The Lost Art of Post Cards

Whenever I’m on a trip, one of my favorite things to do is sit in a café and write a post card to some of my favorite people back home. 

Post cards are such a lost art. 

While sometimes they take weeks (or in Spain’s case, 5 months and counting) to arrive, to me they’re like sharing a piece of my trip with people I adore. 

What about you? Do you have any favorite traditions you do when on a trip?

  1. That is so cool. I might actually steal this one from you. Where/how do you post them, though? I think that might need a trip to the post office in some places, which would be yet another reason not to do it in my case.

    I don’t really have anything like this. I normally just take photos, and with such a busy schedule that I have these days, I rarely get to edit those vacation photos. I got an action cam recently and plan to record every bit of the event, and then compile the memorable ones into one 3-4 minute video at the end of the trip. Not exactly a unique idea, but I plan on giving it a try. 😀


  2. I’ve never been one to do postcards, but I do sort of miss the olden days of sitting down and writing a letter out by hand. Of course these days, I seldom manage even to send an email or a text, but that nostalgia does still tug at me from time to time.
