I rarely send postcard when I'm on holiday. I think the last time I did was more than five years ago.

No, I haven't sent but I want to. Usually I connect with my friend in social platforms.

Hello everyone! When i was young I sometimes sent postcards or ecards to my family or friends, but now mostly don't. I usually send message, chat or send email. Bye,

Hi! friends of learn English teens I had a good holiday on Tokyo,Japan. We stayed in a hotel named, APA Hotel. The people in Tokyo are very busy. It is the capital of Japan. Yesterday, we visited Disney Land. That was so nice and amazing!!! It was a sunny day. The next day, in the morning we visited the Tokyo Sky Tree. It was really cool. In the evening we visited the Tokyo Tower. It was shining with bright lights. It looks so beautiful. The visit to Tokyo was really great. I had a good experience. I love to visit many countries. I want to visit UK, France, the USA, Australia. Have you ever visit these places? Please, share your experience. I was really fond of hearing it. See you later. Bye. Yours ever, Sherry4869 xxx

Hi!My best friend I'm having a great "holiday " here in US, staying at home with my parents. It was quiet boring if you just stay at home, but I have books to amuse myself. My neighbors are staying at home now, but sometimes they went out and walk their dogs. The flower in my garden is growing now, I can't wait to see it bloom. These days weather was bad, raining all day, and having a really strong wind. But it is very beautiful when the sun goes out. Are you having a good holiday at this time? See you soon

In holiday, there are so many things to do, like cooking, singing, dancing, taking photos, eating, drinking,...So I don't have time to send a postcard. : )
