I think I need to write and send out more postcards again as I only received one card today. It came from Northern Germany and depicts the Westerheversand lighthouse.

Vielen Dank für die Karte Evalotta!


Just one card today. From Arnhem in the Netherlands . It’s a lovely view of the concert hall Musis Sacrum.

Dank u zeer voor de briefkaart RDGR!

Two lovely envelopes with gorgeous stamps greeted me today when I opened our letterbox. One arrived from Finland and one from China .

This absolutely stunning view from Finland is actually the view from mikkomi74’s home. Wow! Talk about idyllic, huh?

Kiitos paljon mikkomi74!


The envelope from China contained two cards. Both amazing views. The first card is titled “An Exhibition of World Architecture” on the back. The front reads “Enjoying life under the roofs”. Isn’t that nice?. 🙂

The second card from China depicts a village in Fujian province. The text on the back reads “The Eight-Diagram Fort is located at Dongping Village, Shentu Town, Zhangpu County. It is not a single earthen building but a resident house in Eight-Diagram form with five-ring style.” Apparently it can hold more than 100 people.

Two new cards came in today’s post for me, one from Canada  and one from Belarus .

The card from Canada is a flag card, which makes a great new addition to my flag collection. The text on the card reads “The newly designed Canadian flag was flown for the first time on February 15, 1965”. Seeing as that was before my time, there’s no shame in admitting that I don’t actually know what it looked like before.

Thanks so much for the card Draven!

The Mir Castle Complex in Belarus has been a UNESCO World Heritage Site since 2000.

Dziakuju Klemochka!

Today’s post had two cards in store for me, one from Russia and one from South Korea ,which I’m rather chuffed about as it’s the first card I received from there.

And here it is, depicting a lovely painting by Lee Myung Shin. It’s called A Winter Evening Scene at the East-side Gate. The stamps were very cool, too – one of the South Korean flag and the other of a scelidosaurus.

The card from Russia shows St. Isaac’s Square, St. Isaac’s Cathedral and the Monument to Nicholas I in St. Peterburg.
