:lol: I started to spell it that way, but it just seemed like an odd thing to do with the postcard right in front of me.

Cheery knows how to spell it properly, even if the postcard people don't. :lol:

Is it a case of French spelling vs German spelling vs Italian spelling vs Romansch spelling?

Helloooooooo, received lovely postcards from Bonnie, Tony & Chilli. Thank you, they made my day :)

I will get my slack self into gear and post some cards this week. I tried to find some that were a bit out of the ordinary but no such luck.

Jaz, thank you for the beautiful Redwoods Forest postcard! You are so lucky to have grown up nearby. :D

I was wondering if I could print off my trip photos, fill in the back, and send them like a post card?

The photo paper is fairly thick.

I've done that before, Con. I've also used watercolour paper, which looks really good. :)

Okay!

We saw some amazing things in some of the national parks we visited.

Thank you Tony for the gorgeous view of Cardiff Castle. I knew nothing of its history. It's a similar story to Bowes Museum near here.....insanely wealthy people built a French chateau near the River Tees!
Bonnie.....yours arrived yesterday! Even with a nine hour time difference that's good going since you posted it on Friday. Beautiful card of Redwoods. Thank you :D

I loved your card chilli, it's fun to learn about new areas.

If anyone would like a postcard from me, just PM me. These will all be pictures of our trip, which I took.

I will also post some of them on the forum.
