A postcard a day, from a large collection of postcards received, sent to me by me, and/or collected over the last 30+ years.

One of my college students friends sent me this card on one of her many excursions around Europe while she is spending a semester in Copenhagen. I truly appreciate the efforts she made to find a location and a postcard of said location that she could be pretty sure I didn't already have She was right on that score. What she might not know is what a huge rugby town Perpignan is, and she's a rugby player herself!
I've been sending and receiving postcards for over 30 years. When I travel, I send a postcard to myself, even if it's just a one day business trip. I badger my friends to send me postcards when they go on trips. I collected postcard ads from those free postcard dispensers, that used to be found near bathrooms and phone booths in public places around the world. I have a scrapbook of postcards, sent between 1902 and 1905 to my great grandfather from an aunt, who appears to have been traveling extensively around Europe. First post: July 5, 2009
