The Art of a Postcard
If you are traveling any time soon consider dropping a few postcards in the mail. We have become so programmed to post widespread Facebook status updates that the intimate, snail mail messages are becoming extinct. Sending a postcard connects the recipient with your experience and lets them know you are thinking about them. They can be fun to write and always a pleasure to receive. Plus you can't physically save a FB post or hang it on the refrigerator...
Also, postcards make a great travel journal. Send one to yourself each day with a few notes about your experiences and the sites you visited. Once home the postcards help you to re-live your trip over and over. And you can save them in your photo album (another artform that needs to be revived!)
