Postcard exchange taking flight

Are you one of those travellers that still picks up some postcards to send home to friends and family telling them about your trip? I do! There have been a few occasions that I have returned home before my post cards arrived, but I’ve since learnt to use the old ‘air mail’ sticker to help speed things up.

If you love getting free surprises in the mail and would like to send on some postcards of your local area, you might want to consider joining a postcard exchange.

What is a postcard exchange you ask?

The idea of postcard exchanging is to allow people to receive postcards from all over the world, for free. Well, almost free! The main idea is that: if you send a postcard, you will receive one back from somewhere in the world.

Why? Because there are lots of people who like to receive real mail. You can turn your mailbox into a box of surprises – and who wouldn’t like that?

If you have friends living interstate or overseas why not start up an exchange! If you don’t know anyone living away (or they are not interested in a postcard exchange – party poopers) you could try a service such as www.postcrossing.com.

Not only will you get postcards from all over the world, you’ll be able to explore your own town and send on postcards from your home.

Happy postcarding!
