When did you get a normal postcard? We live in a modern world. We get a lot of SMS messages and e-mails every day. But there is an interesting idea. Its name is Postcrossing.

Postcrossing is an online project. People send postcards. They get postcards from all the world. These people are Postcrossers.

Postcrossing is easy. You register on the website. You write your address there. You can get 1 or 5 addresses from the website at the beginning. You send postcards to these addresses. Every postcard has a number. You write the number on the postcard. You wait. The people get your postcards. They write the number on the website. And somebody gets your address. You wait for a postcard.

You never know what address you will get. And you don’t know who will send you a postcard.

You don’t pay for this project. You only buy postcards.

Now there are more than 242,000 people from 198 countries on this website.

This video is a manual for Postcrossing.
