Are you a stamp collector?
Do you love meeting new people?
Are you interested in other cultures and parts of the world?
Do you love receiving actual mail?
Would you love your family to learn more about geography?
If you can answer "yes" to any of these questions, have I got a deal for you!
POSTCROSSING is an online project that connects random participants around the globe who, then, send one another post cards. (You can check out their website to see how they do it.)
The Doctor and I have exchanged postcards with people in Russia, Indonesia, China, Thailand, Italy, Nebraska, Belize, Brazil, The Netherlands, Italy, Germany, London, Canada, Ukraine, Japan, Taiwan, and other places on this wonderful world of ours.
Our enthusiasm knows no bounds where Postcrossing is concerned! Seriously! We love looking through our cards and our maps and thinking about the lives of people in these other places. The kids have taken their interest further by studying locations, hobbies, and events mentioned on the postcards by the kind people who have taken the time to mail them.
When we get settled, we plan on setting up a large map with pins for places we have sent cards and for places from which we have received cards.
Today, The Doctor is mailing postcards to The Netherlands!
Try it: Het is leuk!
