Let’s get a bunch of outgoings out of the way at once, here.
The two food package postcards are for a swap-bot trade. Have you ever tried pani puri? Mmmm… that card is going to Porto Seguro, Bahia, Brazil, and the Saladitas saltines panel went to Browns Mills, New Jersey.
The Rapunzel/Tangled card is headed for Beijing, China in a Postcrossing Forum tag trade to someone who in addition to liking Disney characters, enjoys Marvel characters including Sam Alexander’s Nova. I told her I’m a big fan of the newer Marvel characters, too–perhaps especially Kamala Khan’s Ms. Marvel.
The coast & castle scene from The Little Mermaid went off to a lover of that movie in Taoyuan City, Taiwan; that’s a regular Postcrossing draw.
How ’bout that wacky retro tennis scene? It’s another card from my ma’s stash, off to Ōtsu, Japan, in another Postcrossing Forum tag trade. Take a lot at the caption from the other side:
Tiger went out in yet another Postcrossing Forum tag trade to New Taipei City, Taiwan.
Finally, the California card. That was a regular Postcrossing draw, and it went out to Oberschefflenz, Germany–arriving there in about 7 days! It’s just incredible to me sometimes, the time differentials; I have a Postcrossing card out to France, for instance (not all that far from Germany) that’s been traveling for 17 days as I write this.
OH! INSTANT UPDATE! As I was writing this, I got the “Hurray” message that the card arrived! Here’s the message:
Thank you a lot for your amazing postcard of California. I love the illustration on the postcard. A lot of colours, that’s really beautiful!! I’d love to visit California. But this summer, I maybe will go to my bestfriend’s home : Wisconsin, Milwaukee! Should be beautiful too.
Okay, time to show a little backside:
