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?
- Request an address and a Postcard ID
- Mail a 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 a wonderful surprise to find 5 or 6 postcards from all over the world in your mailbox. It never fails to make me smile and make my day a little better. I think that it's a fun way to get a snapshot of how different people live and what's important to them. It's also a wonderful reminder that there is a lot of beauty in the world :-)”
