If the idea of receiving a postcard does not entice you, think again. I’m still a newbie; I joined around June of this year. Roughly three months later, I received a parcel from one of my very first postcard recipients: Christina from Bielefeld, Germany.
Christina’s a fan of Hergé’s The Adventures of Tintin, like me. So when I read this on her Postcrossing profile, I immediately made my first Tintin purchase since the opening of the first Tintin Shop in the Philippines. It’s inside Fully Booked High Street’s building so you can’t miss it.

Christina also inserted a heartwarming handwritten love letter . This was her way of inviting me to become her pen pal. SO sweet of her and I am flattered to have been chosen by her as a pen pal.
“With love from Bielefeld” ❤
