Wish You Were Here

The other day, I brought up the topic of "Imaginary Countries". What is the first thing you are supposed to do when you travel to a new far off place? Send your friends a postcard! So, when you travel to an imaginary place... well, then why not tell your friends where you've been?

On the back of the card:

Wish You Were Here
Tyrannosaurus Rex, Velociraptor and Dilophosaur are among the many wonderous living and breathing dinosaurs that only visitors of
Jurassic Park(tm) can experience.

From the back of the cards:

Tired of visiting the same old tourist attractions, take a trip to a time when elves, dwarves and hobbits walked among men. Be sure to bring something "precious".

Looking for a little western swing? Visit the Cartwrights at their Ponderosa Ranch:

Be sure to request ahead of time, if you want the Pre-Adam years or Post-Adam years... (See Pernell Roberts).

From the back of the cards:
Ponderosa Ranch
Incline Village, Nevada
On the North Shore of Beautiful Lake Tahoe

Apparently the Ponderosa Ranch was a Bonanza themed amusment park from 1967 till it closed in 2004.

How about a vacation "long long ago, in a galazy far far away"?

This was actually a postcard I recieved from the home shopping channel, QVC, promoting their "Sci-Fi Week"

But why not take a trip to all the most popular Jedi hangouts?

On the back of this card:
The exciting trek to Tatooine, home planet of Rebel hero Luke Skywalker, includes a complementary visit to a Mos Eisley cantina.
