Scan cards quickly
To all those who are too lazy to scan their cards (because it's a long and annoying process) - here is an app that can help you. It's called Google PhotoScan, and it transforms a paper picture into an image on your phone in seconds. I understand that it deals with subjects such as reflections, angles, perspective, and so on. Both Android and iPhone are supported. Here is a link to the Android version. Very much recommended!

just to share

;) bought in our local "tropical museum" .. or "museum for tropical affairs" .. or.. whatever
nice detail: the museum shop is located behind the ticket check...
so basically one only can buy their special cards (and other stuff) after paying the entrance fee...
even for dutch ways that's quite unusual

National Postcard

A great idea for the postcard contents, spotted on Facebook.
I just might steal it, with the obvious localisations of course...

fantasy map card...
when i found the card i was all.. owwww details...
and people love 'map' cards. . so..
bought it.
(not thinking anything funny that a manga/comicbook store sold map-cards.. it's amsterdam.. anything can and will happen here)

this morning i thought of the card.. wanted to write it..
and checked if the street where i live was on it.
when i found out the ' map' was mirrorerd... or so i thought at first...
the canals are supposed to be on the left side of central station.. but in mirrorerd or tillted way .. that would make sense only if the names were right.

check it out.. and feel free to google a real amsterdam map next to it..

;) special genre?

Freedom at last
As part of the Passover holiday (in the spirit of freedom and liberty), I made the following resolution: I will not write more than one postcard per day. In recent months, as the simultaneous traveling cards quota has risen steadily, I found myself sitting with stacks of postcards to send. Too expensive, too time consuming, and the quality goes down. If anyone else here feels like me, enslaved to this hobby, give it a thought. Are you the owner of your eligible quota, or does it own you?

expiration quotation
When people ask.. i point out 2-4% of what i sent out will get lost.

today i started counting..
at the moment 51 cards are on my list as "expired" , meaning, travelling about a year.
since may last year, so about the same period, 1207 of my cards registered.
i know.. not exact science.. but indeed.. slightly over 4%

juicy side note.
that card i sent out exactly a year ago, was sent to someone who's been not online for 4 months.
(the one to Germany's nr 1 postcrosser expired as well.. so activaty is not allways the key factor)

Postcrossing explosion
I have been getting many many official Postcrossing cards lately. Currently the card balance is 23 (!) in favor of the Received. This has never happened before. Anyone else sees this happening? Are there tons of new users, with nobody to send cards to?

Sorry guys, no more scans
After having to scan 5-8 cards every single day (incoming and outgoing) I decided this has to stop. It is taking way too much time, and it is as if I am enslaved to this process. From now, only extraordinary cards will be scanned. The rest will be left to the recipient/sender. Do you guys scan?

Like winning the lottery...
What are the chances of one small-country member sending to another member from the same country?
Almost non-existent, but still it happened (2nd time for me).
It took the card 8 days to cover the distance of 76km. That's about 400 meters an hour. I could have delivered it faster on foot :)
