Of all the postcards that I have sent home from different cities in Great Britain, Northern Ireland and the Republic of Ireland, there is one postcard that has never arrived (and it’s pretty sad).
When a friend and I hiked Mount Snowdon over two months ago, I bought a postcard and sent it from the summit. I put it onto the red postbox and got so excited as that would be the only postcard I have sent from Wales.
Sadly, it has never arrived.
When I told my friend about it, he said that probably the postbox is only a show. He might be right! So I decided to email Snowdon Summit Visitor Center and hoping that somebody will catch my curiosity: Is the postbox only a display?
Two days later, the Summit Manager reached out to me.
Thank you for your email.
I am sorry to hear that your postcard did not arrive. We do empty the postbox daily so I can only assume it has got lost in the post.
Send us your address and we’ll try to send you gift today.
Today, when I got back from Amsterdam, I received a small gift from Snowdon Summit.
The one that I posted may be ended up somewhere else, but the story will always ring the bells.
