My 50th postcard reached officially..!

Little I knew about this wonderful website, Postcrossing, when I signed up early this year on 8th of January seeing someone tweet the postcard they received regularly. I signed up this website with no expectation and sent 5 postcards to people around the globe whom I never knew writing and intro about myself. Along with the addresses this website popped up, I thought it was a great idea to print few photographs at Printo, that I clicked during my travels to near and dear ones. I was unhappy with the print quality and the thickness of the postcards and bought the postcards at Sapna Book House.

I own a huge collection of stamps, the habit and a hobby that I inherit from from father. I had signed up the Philately club in 2010 but the credit was over. I couldn’t find the philately collection at JP Nagar post office and went to the Jayanagar head office and bought stamps worth Rs 750. I also bought colour glitter pens, star stickers and Chotta Bheem, Micki Mouse, Winnie the Pooh stickers to decorate the postcard.
On a rainy Saturday, I sat sticking the stamps, sticker and writing down. It definitely brought out the school kid in me when I held the glitter pen.

Postcards with stamps
The postcards I received from various countries were amazing. Some would send the old tickets, coins, stamps in an envelope. Everyday, I long to receive a postcard and many times, I call up home to enquire how many I did receive today?

Few weeks ago, the postman asked my father, how do I receive so many postcards. I would not be surprised if he signs up, too.

My “official” 50th Postcard was registered on 15th Dec 2013, though I have sent many postcards, some of them, which the users never registered. On a whole, I am reliving my scholastic hobby of collecting stamps, now the beautiful postcards also.
