this postcard used to hang in my first flat in berlin next to a postcard from my hometown. dear mimi and basti, this one goes out to you – thank you for always making me feel at home in berlin! 4 years pass on so quickly.
my favorite souvenirs when i go traveling are kitschy or weird postcards, where the persons or cites just appear to be trying a bit too hard to be authentic. since my friends know that i love this type of cards, i’ve received quite a few funny ones from around the world. so say hello to my postcard collection, where every postcard comes with a story – or just with a laugh. and next time you’re traveling, remember to send me a card!
this beauty comes from when i was working at the tourist information in my hometown. although this photography from 1932 apparently is one of the most popular postcards in norway, i first noticed it in 2007. the norwegian name of the postcard is “seterjentens fridag” and every year around 30 000 copies are sold.
