Free Postcards From the Edge

Postcards. They are often the bane of my existence while travelling. Either they are too ugly, old or expensive, or they are nowhere to be found at times you would really love to send them, like last years La Tomatina.

Even if I find the right postcard, have the right currency, there is the address book to dig up, the stamp to buy and the post box to find. Such a palaver!! Thanks to kirtsy, I have found a website that will send 2 free postcards for you for FREE per day. You can even upload your own photos to make sure the postcard is the perfect shot.

Two catches for this, hippopost will only send postcards to Canada or the United States, and they will insert a small ad on the back of your card. (Hey, someone has to pay for this). If you are feeling frugal and have friends in North America, why not give it a try?
