I'll send you a postcard...
In the age of technology reaching out to a loved while away on holiday has become all too convenient. Sure, convenience is a wonderful thing but nothing beats a sentimental thought. Next time you wander into the gift shop to purchase some cheesy last minute souvenir's pick up a postcard. Yes, I'm sure you find the idea of this to be even cheesier than the basic souvenir but it goes well and beyond the saying "It's the thought that counts."
Aside from being my go-to photo prop, post cards have become something I continuously appreciate with each trip that I take. My best friend is the reason behind my beloved postcard tradition and because of her I've grown to adore the act of sending and even more so receiving postcards. I mentioned in a previous post how cool it is to have certain travel traditions that truly mean something to you. Sending postcards is by far the coolest to me and I think you should give it a try!
Collect all the addresses of your friends & family prior to your departure
Always travel with a pen lol
Purchase postcards at the beginning of your trip that way they get sent out ASAP
Pick out a cool card & write a cute message
Stamps are usually available at either the gift shop or hotel front desk
the hotel front desk also will mail out your postcards free of charge ;)
