Lottery WIn - Sri Lanka

Gayan was offering cards to the first 10 people to comment on his Facebook post and I was one of the lucky 10. He sent this card showing leopards at Yala National Park in Sri Lanka. Ayubowan translates to "Hello/Goodbye" and more, kinds of reminds me of "Aloha".

Nalini and I have swapped in the past. She was cleaning through some of her cards, had this one and thought of me. How thoughtful! The view shows an aerial view of Singapore's Chinatown. Great card - thanks Nalini!

Greetings from Poland - Direct Swap with Monika

Monika replied to a post I made on Facebook looking for PostalLove cards. She did not have the current version of the Poland card but had the first edition. I didn't even know there were more than one version so was happy to swap for this retired "collectible". Now to hunt for the 2014 version, which might not be easy as it has been sold out for awhile. It will be hard enough to find people to swap with as the new countries are introduced if they get revised too I might be sunk! Thank you Monika for the swap!

Lucky Eileen vacations in Majorca every year. Lucky us, she thinks of my and the kids when she is away. This year she sent us each a card which are all wonderful. My card shows the stunning views of Cap Formentor, Will's is a silhouette of a bull which she writes are everywhere and Meghan's is a sweet girl in traditional dress, literally! A perfect trio, thank you Eileen!
