Today I received a postcard from Slovenia. It is a picture postcard of a famous badminton player ‘Maja Tvrdy’. Her father sent me this postcard through post crossing. I am very happy. I had also won a gold medal in badminton. I liked that postcard very much. Postcrossing is a very good hobby. I received 50 postcards and sent 50 postcards. I am a badminton fan so this postcard has a great importance for me. It was a very good experience for me.
