I am sending a postcard to a woman in Japan. She said she likes long cards and the only one I have is this ad card from Victoria, British Columbia. But I don't think she will mind since she said she likes all types of cards and has even sent out ad cards herself. Postage to Japan is $1.85.
My 2nd card is from the Netherlands and is a painting called Le Printemps (Springtime), painted in 1886 by Claude Monet. There is 1 stamp on the back of a tree. The card took 10 days to get here and traveled 4,083 km.
I got 4 postcard today! The first is from France and is a great photo of the Eiffel Tower at night with fireworks. The stamp on the back is of the Eiffel Tower too. The card took 10 days to get here and traveled 3,994 km.
I also got a postcard from Ohio, USA today. It's an art card of a photo taken in London in 1938. There are 3 stamps on the back, 2 of a teapot and 1 of a statue at Rockefeller Center. The card took 14 days to get here and traveled 2,650 km.
I got an ad card from Hong Kong today. I generally don't like ad cards but even ad cards can be interesting and teach you something you never knew before. This one is advertising a concert by Middle Eastern singer Yasmin Levy. There is 1 stamp on the back of a bird. The card took 14 days to get here and traveled 12,159 km.
After only having received one postcard from Italy (over 6 months ago), in the past 2 days I've gotten 2 of them! This one is from Milan and shows their cathedral. There is 1 stamp on the back of a woman's face from the "Women in Art" series. The card took 20 days to get here and traveled 4,624 km.
I am sending a postcard to a woman in the Netherlands. She likes vintage cards and everything to do with paper/design, etc, so I chose this card with a photo of a vintage typewriter. Postage to the Netherlands is $1.85.
My second card is from Germany and is a multi-view from Dresden. 2 days ago I got a multi-view from Dresden but this one is different. There are 2 stamps on the back of a marigold and the Madonna and child. The card took 6 days to get here and traveled 4,678 km.
I got 2 postcards today. The first is from Italy, the 2nd card I have gotten from that country. It's a lovely multi-view of the Monte Crostis area in northern Italy. There are 3 colourful stamps on the back of Saint Anthony and 2 of different Carnivals. The card took 7 days to get here and traveled 4,537 km.
