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!
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.
An art card from Russia. I'm not sure who the artist is but she's on Instagram, the back says. With hair like that the lady could be Scottish! Cute shaped Beekeeper collecting honey stamp too. Thank you Dasha
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.
A great multi-view showing San Antonio. Another lovely card for my US State Card Collection. Texas has been filled! Thank you Monica who goes to school in New York for my card.
This marvelous fortified town is Naarden in The Netherlands. It has been included in the UNESCO site 'Dutch Water Defence Lines' since 2021. I received this before that time and just thought it was a cool card. Now, I think it's a cool UNESCO card! Thank you Mildred who lives in Naarden.
A very special card in my collection. A New York aeriel shot showing the Twin Towers World Trade Center before the tragedy. Thank you Stephen for my wonderful card.
