When I started leaving my husband and daughter behind to travel to every country, I felt the need to send them a postcard from the places I was visiting. Actually, I sent a postcard only to my husband from the first country I've been to. That was Romania. The next was North Korea. Seeing a special card with children, I sent my daughter a postcard too. Then started sending the postcards especially to my daughter. Now, it has turned into a collection. I'd like to leave my daughter, as a special memory from her mother, a collection of postcards from every country. As I had already been to 109 countries before I started with this mission, too many will be missing. I'm trying to recover them as I revisit some of the countries, but I suppose I will not be returning to most of them. Therefore, I started asking my family and friends travelling to send postcards to contribute to my daughter's collection. And now, I'm extending this request to other travellers or anybody who lives in the countries we don't have a postcard from.
So I've made a list of the countries with missing postcards. If you are visiting or live in one of the countries listed below, I'd appreciate a lot if you could send a postcard to my daughter at the address:
Lara De Vincentiis
Keman Sokak No: 4
I prefer a simple postcard, with no envelope, just a stamp at the back of the postcard and a simple message of "Greetings from X" would be fine. Or any other message that you'd like to leave to a child, any words of wisdom, your favorite quote or a specific information of the country you're sending the card from.
Thank you very much.
PS: I am more than willing to reciprocate the favor and send you a postcard from Italy, Turkey or any of the countries I'll be travelling to. So if you are interested, send me an e-mail with your address. Upcoming trips can be found at the bottom of the Progress page and the countries I still need to visit are at List of Countries.

Bosnia and Herzegovina
Iran (Islamic Republic of)
Lao People’s Democratic Republic
Republic of Moldova

* The countries marked with an asterisk are the countries I actually sent a postcard from, but did not arrive.
What I want to do
I will be going to every country in the world only to burn my passports even if not a single soul in this world cares about it. Yet, I'm sure there are people out there who care. I consider them as family. I'm curious as to how big a family I have. I would also like to meet my family members. Join the League of Unreasonable Minds
