Travel Postcards From Around The World – Old & New

I read an interesting article in our local 📰 newspaper a while back in the travel section.
It was on how – Postcards Tell A Personal Story.
It really hit home, as I’ve always collected …

🌺 Travel Postcards 🌺

from Around The World 🌎 and we still do today.

When traveling to new destinations, we always like to 📬 mail a postcard home to ourselves
and to close family members.

Who doesn’t like receiving a travel postcard in the 📬 mail, from a friend or
family member? It’s so personal and a great keepsake as well! 😎 For us, it’s just a
little souvenir from our travels with a picture and unique 📨 postmarked stamp included.

Travel Postcards For Memories That Last A Lifetime

Old Waikiki Hawaii Postcard

I’ve collected various postcards over the years, from travels that I was lucky enough to
experience as a young boy. I’ve included a few in this post, from my first international
travel experience to 🌴 Hawaii from Canada.

They are so cool to look back on today, recalling those memorable trips taken years ago!

My wife and I started 📮 mailing postcards to ourselves back in the late 1980’s.
It’s fun to read what we wrote on the back to ourselves, about our adventures back then.

There’s also some of the neat looking older postmarked stamps as well on them. Below, are a few
of our older postcards we’ve collected over the years.



Digital Cameras & Cellphones For Travel

Vintage Waikiki Beach Postcard

Today, the majority of us who are not professional 📸 photographers, travel with our
compact digital cameras and/or 📱 cellphones, for storing or sending out our photos.

But how many of us actually take the time to prepare a photo album from our {digital images}
that we’ve taken? ❓ Or even have any printed for a keepsake, to look back at years down
the road.

I would venture to say – not many of us.

Have you ever lost precious images taken with your cellphone or digital camera? ❓

Well, I know we have in the past, especially not knowing how they just disappeared when you went searching for them, or transferred them onto your new phone. 🤨

We have stacks of old photo albums saved over the years, that were taken before the digital camera
and cellphone age. They are so neat to drag out ever so often and share with others, taking a stroll down memory lane.

Many of our postcards are included in these albums as well. 📖 



Send A Postcard & Print Your Favorite Travel Memories

Why not give it a try the next time you’re traveling to a new exciting destination. Send yourself
and someone close to you – a postcard.

Take the time and actually personalize a postcard for yourself, along with that special person
in your life. If you send someone a postcard and especially to one who loves to travel,
chances are they’ll send you one too!



Visit The Local Post Office

Kanchana Buri Postcard

Visit the post office if you can in your travels and engage in conversation with the locals.
You’ll be surprised how interested they are to know where you’re from, sparking at times a
wonderful conversation!

For example, I always make a point to ask locals where their favorite restaurant is.
We’ve discovered some amazing affordable eateries over the years, by just asking a local.

Years later, when you look back at your postcards and printed photographs, you’ll be so glad
you took the time and effort to do so!

Postcards appear to be making a come back, which is great to see. It’s a way for you to tell
a brief personal story of your exciting adventure. So do yourself a favor and send a postcard
or two on your next journey!
