Postcrossing Meetup, Krakow, Poland. 10.11.2018


This is a Postcrossing meetup in Krakow, Poland.  I'm going to have to do some searching to see what is involved with attending a meetup. I've received a few cards from atendee's over the years but haven't really any idea of what goes on at the meets.  

There are always several signitures on the cards and it's interesting to see all the names.  Some even have little rubber stamps made up with their names on to speed up the process.  I'm interested to see what is involved with gathering the names and how the process works.  

I'm not sure who to thank on this one as there are several names so thanks go to all who signed!

Winter Moomin Card, Finland



A Winter Moomin card with glittery snowflakes.  It comes from Tanja in Finland who tells me that in Winter everyone has lights in their garden to chase away the dark.  I do that too and my back garden is FULL of solar lights in all shapes, sizes, colours and styles.  Cheers me up every time I go out the back door when the sun goes down.

Ginger Haired Lady, Art Card, Russia

I think this is an Ad card.  It's a Merry Christmas one with Santa and his reindeer though so I don't mind.  All the way from Wei Yi in Taiwan. Thank you.

Port Lockroy, Antarctica


A few years ago on the old forum (which is now the Legacy Forum) a lady postcrosser was travelling to Antarctica to study and offered to send cards out to other members while there.  I jumped at the chance!  To participate all I had to do was send the person a card from me plus send them whichever postcard (unwritten and blank) I'd like them to send back to me from their trip.  

I found this card for sale online and sent it off with my swap card as soon as it arrived.  After a few weeks I got it back, all stamped and postmarked and with a wonderful message on the back from the little animals at the station about their work with Santa!  Adorable.  

So happy to have this rare destination in my collection and thank you so much to the postcrossing swapper who sent it to me.

UNESCO Taos Pueblo, New Mexico. USA


A wonderful card for the New Mexico UNESCO site 'Taos Pueblo'. I'm so sad that it not only has suffered terrible treatment in the form of 'The Fold' from the 'Horrible Ex-Postman' but it has also been afflicted in several place by the White Scuff of Doom that the postal machines dish out.  Why is it always the special cards that fare the worst.  I'm still happy to have this card though and it has a place in my collection.   Thank you Carol in the USA.
