Anyone who knows anything about me knows I'm terrible at geography. I thought if I could get 101 postcards from all over the world I might learn a bit more about the places they'd come from. At first I was just getting cards from friends and penpals on holiday but then I found out about postcrossing from my penpal Laura. Its a postcard swapping website and I'm quickly becoming addicted :-)
Total so far 31/101 postcards
Postcard of Dorchester sent by my penpal Miroslava who lives there.
Postcrossing card from Marysia in Warsaw, Poland. Never seen a round postcard before -I like it!
Sirianne sent me this postcard of Luxembourg through postcrossing.
Postcrossing card from Lithuania showing the city of Kedainiai. I find it hard to believe it's a city as it looks so quiet and peaceful. It's one of the oldest cities in Lithuania though with it's first known mention in 1372.
This card was kindly sent by my penpal Rosemarie from her holiday in the Isle of Wight. Love it, looks like a proper old fashioned seaside type place.
I've always wanted to go to Ireland. It's not far so hopefully I'll get there someday. I love lighthouses too so this was a good card for me. The Lusitania was sunk off the Old head of Kinsale in 1915. This is another postcrossing card, this time from Aiste in Ireland.
I love this postcard! It's Karong Kodok in East Java, Indonesia and it looks like such a beautiful place. I'd love to go swimming in that sea. Received from Heidy via postcrossing
Postcard of Geseke, Germany received from Claudia through postcrossing.
A postcrossing postcard from Wilhelm in Riepe, Germany. It shows Neuscwanstein Castle in Bavaria. It is believed to be the inspiration for Sleeping Beauty's castle at Disneyland. You can see why, it's really beautiful. I'd love to go there some day
