How's this place work?

If you could take a little mental holiday and go to any imaginary place, where would you go?
And what would you do while you were there?

Send me a postcard, handmade or otherwise, from an imaginary location. It can be a place from a book or a movie or a piece of music, or some other world you made up. On the other side, write and tell me what you've been doing on your vacation from reality.

All postcards to be addressed to:

Wish I Were Here
6219 156th Ave. NE
Redmond, WA 98052
United States

I'll scan a selection of postcards and post them to the blog for all and sundry to enjoy.

Postcard the thirty-second: Ski Olympus Mons

Winter holidays are such fun, aren't they?

Even when you're operating on a tighter budget, they can still be a blast.

Frolicking vacationer Coco writes:
"Forget the snobby Winter Hexagon people & book 2 weeks at Olympus Mons! I know it sounds crazy but hear me out. With both kids in school out in the Carina-Sagittarius Arm now and the Charon Ski Resort (our usual spot) getting more & more exclusive, we had to cut back on our annual ski trip. I was worried Olympus Mons would be full of loser Earth-dwellers leaving the planet for the first time (& it is), but something about the Martian snow made it all worth it!

As someone with a kid in school right now, I can relate. Coco makes a great point: before you relegate a particular place to the status of "tourist trap," check it out first. Celebrated famous places, while they'll always have their detractors, usually became famous for a good reason. Thanks for the card!
