Postcards - do you still send them and do you like receiving them?

Postcards - do you still send them while you are travelling? Or do you just text and email? I think it is so much more fun to receive a postcard in the mail. Sure it is often hard to read the scribbled message of the holiday maker but I think it is a lovely way to let someone know you are thinking of them whilst enjoying a fantastic holiday. What is your preferred mode of communication whilst travelling?

I usually just text, call or use social networking sites.

I've never sent a postcard as I don't like the lack of privacy that goes with it but it's always nice to receive something.
Yes and yes!
When I go on holiday, I print all the addresses I want to send cards to on a couple of sheets of address labels, which makes sending postcards much easier. And I love receiving them too! They look lovely lined up on my mantelpiece and the occasional really good postcard will be kept on display for a long time. They are also a good way to have a geography conversation with my son - we talk about the country it's been sent from and look it up in the atlas.
You sound just like me! I have pre-printed address labels before when I have had a lot of postcards to send. Makes it so much easier.
We received a postcard just last week, but since we don't go on holiday, we don't send them.
I would like to receive a postcard as something tangible, but in the days of SMS and email they are a dying breed.

I buy some over 90years old, with violets on and little forget-me-nots.

I think a postcard is one of the lovely old time things we can do.

Sure, it makes the other still at home ''wish they were there'' :)
But, they have been around a long long time, and I do hope they continue to be.Just a great little bit of info, and fun.
I rarely receive them and I have never sent one.

We send them to our mothers who are both in their eighties. It is what they would have done. Then we send them to our grandchildren, because kids just love getting their own mail. I love postcards and have a collection of antique cards from my hometown, many more than a hundred years old.
I love sending postcards back to friends or rellies when I go on holidays
