I’m not sure where this week has gone, but it’s already Friday. Work has been insanely busy; maybe that had something to do with the time flying as it did. At any rate, it was also a fairly busy Postcrossing week. Three cards have arrived and two more have gone out. There have also been a few more “firsts”.
Where shall I start? Cards received!
This card arrived from Norway, the first of the firsts. It’s an Ikea card but you know what? I like it! What’s not to love about Highland cattle? This is another card that put a smile on my face. Kristin did good.
I’m not sure how I feel about this next card. It arrived from Finland and was taken by the sender while he was in New Zealand for a year… in 2002. The scenery reminds me very much of the Fraser Valley region of British Columbia. It’s the second cow picture in one week; that’s kind of unusual, isn’t it?
The third card is another first, the first card from Belgium. What a peaceful looking spot! I can just imagine walking through here, enjoying the quiet of a spring day. Lovely!
In addition to three cards arriving, another two left this week, one of them the last of the firsts. This card will be making its way to the post office tomorrow, having just been written tonight. It’s going south of the equator, the first postcard to do so. It will be making its way to New Zealand, to Auckland, to be precise.
And this card will be going to the Netherlands (again).
As far as stats go, I’ve now sent 30 cards and received 25. Travelling distance for those cards is 224,021 km. Travelling distance for the cards I’ve received is 172,757 km. Pretty cool!
