With the arrival of a postcard I sent to Lappeenranta, Finland (travelled 8,183km in seventeen days), I requested one more address. My latest Postcrossing card will journey 9,519km to Amersfoort in the Netherlands. I picked out a nice view of Thai food for Tessa’s card. This is the 41st “official” card I’ve sent.
I recently found my original Postcrossing account, opened in July 2006; I’d changed emails and had forgotten my password but was finally able to access it. I’ve emailed the site’s administrators asking if there was a way to combine the statistics from both accounts so I could close out the one I opened last year. My very fist card sent bore the ID number of TH-69. By contrast, the latest card is numbered TH-186079!
Now that I have all of my original and current Postcrossing stats, I’m anxious to start scanning my old cards so I can write about them on my new postcards-only blog, “Please, Mister Postman!” I also aim to become more active in my postcarding activities; I only sent fifteen cards in 2013 and eight so far in 2014. Let 2015 be the year of the postcard!
