How to connect to people-- all over the world #Postcrossing

I think every (typical) girl goes through that phase in her life where she has to write a letter to a "bestie" (my bestfriend and I dont call each other that though) and just write something! Kahit pinaka non sense thought ever, I think it's an untold rule... or that's what I think. I remember getting letters put inside the Tofi luk and Hersheys foil wrappers. And don't deny it, don't it feel good reading a letter na puro memories and pangbobola? And with our fast paced environment it's always nice to have something to look back and meron ka pa pang #throwbackthursday! Up until now, I still have that habit of writing letters to friends every once in a while. Birthdays, graduations or just sweet nothings. Though I barely get any!! *ehem ehem*

Luckily, just today, a friend of mine told me to google Postcrossing and that I would really appreciate it... and so I did and just imagine how giddy I got when I discovered what Postcrossing is!

 Based on their website (

  The goal of this project is to allow people to receive postcards from all over the world... The main idea is that: if you send a postcard, you will receive one back from a random Postcrosser from somewhere in the world. 

Isn't it cool?! My entire life I have only received two postcards, one from my dad, and just recently from my aunt. I have always been fascinated with this kinds of stuff. You know... the things that only happen on movies. You're a hopeless girl, with random dreams, meeting strangers, changing lives... pa-hipster ba! It's always a fantasy of mine! Hahaha walang pakialamanan.

I just think it's a great way to connect to people, find your inner "traveller", and explore! I just needed to share this one so if in any case you guys are interested, just register and start sending those postcards! :-)

PS this is not a sponsored post. F na f ko kasi mag endorse hahahaha! 

Another cool discovery: BookCrossing (

"the practice of leaving a book in a public place to be picked up and read by others, who then do likewise." The term is derived from, a free online book club which was founded to encourage the practice, aiming to "make the whole world a library."

À plus tard, (Im learning french!!!!)
