Hey there!

Oh! My! God! I still can’t believe how often my mailbox was happy this week. I got … wait for it … 20 (!!!) postcards from Europe, North America and Asia. I feel so blessed haha!

Actually, I received my August stats from Postcrossing this week and it said that I sent 40 postcards this August, which was my all-time record. I received 31 postcards that month. I’m trying to top that in September 😀

But nooow, I’d like to show you the cards that found their way to my home this week. As they’re so many, I sorted them by country and continent.

Last, but not least, my postcards from my own country Germany: on top right you can see a map postcard of Rhine river. I think it’s beautiful. On top left you can see an historical building in the city of Lüdenscheid. The two cards on bottom are both from German islands. The left one shows women wearing traditional costumes on the island of Föhr. The right card shows the historical district of the town of Sassnitz on the island of Rügen.
