I received quite a mix of cards today: two map cards,  another elephant card 😉 and a UNESCO WHS card; three from Germany and one from the US .

 

This fabulous map of Southern California is a new card for my collection.

Thanks so much for the card emotis!

 

Another new addition to my map card collection arrived from Germany. It’s this great map of Iceland. Here are some facts about Iceland from the back of the card:  “Iceland – 103.000 km², 39.768 square miles. Coast line 4.970 km, 3.750 miles. Population ca. 283.000”

Vielen Dank für die Karte midnatsol!

 

My elephant  collection just keeps growing and growing. 😉 Here’s another gorgeous card to add to it.

Vielen Dank für die Karte Mausbaer47!

 

And last but not least, I received this card of the mines of Rammelsberg, a UNESCO World Heritage Site since 1992.

Vielen Dank für die Karte Helga_Ni!

I received some fabulous map cards from Australia and the United States today.

First is a gorgeous card of Rottnest Island, which is located 18km off the coast of Western Australia. It is one of Perth’s most popular holiday destinations. Heather, who sent me the card, writes that “Rotto”, as the island is called, is a half-hour ferry ride into the Indian Ocean. One can holiday there but not live there. I think I’d like to spend a holiday there one day…

Heather also mentioned that the island is home to the Quokka (pictured on the card), a marsupial that is related to the kangaroo but the size of a cat. I’ve got to admit I’ve never even heard of Quokkas before. That’s actually one of the reasons why I love Postcrossing. There are so many things to learn and discover! 🙂

 

Very kindly Heather sent me two cards. This map compares the size of Australia to the United Kingdom & Ireland , Japan , the United States , Europe, New Zealand and South East Asia. Australia is a big country indeed.

Thanks so much for the cards hmassese!

 

From the US, I received a state map card of Kentucky, which is nicknamed the Bluegrass state. The capital is called Frankfort. I wonder if it is named after the German city of Frankfurt…

Thanks so much for the card MeSo!
