Postcard: How to write a postcard?


Postcards are sent mostly, so they can shortly inform about trip progress and give a proof of remembering about recipient. You can that way (with help of occasional card) submit a holiday, name-day and congratulate wishes.

First post card was sent in Austria in 1869.

  • use key words, not a detailed description;

  • put a little character in your text;

Dear Anna,

I’m at Athens now. Greece is beautiful and very sunny. I saw many great places. Biggest impression on me did an Acropol. Details after return. I’m sad that you’re not here, you would be hugely impressed.
