This race is the oldest sports car race that has been held annually since 1923. It takes place near Le Mans, France and it showcases some of the most highly coveted cars. It is important to note that this race is one leg of the Triple Crown of Motorsports with the other two being the Indianapolis 500 and the Monaco Grand Prix. It is the 24 Hours of Le Mans race that inspired the creation of many other famous races such as the Daytona 500 and the Nurburgring.

mailday, postcrossing, direct swaps

I have been inactive with postcrossing for the past couple of months. The last time I went to the local post office was when I mailed a number of Christmas cards before 2016 ended. Now I am back to mail a couple of postcards and I cannot wait for them to reach their respective destinations and bring joy to their recipients.

These are all direct swaps as it has been ages since I was at postcrossing.com requesting for official cards to send. But since summer is here, I might have some free time to write more cards so I might just be requesting to send a bunch of cards very soon.

Here’s the list of cards I recently mailed:

  1. Mount Banahaw ~ M. Drnovsek, Slovenia
  2. Papemelroti Jeepney ~ D. Gonzales, NY
  3. Mayon Volcano ~ B. Matejkova, Czech Republic

Postcards and anything postcrossing-related is always a delight to receive in the mail!

I was lucky to win a giveaway in Postcrossing Philippines last month and it sure put a smile on my face whe I got to receive my prizes! Lookie! Some of these cards are blanked while some are used cards {official Postcrossing.com, in fact}. I love the cathedral card as well as the one from Japan. I also adore the big PH cards that include a couple of my favorites ~ tarsier of Bohol and Miag-ao Church of Iloilo {which is also a UNESCO World Heritage site}, which I shall be sharing with my sister {who is more addicted to postcrossing these days!}. I will also be sharing the University of Sto. Tomas cards to some members of our Facebook group. The package also included a pink clear folder for stashing postcards as well as 2 pieces of Miss World Megan Young stamps {Php30 denomination}, which will be handy when I send an envelope one of these days since I do not really collect stamps. I find it a joy to send them to postcrossing friends and put a smile on their faces! :)

Oh well, I am slacking in postcrossing these days and I am still contemplating whether I should request cards from Postcrossing.com or participate in an upcoming local swap in our group. I will try to decide after reading all about reason 7 MF.
