Hot air balloons from Germany

Receiving a lovely postcard like this one from Germany reminds me why I enjoy(ed) Postcrossing so much!

It’s one of the postcards sold by the postsallove.com web site – and I honestly had no clue they had any type of postcards other than those Greetings from… collection. Any day I learn something new is a good day! I’ve been looking through their web site for the last hour and I can pretty much say I WANT THEM ALL. I’m not going to order any because I have way too many blank postcards already and, well, my self control is great… and so on. ;)

Also, stamps! The bunny one is just awesome!

Hamburg, Germany & I <3 San Diego & hot air balloons

I’ve changed my profile/wishlist on Postcrossing about two weeks ago because I felt it was just not specific enough and I was getting a lot of postcards that… well, honestly, are not the kind that I actually enjoy. Every postcard I get is very much appreciated, there’s no doubt about that, but a lot of them just didn’t have the “WOW!” effect when I pulled them out of my mailbox. So I added some specific themes and stuff that I like… and it seems to be working!

First, this great view card from Hamburg, Germany! Unfortunately, it got a little tear at the top, but it’s nothing major and the postcard is still in a good condition!
