First Mail Day for 2017

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
  4. Christmas Postcard 2pcs ~ D. Gonzales, NY
  5. Christmas Postcard ~ L. Tobias, PH
  6. Christmas Postcard ~ F. Van Cleeff, Holland
  7. Philippine GF Card ~ E. Septhriani, Indonesia
  8. Christmas Postcard ~ R. Neehaul, Mauritius
  9. Phippine GF Card ~ K. Pribylova, Czech Republic
  10. Kesong Puti card ~ N. Harmoko, Indonesia

Got another surprise in the mail

I have been busy swapping with my fellow local postcrossers and I have just recently received another surprise in the mail. It comes in the form of these lovely mint Nat Geo ad cards {which I shall be swapping off to other postcrossers, too} and this new issue of our favorite magazine, Cars. It was timely that Roselyn offered to include this in our swap as I have not gotten around to buying the little man his own copy. Now I was able to save some moolah, thanks to this swap! 😀

I sent a bunch of big cards in exchange for this goodies and I really love my loot! I am working on a few more swaps and I am hoping I will also get loads of lovely things out of them.

Thanks Roselyn for swapping and until our next swap! ^_^

Semur en Auxois, France

I recently received this beautiful card of Semur en Auxois in France from a direct swap. Won’t you agree that this is quite a lovely place and don’t this lovely scenery made you think of getting one of those luxury paris apartments for rent and settling in France for good? Waking up to this amazing view every single day will surely be a very wonderful experience.

According to Wikipedia, Semur En Auxois has a medieval core and was built on pink granite bluff  more than half

Prambanan Temple in Indonesia

postcards, Indonesia, direct swaps

I received this card from Postcrossing Enthusiasts member Dini who hails from Indonesia. This postcard is part of this mail surprise I received recently.

Prambanan Temple is the largest Hindu temple in Indonesia and one of the largest Hindu temples in South East Asia. This temple looks a bit different from the other Hindu temples located in Indonesia and boasts of a very impressive structure. What’s even more interesting is that the photograph used for this postcards was taken by an Indonesia blogger, who blogs at www.post-traveller.blogspot.com. Cool, right?  😀

Thanks for the lovely message you wrote at the back and for swapping with me Dina. I do hope we can swap again real soon!

Once I am done reading all about Matt Booth, I sure will be back to share more of the postcards I received recently. Have a good one!  :-))
