes sense!
