Unusual places you wrote postcards from…

Sounds very interesting!

What an interesting topic ! :smile: Thanks for creating it !

My favorite postcrossing memory :

I wrote a postcard to a Lithuanian girl in the grotto of Bom Jesus do Monte sanctuary in Braga, Portugal :portugal: last Summer. It is one of my favourite places in the world! :earth_africa:
I bought the postcard at the souvenir shop and sat in the grotto by the water. It was so peaceful. I ignored the people who passed by and wrote my postcard.
Then I took a picture of the postcard in front of the grotto (see the link below) and sent it in the mailbox which was nearby :postbox:

A magic moment :sparkles: :heart:

I’ll take 1 or 2 addressed and stamped postcards with me to the car wash and write them sitting in my car while it’s getting washed. I got to an automatic drive through car wash near the post office.

One of my favorite Postcrossing memories: Writing while flying in an airplane! I send out a small batch (about 5-6 cards), all with the detail that their card was written at about 30,000ft in the air! The thank you messages I received were over-joyous at the fact that their handwritten notes came from so high up and were a part of my trip. I plan on doing this again on my next vacation.

I have often done it in hotels… I usually read while flying, but will definitely give it a go next trip!

I wrote some cards while riding my bike cross country when I lived in Korea

I bet you wrote them while taking a break from riding your bike, for otherwise your nose would have hit the ground a few times.

The best place, at the postcard writing desk in The. Smithsonian’s Postal Museum in Washington DC
