Last week, my card to Japan arrived and the receiver was so glad to have it.
Today i got a notice that the card for Todd in the States arrived and i can now expect a thank you card from him.
I will check the post office this Friday.
I got the following cards through private swap. I thank the senders for approving my request for a swap.
Water Towers of Kuwait
Bus Station in Pavlodar, Kazahkstan
A private swap. I have waited for this card for more than a month. The person whome i addressed my cards to was on vacation for 3 weeks. Am glad she is back now and i can’t wait to receive more cards soon.
I got two postcards this week.
City of Prague.
Prague reminds me of a place to earn a TESOL. 🙂
Here’s a nature shot of Baltic Sea –
I love postcrossing!
I can now click again!
I got my new camera the other day. It was a 24 hours transaction with this guy – http://www.tipidpc.com/useritems.php?username=dbgadgets . I was so happy of the smooth and successful transaction.
After the battery was charge, i took out my unscanned postcrossing postcards and have a shoot at them. So here they are:
The Altai Mountains
Bad Marienberg, Westwerwald
Suspending Temple, Shanxi
San Prieto, Rome
More postcards later.
These postcards are all sent by postcrossers.
I guess i failed to post here the 9 cards i received two weeks ago. I just thought about it because i got 2 cards today.
How i wish i can show you all these 11 cards now. I still I will try to find means to borrow a scanner and have these cards scanned.
The 9 cards that i got hold of at the same day are from the following countries:
Siberia (Altai Mountains)
Finland (Soft House Tales)
Netherlands (Holland Images – Tulips)
Germany (Westerwald) — a direct swap
China (Suspending Temple, Xanxi)
Russia (St. Petersburg)
Norway (Sognefjorden – west norway)
The cards i received today:
USA (Garden Grove, Orange County, California)
Russia (national greeting card)
8 postcard exchange plus 1 direct swap postcards i picked from the post office yesterday noontime. I forgot when was the last time i went there to pick my cards. But obviously couple of the 9 have stayed in the postoffice for several weeks already because one card has reached me after 150 days and that is from Russia.
The 8 cards were from the following countries:
Netherlands – 13 days
Russia – 150 days
Finland – 25 days
Germany – 18 days
USA – 34 days
China – 32 days
Ukraine – 73 days
Belarus – 34 days
The counting of travel days begin from the day you requested for an address at postcrossing website until the day the receiver will register the card received. Usually it only takes a maximum of 2 to 3 weeks if from long distance countries but due to traffic then that would caused the card to reach the destination much longer.
It’s my first time to get a card from Belarus and also from Russia. And my third from China.
One of my postcards arrived in Netherlands after 17 days. Mirjam sent me this note:
MirjamvanderBijl wrote you a message:
I love the Postcard you sent me! What a great festival!! I would love to see it sometime!
My sister in law comes also from the Philipines. She is now here for almost a year and she is married to my brother in law and she is so sweet. We have heard last week that she is going to have a baby, so that’s realy wonderfull!
I love the people from the Philippines, they’re very nice.
I wish you a nice day and a Happy Postcrossing.
God bless you!
Lots of greetings,
