Cards april 2013


Hello!

In april of 2013 I've received 11 postcards. It has got me cards from far away and cards from near. My top three of furtherest away: 1; Argentina (11.488km). 2; Taiwan (9.399km). 3; South Africa (9.254km).  The nearest postcard came from the Netherlands itself. It was about 35 km away, not that far. I'll show you all.

Sometimes a card can travel a short time. Most times it are cards from the Netherlands (where I live myself). Mostly they travel for about 1-3 days (depends of course when you sent them, since there is no post on sundays, haha). Sometimes a card travels a long time. When the distance is loads of kilometers they travel a longer period of time (about a week, 10 days or so). And of course there are this cards that get lost while traveling, which make them travel at least a month (sometimes up to about 125 days). The card from South Africa for instance. It has travelled for about 63 days. This card expired before I received it. It means that I didn't receive it in time, so the sender can send a new card (which is after 60 days). You've got to register the card as soon as possible with the code that everybody puts on their card (for instance: NL-1234583, where in this case NL stands for Netherlands, where I live, and the code is a original to put on the card. It's a code that is used once and than you get a new one, with an address). I like it. Of course the nicest thing is when they travel a long distance in a short time, haha. 

So. Which card do you like most?
Happy Postcrossing!
