It really is so lovely to wake up every morning and scroll through all the comments we’ve received over night.
There are so many I want to make sure you read!
Like this one, from a postman in Barcelona. (#21)
Or. This one that has somewhat freaked out a good humoured Belgian. (#672)
Or learning that a tornado went around Hope St in Washington in this one. (#479)
But an earthquake hit Hope St in Christchurch in 2010 and 2011. (#727)
This eccentric one from a New Yorker. (#572)
From 7yr old Samantha in in the USA. (#16)
Knowing a little history of this house in Bremen & then the whole street. (#192 & #194)

I also want to say a very special thank you to Gregory Harvey.
His very special responses are here: #337, #245
He also sent us this picture of Hope St in Canberra.
It is a very special Hope Street.
I did say I would only post every week. But this is too many not to post.
Here is a list of all the responses we’ve had since my last post:
#303 is now on a fridge & #719 on a mantle piece.
#693, #207 & #76 & #534 all got a lovely long replies.
#218 & #664 & #220 & #114 are short but sweet.
Hayley’s response to #610 has been written with much thought.
#557 has got an answer to his statement.
#341 discusses dinosaur & animals in Canberra.
#161 I think brought out their inner child & we’re particularly happy about that.
I also wanted to show you all the numbers of people that have looked up the website from all over the world.
It is quite a lot:
We had a little plethora in the last 24 hours of responses near and far.
The Anchor on Hope St, Battersea received two and replied to both #542 and #152.
Hope St, White Gum Valley has been very responsive: #205, #179,
Jack from Mosman Park (#547) has let us know that they have an annual Hope Street Christmas Party Which makes us very happy. Some of your neighbours got postcards too Jack :)
And one from Preston, Vic from Melina (#720) who have Grandparents in Perth.
Killian answered Hana’s pressing question (#30)
And we’re particularly thrilled to see #72 get a response. This postcard’s message made our heart burst a little. Thank you Hope Street Hotel.
We are posting the postcards.
Today. And Tomorrow.
I like to try and visualise their journey across the globe.
Flying on planes to the far curves of the globe…
All the photos from Awesome Festival are up here.
I’d like to point out that there are probably a few mistakes.
Because we’re human.
Some may have missed being photographed, some have duplicate numbers, some are a little fuzzy.
But we hope it doesn’t stop any being replied to or the scale of the project.
Keep your eyes peeled for replies.
We’ll do some posts each week linking to the replies we get.
Awesome Festival has finished.
And we made a whole 756 postcards.
We soon realised that 2000 was a tad optimistic and set our sights on 700.
756 bits of art being posted around the world!
We need to first edit all the photos and put them here, ready for replies.
If you’d like to make sure you’re kept up to date with all the replies and whatnot – please subscribe on the homepage.
(its on the right)
Here are some snaps of what the space looked like at the end…
be in touch again soon.
Its two days until we begin an amazing adventure at Awesome Festival.
This Saturday we’ll be sending the first of what we hope will be 2000 postcards!
