Seven Postcards from Seven Continents!

 

Have you ever had the chance to see a postcard from each of the seven continents?

…If not, that will no longer be the case after today! Over the past month and a half, I have been putting together this post in collaboration with some amazing travel bloggers from around the world, and I am super excited to finally share it with you all.

As many of my friends know, one of my typical ‘travel traditions’ is that whenever I visit a new country I always buy & send a postcard. Even though it is no longer common to send letters to friends through the mail anymore, I still enjoy sending postcards whenever I have the chance. I think it is a great way to share travel memories while also brightening someones’ morning when they first check to see what has arrived in their mailbox. ☺️

 As always, thank you very much for visiting my blog, and I hope you will enjoy this post!

    These are great collections of postcards and souvenirs from each continent. I actually sent a postcard to my Mum from Ushuaia, Argentina and arrived back home before the postcard did! My favourite postcard from the list is the Belgian one because of the chocolate, I really love chocolate.

    What a fun post! I love post cards and have the kids send them to all their friends. Everyone loves to get mail and the photos on postcards are always so very beautiful. I saw recently a great idea on sending yourself postcards and then putting them together like a little book. I’m going to start that with the next trip!

  35. This is a super creative idea! Not a lot of people still send good ol’ snail mail from travels nowadays, so I love that you’ve written a post celebrating such a thing! (and I love that you always send a postcard from each and every country you visit)! I’m familiar with a few of the bloggers you’ve highlighted in this list and will be checking out the others. All of the photos of the postcards look lovely, and I especially love the decorations on the front cover of Drina’s travel journal. It’s so pretty ❤

    What a great collaboration! I love post cards. I recently got one from a friend traveling and it just totally made my day. I think this inspired me to get into the mode of sending post cards to my friends and family as I travel. They did a great job with the fun themed layouts. Thanks for sharing!

    This has got to be one of the coolest collabs I’ve ever seen! I’m sad to say that I haven’t been in the habit of sending postcards for a number of years… probably because instagram posts are so much easier (I hate hate hate how that sounds!). This is inspiring though, and I’d like to do something like this 🙂 Thanks for the idea!

  38. What a fantastic idea for a post! I bet it was no easy feat finding someone to contribute to Antarctica! What a cool (pun intended!) place for them to go on honeymoon. I still have two continents to go to complete my list; South America and Antarctica. I hope to get to both one day 🙂
