Since November of 2015, I have captured many “postcard moments” and mailed myself over 75 postcards from all corners of the Earth – most have made their way to my mailbox while others have sadly been lost to postal purgatory!
How do I choose the perfect postcard?
The requirements for being chosen to send to me: be humorous, show an image that captured my memory or interesting to look at.
What do I write?
And the inscription must include a fact, a fascinating thought or random memory that I wanted to capture in time with this lost art.
This is the greatest souvenir I’ve ever collected! What better way to capture one’s memory and reflect upon it. So many unbelievable memories occur in a single day let alone a week or month of travel and this helps keep the memories alive!
I take so much pleasure in flipping through my piles of mail after weeks or months of travel, finding a postcard from myself. It helps me express gratitude and to be reminded in a tangible form of the fun or sometimes frightening memories of being a traveler.
