Well then I guess the 2 we sent from Majestic Elegance won't be arriving! We sent them on August 16th and neither arrived!

My last 2 trips to PC, I sent postcards back to Canada, both times they took over a month to arrive! I used mailboxes at the resort, so perhaps the boxes were not emptied for a couple of those weeks, Graham

And we all know about Dominican time....:-)

They usually take a month or 2 to arrive to Canada...so I imagine the US is similar timing.

A few years back when I first arrived in the country (2005) I sent a post card to a good friend. A year later while visiting that very friend...guess what arrived in his mailbox??? Indeed!!!! A postcard from me sent the year prior!

Cheers

I've not sent postcards home to Canada since our first trip to the D.R. in 2003. It took close to 8wks for them to arrive at the destination. By that time, we'd already given the family our travel report & shown the pictures !

Email is soooo much faster !!
