Postcrossing

Ok, so I am totally one of those gals that love to get goodies in the mailbox. I signed up for Postcrossing a while back and just fell in love with it. In a nutshell it is an online project that allows you to send and receive postcards from all over the world. Look at the postcard I got from Lingjing from China. She wrote the cutest message and I especially enjoy looking at the postage stamps and all the goodies stamped all over the postcards. Now, just to note, I don't know any of the people I receive and send to but I always send them a simple note to wish them well.



Postcrossing has a lot of members and the best part is that it's free to sign up (you basically pay for your postcard and postage)

127,201 members
201 countries
94 postcards/hour
2,964,744 postcards received
115,011 postcards traveling
16,240,637,008 kms traveled
405,256 laps around the world
