Postcards aren’t just great travel images to share with friends and family, they can also instill fond memories for those who have visited the place on the postcard. As this recent arrival does with me:
Ohhh the chips in Britain – such fried, potatoey goodness! I have never had such great chips as I had during my visits to the U.K. I’ve tried my whole life at home and throughout North America and none compare. Such happy limey spud memories….
But I had no idea that chips were good for me! What delightful news!
Here’s the reverse side:
“We went to Bournemouth at the start of summer but it’s taken me this long to get stamps. I thought a chips postcard was very appropriate for you two.”
I also love the stamp of Queen Elizabeth (on the right) – it’s rare to see her so happy. The only thing that makes her that happy are her corgis and possibly a cone of chips!
