We arrived in Hanoi 2 days ago and have mainly been jetlagged. Just before we left we had a couple of postcards to send from London, both to the same person. The person lives in East London, so I decided to post these from Heathrow on the way out to try to give them as much distance as possible to cover

I also love posting from the airports in the UK because they have these really cool plastic postboxes with see-through acrylic backs. It’s a real treat for a postal geek.

The idea of these postcards was to try and see if putting a 1st or 2nd class stamp on a postcard made any difference. Historically, 1st class stamps were guaranteed to arrive the next day, whereas 2nd would take more time. I hope the recipient gets these and feeds back!

If you are in the UK, why not send 2 postcards to someone you know today and feed back in the comments with what happened for you
