#26 Taiwan

Yen-Chiu from Taiwan sent me this colorful postcard from Taiwan via Postcrossing. The card shows the decorations on the roof of his local temple. Doesn't it look great?! And check out the beautiful stamps on his postcard! My favorite is the one with the pink flowers... :)


#25 USA: Minneapolis, Minnesota

I received another postcard from my friend Barbara through SparkPeople the other day. She was so nice to think of me while she was traveling and picked this card up at the Minneapolis airport for me. This way, I get to cross another US state off my list. Thanks Barbara!


#24 Belarus: Minsk

A few days ago I got to cross another country off my list as Irina from Belarus sent me this postcard via Postcrossing. It shows a lovely view of Minsk and she even put a cute stamp on it!


#23 France: Nevers

Nenette from France sent me this postcard showing her hometown of Nevers via Postcrossing. She also chose a great stamp for it - isn't the dog cute?!


#22 USA: Tonto National Forest, Arizona

Thanks to Postcrosser Linda from Yuma, Arizona, I get to cross another US state off my list! This beautiful card shows Tonto National Forest during a summer storm. Don't you just love the colors?!
Linda also did great choosing stamps, I especially love the one with the green car about going green by sharing rides!


#21 Germany: Bremen - and an additional goal for my postcard project

After receiving my third postcard from Germany the other day, I've decided to add another goal to my postcard project. Previously, my goals were to a) collect a postcard from every country in the world and b) also collect postcards from all of the 50 states of the US. I've now added a third goal: to collect postcards from all of the 16 states (or Bundesländer as they are called in German) that make up Germany.

Cornelia from Bremen sent me this postcard through Postcrossing. Bremen is one of three cities in Germany that is both a city and a state. I recently visited Bremen as it is not too far from Hamburg and really enjoyed my stay there. It's definitely worth a visit! Cornelia also put a cute stamp on the card, enjoy!


#20 Netherlands: 's Hertogenbosch

Karin from the Netherlands sent me this pretty postcard via Postcrossing. It shows a very pretty castle in her hometown of 's Hertogenbosch. I also like the stamps she put on the card, especially the one of Queen Beatrix. Thanks Karin!


#19 Germany: Höri and Untersee, Baden-Wuertemmberg

I received my second postcard from Germany a few days ago. Postcrossing member Andrea lives close to Lake Constance and sent me this beautiful card showing some views from the charming towns in the area.


#18 USA: Hollywood, California

I found my third postcard from the US in my mailbox the other day! Emily from LA sent me this card, showing Hollywood Boulevard at night, via Postcrossing.


#17 Germany: Wuppertal, North Rhine-Westphalia

I recently received my first postcard from Germany! Nicci sent it to me from her hometown of Wuppertal via Postcrossing. She might actually send me another postcard because she accidently mailed the card that was intended for me to China and promised to send me a replacement. Thanks Nicci, I'm looking forward to hearing from you again!


#16 Netherlands

Postcrossing member Helena from the Netherlands sent me this cute postcard. Green is my favorite color and Hello Kitty is also pretty adorable. :) I also like the stamp she put on the card, so thanks Helena!


#15 China: Gongtan Town

Horyuji from China sent me this postcard via Postcrossing. It shows the old town of Gongtan in Chongqing, which is located in Southeast China near the Yangtze river.


#14 Canada

I received another postcards from my parents today. They are currently exploring Canada in an RV and sent me this postcard. My mom was so kind to put a polar bear stamp on it knowing they are my favorite animals. Thanks mom!


#13 USA: New York City, New York

Corinne, a fellow Postcrossing member from New Hampshire, sent me this card. The beautiful art card shows NYC, which is why I have decided to classify it as an entry for New York. Now I "only" have 48 more states to go. :)

#12 USA: Dubuque, Iowa

This postcard was sent to me by fellow SparkPeople member Barbara from Iowa with whom I have arranged a private swap. It shows a view of the Mississippi and is my first "real" postcard from the US. I said "real" because it's the first card from the US to actually show a place in the states. One down, forty-nine to go... Thanks Barbara, I can't wait for the other postcards you're going to send me!

#11 Australia: Bunbury

I received a few postcards over the weekend, so I really need to get caught up with posting them... First one up is from Julie in Australia.

I met Julie on SparkPeople, an awesome free diet website I joined to lose weight for my wedding. I met lots of great people on there and the support from the community is amazing. I posted a blog about my postcard project on there and Julie volunteered to help me out and send me a postcard. Don't you just love the view on that card?! The stamp is also very beautiful, thanks Julie!
