Hidden from the Crowds!

I got this Official Postcrossing card from Germany as well! What’s shown here is Hiddensee Island, an island that’s located in the Baltic Sea. The Baltic Sea, by the way, is that body of water that sits between Sweden and countries like Germany, Poland, etc. So Hiddensee Island is just […]

Friends of the Rhine!

This is an Official Postcrossing card I received from Germany! This is a really cute, anthropomorphized depiction of the city of Düsseldorf, which is located in western Germany. We’re gonna run through these one by one, so be prepared for a long post! (That’s really me telling myself to be […]

Arctic Friends!

This adorable Official Postcrossing card comes from Russia! This was actually a lovely foldup card that was sent to me, complete with cute decorations and a fun puzzle to solve! This card is the epitome of wholesomeness – all it needs now is a bottle of Coca-Cola! 😛 Thank you […]

Steel Yourselves!

I got this Official Postcrossing postcard from Pennsylvania! For some reason, the name of that state seemed familiar (hehehe).

Lighter Than Air!

I received this Official Postcrossing card from California! Depicted are two US Navy airships that existed between the World War eras: USS Akron and USS Macon. These airships, which were sister vessels to each other, were first launched in 1931, and were the largest aircraft of their time. Let’s talk […]

The Range of Four-Thousanders!

This one is an Official Postcrossing card from Switzerland! I believe this postcard shows the Alps, the longest mountain range that’s completely in Europe. It goes through eight countries with its 1,200 km of peaky mass, and it’s shaped like a crescent, forming a sort of “barrier” around northern Italy […]

Savin’ the Big Kitties!

This postcard reached me from Minnesota! I was given the opportunity to add another lovely feline to my collection of lovely feline cards! This tiger here is a resident of the International Exotic Animal Sanctuary, located in Boyd, Texas (kinda close to Dallas in northeast Texas). This was a sanctuary […]
