Picture of How to get postcards from around the world and make friends too!
How would you like to get really cool postcards from around the world from real people? This instructable walks you through the simple process of using PostCrossings a great website that connects post card senders from around the world.

Step 1: Join PostCrossings

First you need an account on PostCrossings http://www.postcrossing.com.

This is free, but you will need an email account (not unlike this fine site).

As a personal note, I suggest you mention your hobbies and the kinds of cards you would like to receive on your profile. This helps people sending you a card to select a card that best fits you interests. I also suggest a face picture, but understand that some people feel uncomfortable with that.

That's fascinating, and highly commended in this age where handwritten messages are getting few and far between. I shall wave this at #1 Son, and also mention it to my pupils at school.
