Less fun postcard topics include politics, religion and money. Please avoid them.

The postal system in each country is very different. While in some countries, postcards will come within just a couple of days, others could take weeks. The key takeaway being - don’t stress if your postcard has not been received as quickly as you hoped.
But if it takes longer than 30 days, get in contact with us at firstname.lastname@example.org to have the postcard resent (for free).
