Blog > A different kind of Postcrossing meetup

The weather up here in North Germany has been cold and rainy for the past weeks, so we’ve been day-dreaming about southern beaches and warm sunny days. Pretty much like the ones in Balaklava, Ukraine, where a group of intrepid postcrossers decided they should have a meetup… on a desert island!

The gathering was attended by postcrossers in the Sevastopol area, who loaded their kayaks with postcards and paddled in the beautiful Black Sea. They settled on this small island and spent a few hours checking out each others cards, talking, enjoying the sun, signing RAS cards, and swimming, of course!

The meeting was attended by (left to right): BlackDrago, Ael, alter_ago, a_ur, Mirrora and foksik, who sent us this lovely report.

So the challenge is on! Can you outdo these bold postcrossers and come up with a different activity for a Postcrossing meetup? We’d love to hear about it! :)
