Greetings from the old days, of no internet, of relentless travelers who sent in postcards from different corners of the globe. When we couldn’t use Skype, Viber, Whatsapp or Facebook to instant message any of our relatives and friends back home that we have arrived safe and sound. Not that travel has lost its glamour in the meantime, but it has somehow lost a slice of authenticity, and the experience frequently comes with the haunting danger that one would end up exploring only the hot touristic zones with copycat souvenirs of only the most famous of landmarks. It’s also less often that we will mail postcards to each other these days.
This small selection of vintage postcards is ready to induce nothing but some nostalgia for the old way of traveling. Thanks Gabi for the compilation!
