Postcards to Myself

So what souvenirs did you get yourself? When you’re carrying  what you need, you really don’t want to carry unnecessary things. So instead of trying to buy something from each spot I did something different for myself. I wrote myself a postcard from different cities. I was even nerdy and addressed it as Future Rachel (How I Met your Mother reference) I got the idea from a book I was reading. I forgot the title of the book, but it was really interesting. It was about a woman traveling in her thirties. So to preserves her memories she wrote herself postcards, and I thought that was the neatest idea ever. So I did it myself. I think a few got lost because when I returned home some were missing. But it was a nice surprise to read them, and what I told “future self”.  I thought it was a fun way to keep these memories (I mean I also have the travel journal); but who doesn’t love getting snail mail? Even if it isn’t till months later.

Am I the only one who dose something like this?

I hope this encourages you to get creativity while traveling! Bon Voyage!
