From Yoyo in Taiwan

Yoyo chose to go cute and quirky with the postcard she sent me from Taiwan.

I have no idea what the text here says and she didn’t translate for me. Anyone who knows, please feel free to comment! It almost looks like a holiday postcard, but I can’t be sure.

Either way, it is adorable! Thanks Yoyo!

To Ellie in Taiwan

One of the things Ellie wanted in the postcards sent to her was images and stories of the sender’s village or town. I had a few reprints of vintage postcards from my hometown, so I thought that she would enjoy that!

This church was named after U.S. President McKinley, who grew up in the same town I grew up in. I don’t think this church is still around. There are historical markers around the town where buildings used to stand, but many are no longer there.

I hope she enjoys this little snippet of my hometown!

From Rachel in Taiwan

I got this card from a Tag on Postcrossing. It came from Taiwan and was sent to me because I had added it to my favorites on my profile. To be honest, I had forgotten it was in my favorites, but as soon as I looked at this postcard, I remembered why!

It is beautiful! Rachel wrote on the back, “It shows a lovely harbour township which is very close to my home.” It must be showing a festival or similar because there are a lot of people and fireworks going off in the background. It looks like a really neat time! Thanks Rachel!
