So I went to London on Saturday last week, to attend an International Postcrossing meet-up. I had a great time - good company, the weather was nice, there were lots of postcards.. what more can you ask? :P
The meet-up was originally going to take place a week earlier but had to be postponed because of the Royal Wedding. I don't mind, we got better weather now at least. :) It was really warm and sunny, so un-British, lol! There were people from the UK, Ireland, the Netherlands, Belgium, Germany, Switzerland and Romania there. It was good to meet old friends, and some new faces as well. Everyone was really nice and friendly, and Steve particularly was super helpful, so special thanks to him! I wish I could've stayed longer but I had to leave early in order to catch my coach. Grrrr... My photos from the meet-up are here.
I sent a bunch of cards to friends, some of them have already arrived and hopefully the rest of them will arrive soon, too. Last year I really wished I would've sent a card for myself as well, so this year I made sure I had one for myself. I didn't want a cliched London postcard so I chose this one from The Caravan Gallery. Their postcards are hilarious, and pretty accurate as well. :D
A couple of people had to leave early but here are the signatures of most of the people who were there. I used an older stamp to mail this card. It's from a set of 10 black & white stamps issued in 2001, depicting cats and dogs.
