Do you send postcards to friends and family?

Write because you want to, not because you have to.

Personally, I thought sending postcards was quite outdated, till I travelled back in December and realised that they are a great way to get in touch with family and friends and let them know how you're doing.

Do you still use postcards to send interstate/overseas? How often do you send them?

It's a old but nice idea.

I hope we don't see the end of it, and I always ask people to send me a postcard.
One reason is that it shows we are following their special time away, from us.
I do send them, if travelling....plus it's to let them all know 'all is well'.
In the days gone by, if people didn't get a postcard....something was wrong!
They just couldn't always pick up a phone(I'm talking about 70 years ago).In those days travel was a big deal..... and also just making the call was a cost issue.
You're absolutely right! I love letting people know that we're well by using the traditional methods of letters and postcards - it just feels a lot more special than the digital technology we have sadly grown accustomed to in today's world.

Yes. It is a lovely reminder of a journey to pick out a really nice postcard and send back. At my old work we were all great travelers and would send postcards back to the office along. We kept a wall full of them and it was lovely to see the places everyone had visited. I remember getting a jolt once as I was looking at the wall and noticing a few that I had sent years before. It was a lovely surprise!
Yes I do but not as regularly.
Yes lots of them.
I haven't sent a postcard in ages, but I love receiving them.
It's just that I am too lazy to send them.
I like to when I'm travelling but I haven't done that in a while. My daughter loves receiving postcards from her grandparents when they are away. She can't read yet but she likes the pictures and getting mail addressed to her.
When away, yes I still do. It's lovely. It is funny how they receive them after you arrive back home sometimes...
I'll organise to do so when I go to Europe in July this year.

My friends tend to make a Facebook event where you can check back to the comments people have made stating their addresses, which is a great way to have all the info in one place and not take up space in your luggage.
