Text: “Dears, If the weather is nice on Sunday morning, I’ll go to Prague on a scooter. If our Ala wants to and isn’t afraid to come to Karlovy Vary with me on a scooter, write me back shortly. Maro could take a train. Also, please write us what time you’ll arrive back on Saturday, ok? So long and look forward to seeing you.”

Note: Karlsbad is a beautiful town. What I love about this postcard is how normal the conversation is. It’s an antique text message!
I included a picture from the first time I was in Karlovy Vary. I am in the picture, but you can only see my back. It does look much more different today than it does in this card.
I am not a native Czech speaker, so if you have a better translation, let me know.
My name is Ryan and am currently living in Tübingen, Germany.
In my free time I like to find old postcards that have something of interest on them. I resend them to friends and family with a short story about where it was from, where it was going, and what the original sender wanted to say. They are a great window to the past and I think others might enjoy them too.
