Postcards home

If you travel to a foreign destination, one of the first things you should do is send home postcards to your friends and family. I always have a hard time finding things to write as I’ve barely begun the vacation; nothing is worse than arriving home before the postcard!

Postcards are one of the most exciting things to get in the mail, next to packages of course. I have a large postcard collection from friends and family from all over the world acting as a sort of a travel wish file. All the exotic locations in the world and you have a friend who can suggest an itinerary; beats having to do all the legwork yourself! So next time you leave home, don’t forget to write; a handwritten postcard beats an email anyday!
