A lot going out, all in one day…
Olaf x 3 is on his way to Derby, England, for a swap-bot Disney postcard trade. This is the first card I’ve pulled out of a newly-acquired boxed set “Art of Disney” cards. We were to write a Disney-related message on the card, & I kept mine Olaf related: how for me he is the best part of “Frozen,” and how I saw him inside Disneyland, resting atop a building & greeting people standing in line to meet the princesses.
That concludes today’s swap-bot segment; the rest of the cards are Postcrossing draws. The card at top right, depicting California’s Marine Mammal Center, is on its way to Vladivostok, Russia, where I assume it will be handed off to this Postcrosser’s wife, as he says she is the one who likes “cute animals.” Unless she doesn’t find pinnipeds cute, in which case I have no use for her.
The tiger card is on its way to Chongqing, China. This is actually a resend, replacing a (different) card I sent over 60 days ago, and which is therefore now “expired.” The intended recipient accepted my offer of a resend, but also told me this:
“The postcard is usual travelling for one and half month in China. But sometimes it takes longer. I had received a card travelled for 123 days. Amazing!”
So, perhaps she will receive this new card, and also the original! She tells me she is sending me a card to thank me for the resend.
The lighthouse, I hope, will find its way to Szczecin, Poland. The recipient expresses interest in all sorts of water-based athletics & sport, but the closest thing I have to offer is water.
The beautiful harbor seals are supposed to end up in Zhejiang, China, with a Postcrosser who describes herself as “a 25 years Chinese girl,” and says almost nothing else about herself, but does go on at some length about what type of cards she hopes to receive. Mine fits under the “animals live in the ocean” category. I was, of course, careful to steer clear of her NO list:
“NO Handmade cards/ad cards/wierd cards…and no postcards in envelope.”
I don’t have a clue what she meant by wierd/weird cards, but I think mine is in the clear.
