One of the things I always like to do when I'm in a city I've never been before, is drinking coffee in a cute little cafe. Last week I've been to Leiden for the first time (about 55 km away from Amsterdam) with my dad he's girlfriend and my younger sister. We went to a cafe called 'Francobolli' which means 'stamp' in Italy.
The thing that makes this little cafe special, is that you can choose a postcard when you buy coffee. They will send your postcard on the date you like. For example you want to write a card for your friends birthday, but her birthday is next month. Then they place your card at the right date on the big calendar on the wall as you can see on the photo below and above.I love this concept! Nowadays we can send messages so easily to somebody with our smartphones. Which is great! But sometimes we forget how special it can be to get a postcard and how much fun it is to write and send it to someone!
This is the card that I choose. It says "There you have a point". Which I thought was really funny (I have really dry humour). But it also reminded me of my friend Jeff because I once said "you don't get my point" (in a funny way) and now he always makes jokes about it. So I sent this card to him with the text "do you get my point now?".
The latte macchiato and the carrot cupcake that I got was so good ♥︎
Do you still send postcards?
