When my friends or family would ask me what I wanted as a souvenir from the place they were about to visit, I would just answer "A postcard!" It's such a great memory! Looking at them just reminds me of the foods I ate, the way the place made me feel - it just really helps me to remember that place! Until this day, I continue to collect them and I store them in a postcard album, it shows me the picture on one side and what is written on the other. Sometimes I use them as bookmarks....when I run into a postcard and I read the back, it really puts a smile on my face!
