A couple months ago, I helped a lovely couple decide where to go away for a short weekend break by voting one out of three locations in England: Cambridge, Nottingham or Liverpool.
Voting made me eligible to take part in a lucky draw with the prize being a postcard from the winning destination.
This morning, I was Whatsapp-ed by my brother. Something arrived in mail to my home in KL.
Yay! I won the lucky draw! Woohoo!!
And what a lovely postcard! You know, I have actually never been to Cambridge when I was in the UK, so it felt incredible to receive a postcard from this place and then see someone visit it and take lovely pictures on my behalf.
The closest I have ever been to Cambridge when in the UK is a building with the word “Cambridge” in Bath, a town 20 miles away from the Stonehenge.
Speaking of Stonehenge, let’s show you the real thing. This happened when I was studying in the UK in 2007. More of my Stonehenge and Bath trip here. Ylvis’s song is playing in my brain right now…
Back to the postcard. Apparently when my brother collected the postcard from the mailbox, it was slightly wet. It was probably the rain, but I’d like to think that it was because this postcard is magical, where the water from the River Cam in the photo flowed to the back of the card! 😀
And there’s a lovely personal message in the postcard.
Thanks, Catherine! I love this gift! And I’m glad you enjoyed your weekend getaway! 😀
