In august, I posted about the longest letter I've ever written (HERE). It was 40 pages long letter in a notebook (20 pages written on both sides). I received Niina's reply to that letter and it was 80 pages long!! O_O
I really enjoyed reading it! I love long letters so much... Now I'm writing her a reply, but I'm quite sure that I can't write as much as she did. But I started writing to a notebook again - I think it is impossible to reply just a few pages this time... :'D
I met Niina for the first time ever in Kuopio yesterday. And she told me she is going to write 3 notebooks next time..... XD
Today I took a bus to the city planning to buy 0,10€ stamps for postcards. Then I found these first day covers! It was surprising, because I haven't seen any FDC's in Kajaani before. I always buy first day covers in Santa Claus post office in Rovaniemi.
Christmas stamps are so beautiful this year. ^_^ Especially the reindeer one!
I haven't posted here for over two weeks now... I've been very busy and I haven't received many postcards during that time. My husband started in a new job a week ago and it has taken time to get used to the new working hours, evening/night shifts..
Anyway, I received these cards from my friends! Konnevesi card from Niina and Kittilä from Laura. ^_^ I'm very grateful that they look for city cards for me on their trips.
These pictures aren't great - I had to take them with my phone in a bad light.
One of my first foreigner friends ever, Sander, is on exchange in Albania now. I think we have known each other for over 10 years now! :D I asked him to send me a postcard from there because it is quite "rare" country on postcrossing, there are only 11 postcrossers at the moment. And he sent me this card, I'm so happy about it. ^__^
The card arrived quite fast, in 5 days! We both expected it would be a bit slower... :)
Post of Finland released "coat of arms" stamps on friday 7th October. I received 9 stamps from 7 municipalities. Surprisingly, the stamps I sent to myself that day, arrived slower than ones that were sent from other cities. :'D
Special thanks to my penpal Niina, she visited 3 cities that day buying and sending me those stamps! Her brother sent me one from Jyväskylä on his lunch break. Also my mom sent me one from Rovaniemi. ^_^
I received these cards during last week and this week. I also received a very very special postcard a few days ago. A german man on postcrossing wanted to thank me for an aurora card i sent to him. :) I will post about it tomorrow in the morning. ^_^
Hello! ^_^ Yesterday I realised that I posted outgoing postcards last time in May... Over three months ago! I had a little break on writing postcards (again!) in summer.. I don't know why, it just happened. :)
I requested 6 addresses and the postcards will go to: Finland, Lithuania, Turkey, USA, UK and The Netherlands. Not so many usual countries this time.
Niina is one of my closest finnish penpals and we have been writing letters over three years now. We are talking on whatsapp and facebook almost daily.
One evening we got a crazy idea, let's write extremely long letters to notebooks! But not like sending a notebook back and forth... I wrote a letter to a notebook which means 20 pages (written on both sides) long letter. :'D And wow, it was a huge work!
I wrote that letter for two weeks, a couple of hours every morning and sometimes a few sentences before going to sleep at night. It was very hard to write the last pages so I asked my husband to write greetings to Niina and he did! Haha, so surprising...
I was so excited to send the notebook to Niina quickly, so I totally forgot to take pictures of it! I had to ask Niina to take a few pics. :)
How long is the longest letter you've ever written? :)
I promised to write this post almost two months ago, but I totally forgot it. We spent a week in Rovaniemi in the beginning of July. My parents were in their summer cottage that time so we could stay in their home. ^^ Here are a few pictures from our trip!
Our geocaching map of Finland looks like this after that week!
