Fur Only Looks Good On Me!

This is yet another pen pal postcard, this time from Singapore! This cute illustration is attributed to ACRES, or the Animal Concerns Research & Education Society. ACRES is an advocacy group operating out of Singapore that does pretty much exactly what you might imagine based on the name: they work […]

A Snake in the… Hoof?

Check out this postcard from another pen pal from China! When I started pen-palling in 2011, many of my friends lived in China. In case you’re curious, I used PenPal World, which is an awesome site to connect internationally on! Anyway, this is a card from China Post itself, endorsing […]

(Pia)No-Good Puns…

An old pen pal from China sent me this postcard! First off, the name on this sign has a Romanization, so that is a plus (it means I don’t have to so incompetently use Kanji Writer to figure out the name). Though I could not find another picture online quite […]

Haulin’ Seagrass!

This Official Postcrossing card was sent from Portugal! This shows a beautiful view of the city of Aveiro as admired from the Aveiro Lagoon. Aveiro is located in the administrative region of Região de Aveiro, which is on the east coast in the upper half of the country. This city […]

Live Your Life In Full Color!

This AMAZING work of art reached me as part of a parcel from Italy! This sender has sent me numerous handmade cards and they are always, always, always bringing they’re A-game when it comes to style and beauty. And what a fantastic reminder this is – these times that we […]

Get Ya Some Water!

Here’s an Official Postcrossing card from Finland! Ah, the good ol’ kettle-over-the-campfire view. And that’s a straight-up cast iron kettle, isn’t it? (Is that the right term?) Come get yourself some coffee, tea and bathwater (because if it’s not scalding hot, it’s not a bath!) Thank you lots for this […]

Protectors of the Treasures!

I received this Official Postcrossing card from Taiwan! This cool building is the National Palace Museum of Taipei, Taiwan’s capital. What kinds of bangin’ stuff can you find here? Only over 700,000 artifacts spanning the course of 5,000 years of Chinese history! That includes things paintings, ceramics, jade/bronze items, and […]

Kazan Cathedral, a Restored Wonder!

Here’s a pretty neat Official Postcrossing card from the United Kingdom! This is a look at a landmark in Russia’s capital, Moscow. This is Kazan Cathedral, an Orthodox church located in Red Square. As reference, Red Square is like the center square of the city, and it’s where you can […]

Kotovasiya Cats!

This Official Postcrossing card comes from Russia! This is from a series known as “Kotovasiya”, which features cartoon cats. Not to be confused with the Blue Cat series, this series depicts very simple but hard-to-not-adore cats in their daily lives. I think? Thing is, I can’t seem to find much […]

Life Guard on Duty!

Here’s another Official Postcrossing card from Germany! This one was bought during the sender’s trip to Denmark, which is a country I haven’t talked about in a long time! What you see here is the Royal Guard of Amalienborg Palace, located in the country’s capital of Copenhagen (western Denmark). This […]
