WIN 6 Handwritten Postcards from Spain

Several years ago, I was fortunate enough to take a trip around the world.  It had long been an ambition of mine to set off from home and not return until I had travelled completely round the globe.  The trip took 90 days – and on each one of those days I sent a real, handwritten postcard to more than 80 different people.  I called it my “Around the World in 90 Postcards Challenge” – and at times it really did turn out to be a challenge!

In this age of digital technology, it´s increasingly rare to receive a postcard through your home letter box, isn´t it?  Well, I think that´s a pity as it always brings a smile to my face whenever I get one.  In fact, I use any postcards I receive as bookmarks when I am reading, to be constantly reminded of the good wishes sent from a friend or relative.

I would like to send my good wishes to one of you, though I won´t be posting 90 postcards this time – just 6.  If your name is picked, you (or someone of your choice) will receive one hand-written, real, snail-mail postcard each month for the next six months from wherever I am – which will probably be Spain – but you never know!

This is my way of saying A GREAT BIG THANK YOU to my followers – almost 1700 of you!  

If you would like to be entered into the proverbial hat, then you need to let me know in the comment section below.

Here´s how to have a chance of winning:

If you have clicked on the ¨Follow¨ button of this blog you will be entitled to one entry.  If you want to gain further entries by liking my new Facebook page or by following me on Twitter (the icons are in the right-hand sidebar of this blog page), then that’s up to you.

Just let me know in the comment section whether you are entitled to 1, 2 or 3 entriesand don´t forget – I can check if you cheat!  😉

Closing date for entries is midnight on June 30th (Central European time), and the winner will be announced a few days later.

I promise not to write on any of the postcards: ¨Weather here …. Wish you were lovely!¨

GOOD LUCK and don´t forget to let me know if you would like your name to be entered into the draw.

THIS CONTEST IS NOW CLOSED.  RESULTS WILL BE ANNOUNCED DURING THE FIRST FEW DAYS OF JULY.

  1. I would like to be entered once for next year… sorry missed this year… I have lived in Sevilla, Santiago de Compostella, and Barcelona… so feels like home. Don’t do twitter or facebook so only once don’t forget me!

  2. Of course I’d like to receive postcards in my mailbox! Letters, gifts, POSTCARDS are so fun to find in the midst of bills (ugh!) I’m not big on twitter or Facebook, though I do have accounts. So I am an avid follower. One, please. Beautiful postcards. 😉

  3. Nice one! Err, two and a half? Can’t remember if I follow on Twitter as well, but I think so.
    I absolutely love postcards (and I have some of those embroidered flamenco ones too) but even by my standards that’s a LOT of postcards, Marianne. Waiting to learn what your latest idea is. 🙂

  4. What a very lovely idea, I think there’s something very special (especially nowadays) about recieivng a hand written postcard. When I was little I used to love it when my grandparents mailed me one of those really naff postcards from Spain with the embroidered flamenco dresses 🙂

  5. I used to send tons of postcards… it was a great way to pass time waiting and travelling from place to place before all the gadgets we have today.to occupy our time. I haven’t sent some from Asia and they are pretty hard to find! I always bought a few fro myself too with great shots and a memory of my travels.
    Please enter me too 🙂 (Just 1)

  6. A stunning idea indeed Marianne and I certainly won’t mind receiving a lovely postcard from you every month. Your photo’s are so gorgeous! As you know I am following you, I LOVE all your posts (they don’t have a love button ;P) and I am following you on FB but I don’t do Twitter. Thanks for a lovely post and I do hope I am one of the winners. 😀 *big hugs*

  7. what a lovely idea! I think I get 2 counts – twitter and FB! I can’t remember the last time I had a postcard from anywhere – we are so ‘digital’ now aren’t we!?
    fingers crossed………!

  8. What a wonderful idea! I still love to receive (& send) postcards but I’ve found that there are fewer to be found in gift shops in these days of Instagram and the like.

      • There are hardly any to be found in this area (Extremadura) In the village closest to me (Alange) they only seem to have postcards of the virgin! – I have thought about making my own – but it would be a costly exercise, with no guarantee of selling them! I have never (and will never) use Instagram – but so many people just post a photo on Facebook or Twitter when they are travelling these days. I remember when I was touring Canada that I took advantage of the free stationery in the hotels and wrote a letter every day to a friend in the UK with a postcard enclosed – it was before social media (early 1990’s) – so I suppose you could say I was blogging even then!

        • Hey – it can be quite costly too, buying and sending loads of postcards – especially if they are travelling half way around the world. I know it cost me a fortune on my Around the World in 90 Postcards Challenge! Still loved doing it though 🙂

I´d love to hear from you, and much appreciate your comments. Thank you.
