Travelling Souvenir: UK

The fifth postcard I received was from Joanna – a 21 year old med student in the University of Bristol who was from Poland but is now residing in the UK. I was trying to figure out what the objects were in the postcard but stopped after a few agonizing minutes because it was silly. I scolded myself to stop over-analyzing things.

UK Postcard

I figured (there I go again – analyzing) that since she loved to travel and made it a habit to bring something back with her from all her travels, this postcard was a perfect visual representation of that because it comprised of all kinds of travel memorabilia like stamps, airport codes, signs, etc.

What I love most about the postcards that I receive are the short notes of the people who sent them. Despite of being continents away, it still amazed me to discover similarities with a complete stranger. Like Joanna, I too love collecting souvenirs from all the places that I have visited. It can be anything – a plate, a sea shell, a doll, a painting, a coin or a shirt. Our obsessions are different though. She is obsessed with soft toys which she found scary considering that she will be a doctor soon. I thought otherwise. I think it’s cute and can be quite helpful if she decides to be a pediatrician. I know scary, and obsession with soft toys is not one of them.

Thank you for sharing, (soon-to-be) Dr. Joanna!
