[Editor’s Note: Just yesterday, Explorater Heena Shah blogged about her Postcrossing adventures and how it allows anyone to receive postcards (real ones, not electronic) from random places in the world. In today’s continuation of the same, she reveals even more of her personal postcard collection from around the world

Once you sign up on Postcrossing.com, you get a random address and ID. You post a real postcard with the ID and once they receive it, they register the ID. Then someone else will send you one in a similar manner.
Official cards: Postcards sent or received with IDs.
Direct swaps : Postcards swapped through Facebook or Direct messaging on Postcrossing.com
Postage value for printed postcards to be sent abroad : Rs 12
Postage value for printed postcards to be sent in India : Rs 6
Minimum postage value for envelopes to be sent abroad : Rs 25
Minimum postage value for envelopes to be sent in India : Rs 5
Try to stick special stamps (with years mentioned on them).
Don’t throw away the envelopes. Either you can save them or to separate stamps from them, watch out for the next article
