My first ever sent card went to Georgiana in Dublin, Ireland. She is #1 on the list of Irish members - she has sent more cards than any other Irish Postcrosser, and her cards have also travelled the farthest from Ireland. Kinda cool to get her as my first recipient. :-)
I sent the card on October 5th. It travelled 1,269 kilometers to get to Georgiana, and the trip took 3 days; it arrived on October 8th.
