you've got new postcrossed mail
You have heard of geocaching
. You have heard of Bookcrossing
. Here comes Postcrossing
The main idea is that: if you send a postcard, you'll receive at least one back, from a random Postcrosser from somewhere in the world.
The goal of postcrossing is to allow people to receive postcards from all over the world, for free. Well, for the price of the stamp you put on the postcards you need to send if you wish to get one from someone you never met.
You can have up to 5 postcards traveling at any single time. Every time one of the postcards you sent is registered, you can request another address.
I bought my first postcrossed postcard in Brussels' touristy district today and will mail it somewhere in Finland tomorrow.
