I have always had a serious fascination with the world and with the people of the world. It has been a dream of mine to travel the world as well. So far it is only a dream but before I travel the world by plane, ship, bus and train, at least I will get some travelling done by being stationary. Being the product of the modern thirst for instant gratification, I have found it best to bring the mountain to Mohammed. I really also do like collecting things and a surprise is just as great… Postcards are PERFECT for this!
“Good things come to those who wait”, they say. Well, I send a postcard, I wait and before long… something good comes along in the mail.
What further fascinates me, is the fact that somebody far from where I am and whom I don’t know has taken the time to send me something that I love. This is of course usually quid pro quo but it is the thought that counts.
I do not think that I would have been as passionate about postcards, were it not for a friend that I had made from Guernsey. It was her that first recommended I join Postcrossing. She also has a delightful blog about postcards, which is a must for any postcard enthusiast!
