The World On My Doorstep

An ever-expanding postcard blog

A First From Vietnam

on December 6, 2012

VietnamRiceTerracesI received a lot of cards today so this is the last one I’ll upload for now (hopefully will catch up with myself at the weekend) but just had to show this spectacular card from Ann in Vietnam. It shows Sapa rice terraces which she says she hasn’t visited yet herself, but (for obvious reasons) loves the cards from there. It really looks amazing! Ann also tells me that when she opened her postcrossing account, she met an unexpected challenge – buying stamps! She didn’t realise that no local post offices sell international stamps so in order to send her cards overseas she has to go on adventures to Saigon, the nearest city, an hour away from where she lives! So it seems her card has a real story behind it. Love it!
