PaixSurLaTerre = Peace on Earth
Postcrossing ... creating friendships and promoting world peace, one postcard at a time!
Q) Interested in a DIRECT SWAP?
Just send me message!
I have yet to turn someone down.
"The only thing better than having a hobby is being able to share your hobby with others!"
Along with the very important postcrossing id, please include the following on your postcard:
• The current date
• Your first name
• Your postcrossing username
I live in the great state of Ohio and there is no place like home.
Cleveland, Ohio is the BEST location in the NATION!
Of the 50 states, I have traveled to 37 states.
I have lived and worked in the states of Ohio, Michigan, New York, and Georgia.
I love geography and I love sending and receiving mail, including postcards.
When I receive a postcard from a fellow Postcrosser, I log onto the Internet and learn about the postcard's subject.
Usually I use an online encyclopedia like:
I learn so much about the world that way!
La langue française est la plus belle langue en tout du monde!
(The French language is the most beautiful language in all the world!)
When I was a youngster my 4th grade (age 8) teacher introduced the class to penpals.
That was a great and a memorable experience.
A Postcrossing tip:
When I receive a Postcrossing postcard in the mail, with a pencil, I lightly print the received date in the lower right hand corner of the postcard ... that makes it easy to sort / store the postcards in "received by" order!
* also *
Including your Postcrossing username on all of your postcards will cut down on expired postcards since if there is a problem registering a postcard, a Postcrosser can contact you via your Postcrossing username!
Neat handprinting on a postcard make reading the postcard a j-o-y!
As a stamp collector ...
With each postcard that I mail out, I make sure that attractive commemorative (large) postage stamps are used ... I would appreciate postcards mailed to me to have the same, if possible.
I understand if you have limited access to postage stamps.
From The United States of America …
• Mailing a postcard overseas costs $1.05.
• Mailing a letter (up to 28g) overseas costs $1.05.
In August 2011, I drove to Ohio's state capital city of Columbus which is 198 kilometers (123 miles) south of where I live.
I attended a very large stamp show.
It is there that I purchased many mint (unused) commemorative (large) United States postage stamps to affix to my postcards and to my envelopes.
Before sending a postcard, I will read the recipient’s profile to see what stamps they would appreciate seeing on the postcard.
