Snail's Postcard Post

Thank You, World

Happy New Year! I thought today would be a good time to thank everyone who checks in on this blog, as it was just born in 2012. It’s something that became a big part of my year, and I can’t wait to share more postcards in the year ahead. 

I took a look at Postcard Post’s stats since it began, and was bowled over by how many countries viewers were from. Not only did it give this little snail the travel bug, but it heartened me right through my shell to see the interest people have in each other’s lands and cultures.

Snail’s Postcard Post has received views from the following countries:

    Dear Allison, I am thrilled to find my humble postcard to you on this blog! Happy 2013. Hope to see you and your mom soon. Hugs, Toni

    • Well, thanks again, because I love this postcard–my first from Thailand, one of the top places I’m itching to go. I’d never heard of the Akha people, and the account of the young woman on the motorbike gives such a sweet impression of Thai culture. Happy New Year to you too!
