This is the sixth postcard that I have recieved from someone on Postcrossing.com. It is from Austria. I sent one today when Mom and I were out with Frankie doing errands. Something that I find a little odd, though--for lack of a better word...while I get postcards from a lot of different places, the only place they ever have me send postcards to is somewhere in Russia. I mean, different people in different towns in Russia, but all Russia. I don't know, maybe people on the other side of the world all get assigned people in North America to send Postcards to. I don't know exactly how they work it. I guess I "went up a level" or something, because today when I registered to send a post card I was able to do it twice. They're both going to--you guessed it--Russia.

It seems logical that postcards are directed towards places distant from the source, but that should include a great deal more than Russia.

Well, you can put in your profile whether or not you want to send postcards out of your own country or not.

@xstitcher I can understand that due to the difference in postage costs, but if you agree to send them overseas there should be some level of variety.

You have made me laugh with this. Castle/Schloss Schönbrunn is a beautiful place to visit in Austria. I have never been there.

Have you been there yourself, @telme55 ? The way my life is going (and for lack of money) I will likely never get to travel overseas.

I have never heard of anything like this do they pay you to do that? What all do you have to do?

You register on the site, set up a profile, and hit "send a postcard" on the left of the screen.Then, they match you up with someone and give you their address to send it to.

Me too! I need to send postcards to Russia. Maybe this postcard crossing is really a hit in there. Do you postcard from here? PM me your details :)

That's a gorgeous postcard. when my husband was alive, we collected postcards and we belonged to a few groups and sent and received cards from all over the world. It's a wonderful way to see the world and make new friends.
