Discovered Postcrossing from one of my fellow 365ers and I found the idea intriguing enough to try it myself. Here is my first postcard I’m sending to the auto-generated address I was provided.
I chose the particular postcard above cause I think it shows a side of the Filipino culture and not just the beautiful sceneries we have in our country. There’s nothing wrong with showing our mountains/volcanoes/rivers/seas/etc but I’d rather send something with more life in it and a picture showing more than 15 people riding one tricycle while smiling their hearts out takes the cake over lush greeneries or sparkling blue waters anytime in my book.
This is the first time I’ll be sending anything via snail mail for the longest time ever. I think the last letter I sent via post was way back in highschool. Come my college years I discovered the internet and I never looked back. I spend Php13.00 to have this posted (it was that cheap pala) and I hope it will safely reach the recipient.
