Postcrossing: Rungitom’s way to travel the world

So when is the last time you get a mail or postcards? And by this I mean a real mail, not the recurring bill statements and promotional newsletter that you inadvertently agreed to get every single month. The last time I ever sent a mail was back in 1998 to my late dad in Brunei, and thats it, no more after that.

Enter Postcrossing, a postcard crossing project inspired by a simple reason, there are lots of people who like to receive real mail. The goal of this project is to allow people to receive postcards from all over the world, for free.

After I registered myself on Postcrossing, I get the chance to send postcards to first five Postcrossers,

Rungitom's postcards for fellow Postcrossers

These are for my Postcrossing friends in France, USA, Latvia, China and Japan.

I admit that my handwriting is a mess from all the keyboard typing these few years.

Postcrossing is something new that I want to try in 2012. Since I can’t travel to other continents as often as I like, at least with this, I put a “part” of myself to travel around the world.

Mail Now And Then

Mail Now And Then

I don’t know when I can get a postcard from other Postcrossers, but thats one key element in this project, the element of surprise. You may never know when you can get one, until then, just spread the love with inspiring postcards and your own words. You will never know how big deal it is for them to receive a postcard from you.

If you are interested, please visit www.postcrossing.com, register yourself as a Postcrosser and start your own postcard adventure!

 

Oh by the way, when is the last time you ever sent a mail? 🙂
