Welcome to The Modern Postcard Destinations Page!

On November 5, 2019, I stepped onto Egyptian soil and into a dizzying moment of Wow. I had made it to all seven continents. My younger self who loved imagining life in faraway places on her ocean-blue globe would be very pleased with the way things turned out.

I wanted to honor this personal milestone with a new page for The Modern Postcard. As the Categories and Archives listings on the Blog sidebar have grown, I thought it would be helpful to create a Destinations page that would serve as an easy place to quickly view and link to topics I’ve covered. And now with all seven continents framing the stories, I couldn’t imagine a better way to organize them.

The continent sections feature links to countries listed alphabetically. Links to stories appear under each country in the order in which they were written. I’ve also added an eighth “continent” – Notes from Home – which includes practical travel information and thought-filled essays.

I hope this Destinations page will help you discover topics of interest and provide a bit of inspiration for your future travels across the globe.

Thank you for stopping by!
