I love sending and receiving travel postcards. I think it is a lovely and thoughtful act of kindness to send a little travel postcard to your friends and family. Since I started blogging in 2015, sending travel postcards to the audience of my previous community blog was an awesome feeling. I feel that postcards are more personal than a shout out on social media pages. Emails and online greetings are quick and easy, but something special about the personal touch of sending a postcard. I always like to have an authentic connection and engagement to the fantastic readers and...Read More

Home for a dual citizen: Home is where the cat is! As a dual citizen, I sometimes find it confusing on how I will introduce myself regarding my nationality.
