One of the reasons why I don’t particularly like Vancouver, British Columbia is that most things are unnecessarily over-priced. In contrast, however, I was delighted to find a freebie postcard while there.
It’s rather rare to find free postcards any more, particularly ones that aren’t just an advertisement as most giveaway postcards are.
It’s not the most exciting, but it was free:
The observation area depicted on this postcard is actually quite interesting. There are quite a few digital media displays and a good view (although I sent a couple e-Postcards that never arrived). My daughter loved the place the last time we were all in Vancouver.
I had to mark the occasion by writing myself a note on the back:
“YVR’s Public Observation Area
Discover our airport through interactive displays, telescopes and stunning airfield views. Bring family and friends. Located in the public area on Level 4, Domestic Terminal.”
“A free postcard – that’s actually a proper postcard! How rare! How delightful! Yeah! This is where I hung for a couple hours today and before hung out with the kid!”
