I was in the Vatican City. It was Jubilee, we watched the Pope perform mass in the Vatican Square. I had cut a half-mile long line to see the Sistine Chapel (but that’s a story for another day). The time and day were memorable, so I decided to send a postcard. Turns out the Vatican City is its own state so you need to buy a stamp from there to send.

I can’t remember who I sent the postcard to, maybe I have it somewhere, and if I do I will upload later. What I do remember is the act of buying, writing, and mailing the postcard. Such a simple, profound joy to connect with loved ones.

Recently places have started offering postcards to patrons to send to friends. The places I’ve been to that do this are bars, and it’s fun to send a post card to my brother or a random friend at the end of a night. I can about imagine the various drunk cards that are sent.

So when my friend Anna Andersson shared her project idea, I was delighted and couldn’t wait to participate.

I signed up and was thrilled to receive the first set of post cards. The photography is absolutely brilliant, and I’m already dreaming up ideas on how to participate in the project.

My ideas

  1. Send a postcard to each of the seven continents
  2. Write blog posts about my experiences and share the post card contents here
  3. Meet new people
  4. More to come!

Here are the first postcards…

Oh the places you’ll go!
