Blog > A million postcards out there!

Yay! Can you hear the fireworks outside?! It’s true, we have now reached the exciting milestone of a million received cards. Congratulations everybody, we couldn’t have done it without each and every one of you! :-)

The millionth card travelled from ebalci, in Turkey to s13 in Romania.

Nobody guessed on which countries the card would travel from and to… but don’t worry, you still have till the end of the month to participate in our “a million cards’ contest” and win one of the 10 packs of free MOO postcards we have to offer!

I am sorry, this cannot be true. I guessed from Finland to Germany (or was it the other way round?), so we cannot have a million cards received yet...
But if it is really true:

Wow! Wonder how long it will take to get to 2 million?! Who would have thought the card would have been from Turkey to Romania, what are the odds? is random and which card is registered at the precise very cool it was such an interesting transit. Hooray Postcrossing, for showing how the world is so connected! And how many people can have fun being connected!

When I applied to postcrossing, the site was in the previous version. At the top we could read "more than 800K" postcards registered. Well, I work with computers and I read 800K like 800*1024. This equals to 819200 and not 800000. I am trying to suggest a new number to celebrate: 1000K postcards!
What about? 1024000 postcards!
Hugs for all!
