24 Jun What Would Bee Say… About Travel Correspondence?
Posted at 16:55h in PushingPapers 0 Comments
As you are packing your bags this summer, don’t forget to throw in your favorite pen or two for sending letters and postcards back home. It’s a time-honored tradition, leaving lasting memories both for you as the writer and the recipient.
When I travel, I always send a postcard to family and friends, even if it arrives after the trip is over. There is something about getting a view of a wonderful spot one is vacationing in ~ almost like bringing them along. Also I love the foreign stamps and like to save the correspondence in a travel folder. I remember sitting on the terrace at the Gritti Palace, in Venice in the late afternoon, with a cup of coffee, overlooking the canal and writing my postcards.
Buying local cards is the best, but if you aren’t sure when and if they will be available, pack a set of notecards to bring with you. Then you can be sure you will have something beautiful to share your travel stories on and send your sentiments back home.
