USA, New Zealand & Australia

I’ve been so lazy lately, I haven’t made an update here in so long. Or should I say, “I’ve been so busy lately writing my thesis”… but why lie. :D Here are some of the postcards I got.

Sacramento, USA – I like interesting night views! This postcard is showing the Tower Bridge, which is one of Sacramento’s landmarks. It was comopleted in 1935 and spans the Sacramento River. The Bridge’s towers are over 160 feet high.

The second postcard is from Brisbane, Australia. My pal Janelle went there and she sent me this postcard. It’s a nice multiview showing different locations / views of the city. I like it a lot.

~*~*~*~*~*~

All of the following postcards are also from Janelle. :) This one is showing Waitakere Ranges, West Auckland, NZ.

~*~*~*~*~*~

And the last one, showing One Tree Hill, New Zealand. It’s an extinct volcanic hill, sount of Auckland City. [btw. One Tree Hill, you know the US  series?? I used to watch it all the time… not so much anymore.]

California, USA

I got this wonderful postcard from my pal Katie! She visited California for a business trip and sent it to me. It was one of my favorites on Postcrossing for a long long time…. and now I can brag around that I have it too. :)

According to the description printed on the back of the postcard, it shows Santa Lucia Range and Big Sur coastline. Looks amazing. :)

And by the way, look at the Mark Twain stamp!! :D

San Francisco, USA

This is a cute postcard from San Francisco that I got in a trade through Postcrossing forum. The San Francisco cable car system is the world’s last permanently operational manually operated cable car system, in the US sense of a tramway whose cars are pulled along by cables embedded in the street. It is an icon of San Francisco, California. Cable cars operate on two routes from downtown near Union Square to Fisherman’s Wharf, and a third route along California Street.

They are among the most significant tourist sites in the city, along with Alcatraz Islandand Fisherman’s Wharf. It is the only transportation system listed on the National Register of Historic Places.

California, USA

I got these six postcards through a trade couple of years ago. They never got scanned before so I’m using this oportunity to upload them here.

I’m quite stunned to see how many people are there on this beach picture (third one on the left). I wonder how can anyone really enjoy going to the beach and trip over people whenever you try to do anything. O.o

Los Angeles by night. The lights look funny in this one. :)

The Hollywood sign – one of the typical LA views and probably one of the first things that cross everyone’s mind when someone says “Los Angeles”. :)

Rodeo Drive in Beverly Hills. Apparently, the lights on the trees and little decorations are there because this is a Christmas shot of the street… but it doesn’t look that much like Christmas to me.

Anaheim, California. Actually, this postcard is showing the Adventure City, a theme park located in Anaheim.

RMS Queen Mary is a retired ocean liner that sailed primarily in the North Atlantic Ocean from 1936 to 1967 for the Cunard Line. Queen Mary was officially retired from service in 1967. She sailed to the port of Long Beach, California, United States, where she remains permanently moored. Much of her machinery including her propellers and boilers were removed, and the ship now serves as a tourist attraction featuring restaurants, a museum, and hotel. The ship is listed on the National Register of Historic Places.

mix from all over

I got these awesome postcards through another trade a while ago, and I really really like them!

The first postcard is showing Egg Rock Light in the Acadia National Park, Maine, USA. It was established in 1875, and was was listed on the National Register of Historic Places as Egg Rock Light Station on January 21, 1988.

The second postcard is showing Kristiansan.  It’s a city, municipality and the county capital of Vest-Agder county in  Southern Norway. Kristiansand municipality is the 6th largest in Norway. It was a cool postcard to receive cause I only have one other from Norway! :)

The third postcard I got is from Southern California, which is well known for its great waves and beautiful sceneries.

The last, but not least, is a postcard showing Audley Castle, Northern Ireland. It’s one of the best-preserved tower houses in the area,.
