fellow travelers: 28cents.

fellow travelers is our chance to shine a spotlight on greatness from the internet’s travel community. It is not our list of poputchiks. Just some wanderers who we consider outstanding.

28cents is a compendium of your humble means of analog communication, the postcard. When Ms. Lis (who does a bit of wandering herself) began this tumblr project in March of 2011, you could send a postcard in the US for a quarter and a few pennies. Postcard designs range from simple promos of local businesses and tourist traps to the more personal and handmade varieties — and they all seem to carry the same message to their recipient: I’m thinking of you, now, in this place. It’s interesting to see one person’s collection of these markers of space and time.

there are nightswhen I want to be in San Francisco and New York and Rio and Madrid at the same time, and it seems unjust that I can’t. If I had my way I’d be in love all the time all over the world with a rifle in one hand and a typewriter in the other and a bellyful of good whiskey. This limited existence is a shitty deal.”
