My 40th card went to Austria - another country I hadn't sent to before, or at least, not officially. :-) Elfriede appreciates any card she gets and has never received a postcard she didn't like. :-) I sent her an art card, and I sent it in an envelope so that she could use the stamp to add to her stamp collection ... because like me she would never remove a stamp from a postcard, only from an envelope. ;-)
I sent the card on New Year's Eve and it had 1,351 kilometers to travel, a distance it covered in five days to arrive in Vienna on January 5th.
