For the last 14 years I have absentmindedly collected postcards from my travels. I like collecting postcards because as much as I like taking photographs on my vacations, my shots couldn't come close to those postcard photos. I started collecting free postcards and then moved on to postcards sold at souvenir shops.   

Here are some photos of those free postcards which I collected mostly when I was in LA:  

These were recently given to me and the messages written are somehow related to travelling: 

These next ones are from some of the places I've visited, I wanted to take a photo of each postcard I have but it'll be too time consuming: 

And this last photo will be of the newest ones I got from my recent Baler trip: 

There are two places I've visited recently that disappointed me a tiny bit because I couldn't find a single postcard from any of the souvenir shops we went to. I wish the next time I visit Guimaras and Iloilo I'll be able to bring back a couple of postcards to add to my collection. I have one particular rule with my postcard collection, I have to be the one to buy it and it has to be bought at the place I've visited. I get a particular thrill looking at those postcards accumulate.
