From one blogger to another…

A Mindful Traveler

On a day where I was frantically busy with work and last minute packing before we were to leave for our Singapore holiday, I unexpectedly received this heartwarming postcard from the lovely Ishita from Italophilia.

To stop and enjoy the moment when reading her personal and special message, was engaging. A few minutes out of my crazy day to enjoy the “old world charm” (as Ishita would say…) of reading a hand written postcard, was exactly what I needed!

So thank you my friend. Thank you for your support and your friendship and thank you for the lovely postcard and insight about the Amber Fort, Jaipur, India. I hope one day to visit your beautiful country too.  #Italophiliapostcards

  1. Great message. There is nothing better than getting a “real” postcard in the post. That means a lot of thought went into picking the postcard, buying the stamp, writing the message. So much easier to just send a quick email, right! She’s a true friend. 🙂

  4. It is lovely receiving something through the post and two bloggers have been kind enough to send me cards. Both came at the most opportune moments when I needed a little lift … it was as though there was ethereal kismet at work 🙂 xx

  6. What a little treat! Despite the convenience of the modern-world email system, nothing compares to receiving a hand-written letter/postcard at your doorstep. Hope you have a wonderful trip in Singapore. xx
