What is Postcrossing?
It's a project that allows anyone to receive postcards (real ones, not electronic) from random places in the world. Learn more.
How does it work?

- Mail the postcard to that address
- Receive a postcard from another postcrosser!
- Register the Postcard ID you have received
- Go to number 1 to receive more postcards!

“It is absolutely exciting to get postcards from all over the world. I love the surprise where the next card comes from and everything that people share with me, what they are doing, what life is like in their country. It is a fantastic way of getting to know the world a little better! I love it!”
