“Ever since my friend introduced me to postcrossing I have been smiling to myself all the time at the thought of it all, that you send and receive from 100s of countries around the world. Receiving a postcard the traditional way is so much more satisfying and exciting! I am going to do this for my whole life! No doubt!”
