We used to get fed up with our post cards arriving 4 weeks after we got home from the Maldives (or anywhere else for that matter)and several years ago came up with the idea of always taking English stamps away with us. We then ask some kind person who is returning home before we are if they wouldn't mind popping our cards in the post box when they get back to the UK. It's so nice to know that people have already got got their cards while we are still there.
So I was wondering ... how about us all getting together and starting a new service? It could be called PAT in honour of that famous postman (!) but would stand for "Post and Take". All anyone needs to do is to ask if you can put up a small cardboard PAT box in reception or outside your room. Everyone can them deposit their cards there and hopefully would be decent enough to take some with them on departure day.
Who's up for it? Tell us which island you are going to and you could be the first one to get things started.
Call me mad if you like but it's so simple and simple ideas work best.
