Thursday #ThoughtsOnAPostcard Round-up

          If you’ve ‘liked’ The Well-Travelled Postcard’s Facebook Page, then you might have seen my #ThoughtsOnAPostcard series that I’ve been posting once a week, on a Thursday, on Facebook. On the back of a postcard I’ve been posting some of my favourite travel quotes, some of the quotes that inspire me the most. There are plenty more to come, but I thought I’d give you a round-up of the last 10 quotes, in case you missed any of them.
