  4. Register the Postcard ID you have received
  5. Go to number 1 to receive more postcards!

User testimonials

“The world is flat, at least that what Friedman said in his book and in fact with Postcrossing it becoming flatter and smaller world. Sending and receiving unexpected postcards from random person is one of the greatest things in my life. We don't know each other, but I read so many great stories of life and about their places. So great.”
