Sending out another 2 Postcrossing cards:
Snoopy & Woodstock are off to Bangkok, Thailand, and I am jealous. I told the recipient about my trip earlier this year to her city, & how I loved exploring the wet markets & night markets, and how I especially loved all of the wonderful, plentiful fresh fruit. No, it’s not at all the same here in California. I also told her, since she did specify a desire for Snoopy cards (something even more rare here than an ever-present, abundant variety of super-delicious & cheap fresh fruit), about my trip out to the big Megabangna mall, especially to visit the Charlie Brown Cafe. It was there, in fact, that I found & purchased my first set of Peanuts postcards. This is my second-ever Postcrossing card to Thailand. I have yet to receive one.
As for Lithuania, I have sent 3 and received 5. This will be my 4th out, I guess, to the city of Vilnius, to a 47-year-old mother to 5 children between the ages of 6 and 23. She claims to still have time for hobbies, including traveling, handicrafts, & Postcrossing.
Two of my Postcrossing cards have reached their destinations:
The card I sent to Scotland reached its destination after traveling 6 days and 4,936 miles.
My Germany-bound card landed after 6 days and 5,709 miles
So now, I get to mail out two more cards! Going out to Tokyo, Japan & Vilnius, Lithuania:
Let’s make that another two rounds of “The Usual!”

In swap-bot news, the latest trade is for aerial views of a city or town. Going out to far-away Kamnik, Slovenia & nearby Daly City, California, it’s one copy each of this card:
I love that this town has no-chain-nothin’, not even a Starbucks. I also love that modern conveniences are just a 5-minute drive away!
Vilnius is the capital of Lithuania, and its largest city, with a population of 539,939. Vilnius has some of the highest internet speeds in the world, with an average download speed of 36.37 MB/s and upload speed of 28.51 MB/s. — Wikipedia
The card I sent to Worclaw, Poland has arrived! It traveled 8 days and 5,828 miles. Now, I get to send out another card through Postcrossing.
The recipient of my card mentioned a love for local artists, so I sent this image by Narboo, of Seattle, Washington:
If you ever spend time in Seattle, you are sure to see this guy ABSOLUTELY EVERYWHERE.
