My favorite postcard from Germany, from my nice friend, Antje… thanks a lot :)
P.S. Sorry guys I’ve been away for a while, about a month actually… life got busy. I’ll try to post regularly :) cheers xo
I love B&W postcards. I love New York. I love Manhattan. I love airplanes.
So I think u can guess how much I love this postcard.
Thanks to Nina :)
you can read about Manhattan here.
This one is one my favorite owl-cards I have :D
and one of the advantages of being a postcrosser from a rare country like Iran, is that no one says no to you. and the owner was selective over who she sends the card to, because she had limited copies of it … so it was like a contest, and as a Scoprio I have a competitor character, so you know! …. it felt nice to get it :)))
This one is also one of my special cards … I love the illustration, the colors, and somehow it shows something close to islamic architecture which is common here.
Thanks to Nina, my Sherlock-fan friend :)
Thanks to Natascha for this beautiful card of Bingen, Germany:)
Bingen am Rhein is a town in the Mainz-Bingen district in Rhineland-Palatinate, Germany.
The settlement’s original name was Bingium, a Celtic word that may have meant “hole in the rock”, a description of the shoal behind the Mäuseturm, known as the Binger Loch. Bingen was the starting point for the Via Ausonia, a Roman military road that linked the town with Trier. Bingen is well known for, among other things, the story about the Mouse Tower, in which allegedly the Bishop of Mainz Hatto was eaten by mice. The town was in 2008, after Kaiserslautern and Trier, organizer of the third Rhineland-Palatinate State Garden Show.
This beautiful postcard is sent by Vanessa from Germany to me, but it’s from Nepal, and it shows the highest mountain, mount Everest.
Mount Everest (Nepali: सगरमाथा, Sagarmāthā; Tibetan: ཇོ་མོ་གླང་མ, Wylie: jo mo glang ma; Chomolungma or Qomolangma /ˈtʃoʊmoʊˌlɑːŋmə/ “Holy Mother”; Chinese: 珠穆朗玛峰; pinyin: Zhūmùlǎngmǎ Fēng;) is the Earth’s highest mountain, with a peak at 8,848 metres (29,029 ft) above sea level and the 5th tallest mountain measured from the centre of the Earth. It is located in the Mahalangur section of the Himalayas. The international border between China and Nepal runs across the precise summit point. Its massif includes neighboring peaks Lhotse, 8,516 m (27,940 ft); Nuptse, 7,855 m (25,771 ft) and Changtse, 7,580 m (24,870 ft).
