I have mixed feelings about sending and receiving postcards. On the one hand, I equate sending postcards with rubbing awesome travels in the face of the non-traveling recipient: “I’m currently backpacking in the grandeur of the Rocky Mountains, and you’re stuck at home and can’t be here, but I’ll send you this piece of paper instead!” A picture may be worth a thousand words, but an experience is worth much more.
On the other hand, I highly value anything sentimental; plus, there’s something uniquely heartfelt and artistic about postcards. (If you don’t believe me, just take a look at one of my favorite websites PostSecret.com.)
Having said that, I do occasionally send postcards while I’m on trips, mostly to my mom or to my best friend.
What’s your take on postcards? Love them? Hate them?
