Slowest snail mail award

I wrote a letter to a friend in Bermuda on October 6.

It arrived today.

Wow.

  1. Better late than never. : ) I sent 2 Postcrossing postcards and a 2 postcards to another mail blogger (in Europe) last Spring and I never received a response from any of them. This was around the time of the volcanic eruption and I was wondering if everyone flaked or if the volcano interfered with mail delivery. Do you or anyone else know anything about that?

  2. Wow, and I thought sending to Russia was bad, about a month.

  4. Hmmm, maybe every mailman along the way had to read it?

  5. That really was slow! Sounds a bit like the comics I cut out from a newspaper. There a man receives a postcard and it stands there in that postcard that the world war I has started. - I have to scan it and publish in my blog. :-)

  7. Wait... Bermuda? It must have gotten lost in a time warp. Who knows what goes on *there*.

  11. I had that happen to something I sent in October to South Carolina from DC, which arrived last week. Weird.

    My all time record, though, is a letter I sent to a friend in the UK, where my mail routinely arrives to and from in under two weeks. This one took over a year. It had to have been stuck in a crack between machines somewhere along the way. He no longer lived there, but luckily his parents did, so they kindly delivered it to him. :)
