OFFICIAL Card - England

Radek lives in Manchester, England (across the Atlantic Sea...couldn't resist!) and sent this great stadium card in Barcelona, Spain. With a seating capacity at just under 100,000 it is huge!

Sometimes the travel times on cards make you scratch your head and wonder. The postmark on this card is clear - March 10 and it arrived on the 23rd. But it "travelled" for 46 days as my address was drawn February 5. I know not everyone writes card right away and for myself it can sometimes be 2-3 days from when I draw an address to actually getting it in the mail, but a month? How long does it take you typically to mail a card?

  1. My husband is a football fan, so when we visited Barcelona, in February this year, we had to see a match. I loved it, however I am not much of a fan... It was really amazing to see the stadium almost full, well, it looked like that. I would love to go there again :)

  2. I try and get my cards in the mail within 24 hours....less usually. I write them at night, mail them the next afternoon. If the weather is bad, I might not get them out in the mail the next day, but I don't wait.

    Could it be their first card to you didn't get registered, so they decided to re-send?

    1. You know I thought that, however it doesn't look like he ever signed in again after the day he drew my address - weird?!?!
