Hello! Bonjour!

Welcome to my blog Cartes Postales.

carte postale (cart puh-stall): postcard

a small, commercially printed card, usually having a picture on one side and a space for a short message on the other

I started this blog on the eve of my departure for France, where I taught English for a year.  I created this blog with the idea that it would become a sort of collection of virtual "post cards" about my travels abroad. Now that I'm back home in Vancouver, Cartes Postales has transitioned into a travel-inspired lifestyle blog.
