A friend of mine wrote the following in response to a recent Facebook post I made about the tradition of mailing postcards:

“When I go travelling, I buy postcards and mail them to myself. This is so I can receive a note like “Wish you were here” and the stamp/postmark from visited country :)”

I love it. Afterall, if you’re the kind of person who likes to send postcards, you’re also probably the sort who like to receive them too so why not send them to yourself from places you’ve visited. I’m totally doing this.
