Netherlands, Photo of the Week

Photo (Postcard) of the Week – Netherlands

My postcard from  Nomad Courier – taken in the Netherlands

This week I became involved in a cool new travel site focusing on photography and nomadic travels…two of my favorite things!  Technology evolves fast and one of the latest things to become popular is micro-blogging – which is pretty much what the name implies – a little blog post.  Nomad Courier is a new micro-blog which highlights photography from 7 hand-picked nomads traveling the world (yes, I actually had to apply to be a part of it!).   This is the brain child of Jenneil from Hello Meet World; and my favorite part is that the idea was developed out of an innocent little tweet on Twitter.

We provide a new postcard every day with some cool photography/image and on the back of the digital postcard is our message.

I love this idea of small blog posts attached to a photo – hopefully you will too!  The other 6 nomads are phenomenal and you should get to know them too!  I’m just thrilled to be a part of it!

To see more travel photography – check out Photo Friday on Briefcase to Backpack.

    What a great idea! I love sending and receiving postcards so I can’t wait to follow your photo adventures :) I may just have to submit a guestpost(card) :)

      Allison – you SHOULD submit a guest post card. Considering you do real postcard art – it would be great! Thanks for all of your support as always!

  2. Interesting concept, but it always leaves me wanting to read more. However your photo did intrigue me, as I always associate Amsterdam with the red light district. Gorgeous windmill!

    Love the concept, is there any way to incorporate the latest postcards into a widget for other sites?

  7. Love this idea! Why couldn’t I have thought of something so sweet and simple :-) Looking forward to checking out the site!
