I’m back from Hong Kong! I was so excited for this trip because it’s my first out of the country trip this year and the first stamps on my shiny new passport (I got it renewed late last year). Also, it’s my first time in Hong Kong. I haven’t done a Postcard Love post in a while and I thought it would be nice to do one about my trip. Let’s start with these free ad postcards from our hostel, I included a map of Hong Kong in the picture:
Here are a bunch of touristy postcards that I bought and sent while I was there:
We went to Hong Kong Disneyland and it was a lot of fun! Wish we got to spend more than a day there because we weren’t even able to explore the whole place. I wanted to get a lot of souvenirs but they were expensive so I only ended up getting a postcard set and some of those coin press souvenirs. Also, I thought it was great that visitors could send postcards inside Disneyland – too bad they didn’t have special edition Disney stamps to match the postcards.
Here’s a closer look at the coins:
And the Disney postcards inside the set:
When I got back from the trip, I found these lovely postcards waiting for me at home:
One from my friend when she traveled to Cambodia, one from Australia care of my good friend Nomes of Inkcrush and two from Scotland! Here are the stamps:
Guess who sent the Scottish postcards? They’re from one of my favorite authors ever, Elizabeth Wein! I think this is the first time that I’ve received a postcard from an author. Yay, I now have her signature:
Maybe I should insert these postcards in my copies of her books? I also dropped by a bookstore on our last day in Hong Kong but I thought I’d come up with a separate post for that. Feel free to leave a comment and let me know if you’ve received any snail mail recently.
