Wroclaw, Poland (PL-641751)

I got this lovely postcard yesterday, from a couple of Postcrossers named Weronika & Marek who live in Poland.

Such a cute postcard, isn’t?! What was even nicer, they wrote a lovely message on the back saying that they visit Croatia every year and love every minute they spend here. Isn’t that nice? :)

So okay, I kind of think this specific kind of postcard is well-known and all that (especially since I’ve heard a lot of people call it by its original name, “kotovasiya”). nd I googled it as well and there are a lot of links and pictures etc. But I’ve never heard it before. ::shrugs:: I saw an offer for some of those cards on Postcrossing forum, thought this specific card is REALLY cute and here it is now.

I’m still quite clueless about the origin and meaning of the card. Feel free to fill me in if you know more. :)

I kind of forgot to update this blog in quite a while…. :( I’ll do my best to get back on track quickly.

So, today I found this lovely postcard in my mailbox. It’s an official Postcrossing card, coming straight from Germany and with a really cool writing on its back. Among other things the sender wrote is this awesome quote: “Show me the books he loves and I shall know the man far better than through mortal friends.” I’m not sure where this quote is coming from, but I like it anyway. :)

Not to mention it’s quite fun to find a Christmas postcard in your mailbox – in February. <3
