Another Hip Travel Tip From The Jet Set Chick

Now, I know some people think postcards are for losers, but then again, they never got a postcard from The Jet Set Chick or her jet setting little brother. (I still have the ones he sent from Europe when his former employer sent him there....they are extremely amusing viewpoints from the bottom of a beer glass. A very big, very potent beer glass, no less. Compared to him, I'm an amateur.)

But postcards can be quite the pain in the ass for the traveler. I found one way to make it a bit easier.

Get some sticky labels from an office supply store. Write the addresses of those you wish to grace with your on-the-spot goofy reviews, obnoxious bragging or just flat out "having a great time, you sorry piece of $#@*!" messages on the labels, and leave the address book at home.

Advantages: 1) You aren't going to lose your address book, 2) They probably take up a lot less space than your address book, and 3) You can speed up the time it takes to dash off a "Damn, I'm stuck in a tropical paradise again" note back home by affixing one of the labels to the addressee part of the postcard.

And of course, if you are traveling in the states, be sure to get postage before you leave. That's one less thing to worry about. (Don't buy any postcards overseas if they won't sell you the stamps, too. It sucks to have to hunt down a post office when you could be sampling the local brews!)

    Hi cb!

    Yeah, every now and then I get a good idea! Hope your cousin can use it!

    I've always liked getting your postcards, K. We use them as language flashcards for our kids. ("...and this one is a volcano...")
