Postcrossing is a great way to get in touch with people and to learn/see more about/of the world through postcards. I'd like to share my received postcards and therefore made this blog. I receive many postcards every day and I will try to upload them all!

Hello all!

I'm very tired so i'm keeping it simple today.


RU-197954: Sent from Egypt


Swap (from France): Worth some words though, as this was a nice surprise. I'm now collecting cards of all 95 french departments, and Agnès swapped this card with me to help me with my collection. It's department 01 and seems like a beautiful region! Now I have 2 different departments cards, 93 to go!

And last but not least. 3 beautiful norwegian cards sent by Cathrine. I've swapped with her a few times before and I love getting cards from here and I think it's the other way round too as I make her collection of calendar postcards bigger.

Greetings from a very rainy netherlands! Streets are like rivers, but that didn't stop the mailmen from bringing the post around. So I also got some cards today.

JP-122761: This card is sent from Japan, written by Ai. She lives in Nagoya where this beautiful castle is situated. A very beautiful card with also typical Japanese blossoms seen on it. I loved the airport stamp she used.

BR-115957: Rio de Janeiro, a place full of heartwarming people I have heared. Well, this card was full of nice words written by Roberto from the big city so I guess what they say is right. This is his very first postcard sent and registered on postcrossing. I always like it to receive someone's first postcard sent.

US-801266: Today another magnificent owl card! This time from the US sent by Jean-Claude living in the high mountains of North Carolina where you apparently have lots of birds of prey. This barred owl is one of them. What a fantastic photograph and I really adore this cute looking owl.

FI-881491: And a rather different card from Finland. It is a card promoting a test where people need to answer questions about their habits and that would eventually result in details about their time of death and advice of getting a healthier lifestyle according to the sender Liris.

Hi everybody!

Today 3 postcards in my mailbox.

BE-70380: Sent by Rene that apparently likes my country very much. That's always nice to here. The card is a vintage card that shows the beach of Blankenberghe. A coastal town along the north-sea

EE-78247: Such an awesome Estonian owl postcard also reached my mailbox and I really love this cute looking owl. Still young and posing for the camera, almost with a face like: Leave me alone :( haha. A big thanks goes to Mari Elle and Jaana (the senders). Jaana wrote the card and Mari put the stamps on it. She did a great job , right? :)

TW-182462: A beautiful sunset postcard sent from Taiwan. She told me my name in Chinese looks like Harry Potter in their language. That gave me a good laugh, haha!
The fathers friend of her dad has made this photograph and I think it's really good.

Bolded = Got a card from there

Hello everybody,

as you probably have noticed: I'm not updating my blog since more than a week ago. Several reasons. I did not pass my exams which was a real bummer. In the end something went wrong and I got very bad marks while throughout the whole year everything went OK. So, you can imagine that I got very dissapointed about that, and still am. The stress isn't even gone (I have this for a long time already) as I have to make another exam. Hopefully this will result in one less bad mark when I do well. It's geography which Is a subject I am interested in. For some reason I did not well on the first exam but will try to change this with the second exam on tuesday. That's why I have to learn every single piece of information again and that takes much of my time.

Another reason for not updating my blog: I have received too many cards so I lost track on that. I get around 15 cards a day which begins to take a lot of my time that I really need to study and want to keep as relax time. Therefore I have given up this blog now, but don't worry, this will be over soon and then I will post lots of postcards again. I will be more choisy though when uploading postcards. Scanning, uploading and talking about 15 postcards a day is crazy! So soon I will only be posting my favorites and special cards.

That's about it I guess...

Take care everybody!


Spanje 9

The best card I received today! A beautiful nightview of the building 'Casa Batlló' designed by Antoni Gaudi in Barcelona, Spain. A big card and an awesome nightview. Can't get any better, I guess.

Thank you very much!!

Heel erg bedankt voor het de foute maar leuke papegaaien kaart Sonja! Thank you Sonja!

What an interesting card. Not something I receive every day, haha. The back is full of stamps. I counted 9!! She ran out of stamps so she had to use stamps with small amount of money. It looks great!

Thank you Mary Jones!!
