Rubber duck & Lviv, Ukraine & Denmark

While I’m looking at the clouds slowly creeping my way (it’s supposed to snow later today/tonight) and contemplating whether my Johnny (yep, I named my camera Johnny) still works since I haven’t touched it in over a month… I thought I might just as well update this postcard blog. So let’s start.

First, we have a cute rubber duck postcard that came all the way from Germany. It’s not long ago that I added “rubber ducks” to my wishlist on Postcrossing and I already got three! :)

This second postcard is showing a wonderful view of Lviv, a city in western Ukraine. Lviv is now regarded as one of the main cultural centres of today’s Ukraine. The historical heart of Lviv with its old buildings and cobblestone roads has survived World War II and ensuing Nazi and Soviet occupation largely unscathed. The historic city centre is on the UNESCO World Heritage List.

Last but not least, a postcard from Denmark. I think this is the second postcard from Denmark I’ve ever received. Maybe I’m wrong… but I don’t think so. :) It’s nice to look at pictures of sunsets when you’re cold…. ;)

Copenhagen, Denmark

A lovely postcard came in yesterday, all the way from Copenhagen, Denmark. I was really happy to see it, not only because I think it’s really beautiful, but also because postcards from Denmark are so rare in my mailbox.

Aarhus, Denmark

My first postcard from Denmark, ever! And it’s a nice one too!

Aarhus is the second-largest city in Denmark. The principal port of Denmark, Aarhus is on the east side of the peninsula of Jutland in the geographical center of Denmark. I

n 2010, a majority of the city council voted for a name change from Århus back to Aarhus, and the renaming came into effect on January 1, 2011.  Mayor Nicolai Wammen argued that the Aa spelling would strengthen the city’s international profile, help private enterprise and make it easier to access Aarhus on the internet. The Aarhus spelling has, however, always had some use in non-Scandinavian languages.
