It's always exciting when I receive a postcard in the mail. I want to share that joy by sending a postcard every week; sometimes to family and friends, and other times to strangers via Postcrossing.com.

Do you like to receive mail? Isn't it great to open your mailbox and find a colourful postcard from a far off country. If you want to increase your chances of this happening then I recommend that you join PostCrossing.com. It's a worldwide organization that brings together like minded people, all of whom enjoy both sending and receiving postcards. I have been a member there for over two years, though I haven't sent all that many cards. I have totally enjoyed those I received and generally stick them on my fridge for a few weeks to enjoy before they are stored away.
My sister challenged me in November to send a postcard each week, which I did, but I haven't sent any via PostCrossing since. Today that has changed. I have registered to send the following:
This covered bridge is located a mere eight kilometres away. It is the last bridge of it's type in Ontario. It will be travelling to Germany.
This card features the world famous CN tower. For decades it was the tallest free standing building in the world. Alas, that record has been broken in recent years. It will be travelling to a young collector in The Netherlands.
