Snail's Postcard Post

Thanks for 2014

Dear Snail Mail Fans,
At the end of Snail’s Postcard Post’s third year, I am once again in awe of how many places you all have checked in from, especially with the blog being in English. I’m sad the site still doesn’t seem to be accessible in China, but I’m thrilled to have received my first views from a dozen other countries. Not only did the marks of your visits give this little snail the travel bug, but I’m filled with hope to see the interest people have in each other’s lands and cultures, the heart of what postcards are about. 

Here’s the list of all the places snail mail fans visited from in 2014, with accompanying postcards, of course!
