“No matter where I might be I am thinking of you, therefore I am sending you this postcard” – that’s what the postcard is for me. And I believe for my 22 years long life I have sent over 200 postcards from around the world to dozens of people. How cool is that to be in Europe and receive a postcard from Virgin Islands or Costa Rica?
Two days ago I received a Christmas postcard from my high school fellow and it indeed brought back all the wonderful memories of my gap year journey. It is not only about where do you travel, but mostly how you remember that place. World is a magical place with so many secrets to explore, so keep on going and never stop!
Right now I am stretched between UK and USA, and will remain being in-between for couple of months more. If you would like to receive a postcard from me – with the biggest pleasure I will send a reason to smile to you! Let me know, facebook me (Alisa Sibrova) or let me know by dropping an email at firstname.lastname@example.org
Below you will find showcase consisting of postcards from my own collection from the places that I have been to. Enjoy!

With NaNoWriMo out of the way I finally have some time to create. For sure, there is still a long way to go with my novel: proof-reading and editing. But at least now I can get back to the things I enjoy as much as writing: creating art. Okay, I meant to do another … Continue reading Late night art: The Bouquet
For days it is the first time ever that I have seen it rain in Nevada. No doubt, after spending almost a year in rainy England it reminds me of the city of my heart – Manchester. All the good times that I had, all the friends that I’ve made, all the life lessons … Continue reading The city of my heart
I must admit: nostalgia is not my element. But, surprisingly for myself, today I was all about it. I was going through old journals and diaries (who does not have them?!), postcards and what not. Finally I found a box with fridge magnets, carefully collected from all over the world. I swear, I … Continue reading I was here: everywhere
You might think it is not big of advice, you might think I am crazy, as well. Truth is: it helps me to write and I feel the NEED for sharing it! (So bad, it itches!) 🙂 Couple of days ago I found myself sitting by the swimming pool and grasping for words. Where to … Continue reading Writing advice: NaNoWriMo Day #9
