Postcards From Panglao

Panglao Siniciliya Veronica Pototska Philippines Татьяна Ефимова

Postcards are small souvenirs, that captured significant places and moments for us. We always take them, to make sure that special moment stays in our memories.

Do you remember how it was years ago? We’d go traveling and buy some postcards to send to our loved ones. We’d want to write so many words on the back, but there was only enough space for a sentence or two.

Everything has changed, now you only need to go to a beach, meet a talented photographer Tatiana Efimova and immediately make a decision to capture this moment.

“My dear and beloved family and friends! I am writing to you from the Philippines! I am good, the sea is salty and the sun is hot. We eat a lot of fruit. The sunset will soon begin. How are you?

I love you and miss you! I will soon come home. Please don’t worry about me!

Veronica” 😛

    We love being by the water. We live at the beach, but we only can use it about 3 months out of the year.

    These pictures are beautiful! And yes, I do remember trying to fit what I wanted to say on a postcard. I have been thinking about sending out postcards again though, just a few lines to show someone that I am thinking of them.

  • Reply Megan McCoig February 29, 2016 at 6:57 pm

    I miss writing postcards! Nowadays it’s all about FaceTime and phones – take us back to those days! Your outfit is so lovely, very jealous of the location! X

  • Reply Paula March 1, 2016 at 7:01 am

    What a lovely beach – and I love your dress. My parents recently went on a cruise and sent postcards to the grandkids … it was fun getting them, some arrived weeks after they’d returned home. The kids loved getting the pictures and having the parents read the words to them. 🙂

  • Reply Yona Williams March 1, 2016 at 8:17 am

    The blue colors in your photos always seem vibrant and lovely. I love the dress that you are wearing in your pictures. I still collect postcards…haven’t sent one to family in a really long time, but I still get them when I travel.

    These photos are absolutely magnificent! My dad spent time in the Philippines and he is a photographer. The country is absolutely beautiful. You also are so lovely and look like you are having a wonderful time.

  • Reply Koninika March 19, 2016 at 11:43 pm

    I used to collect postcards! I still love them, such a beautiful memory of your experience in any place. It’s like a part of you stays with you and returns to you from the place you visited! Nostalgic 🙂

  • Reply alexandria March 20, 2016 at 1:22 am

    Love your look. The off the shoulder look is such a trend right now. I just purchased a lovely off the shoulder top from LULU*s.

  • Reply ROBERT LEE April 15, 2016 at 7:11 am

    Sometimes, I talk to travelers who swear they collect postcards wherever they go. It’s just that postcards were practical and about the only way you could say hello to loved ones. Nowadays, you can snap a photo and in seconds, have it posted on Facebook and Instagram or Tweeter. 🙂

    Having said that, the photos you posted are amazing. I hope your experience in Panglao was just as amazing.

  • Reply Dunja April 15, 2016 at 11:27 am

    Beautiful photos! I also miss sending postcards, they remind me of childhood: picking out pretty ones in souvenir stores, writing them, impatiently waiting for them to arrive to your friend / family member (and usually i would come home faster than the post card arrived but oh well)
