Recently I’ve been getting more and more Croatian postcards. Quite cool, honestly, as it’s mostly smaller places that I’ve never been to, even though they’re part of my country.
Today, I’m sharing this Novigrad postcard.
Novigrad is historic little town on the southern side of the Novigrad sea and is situated in a narrow bay. The Novigrad sea is abundant in fish and shellfish, which is why Novigrad fishermen are well known. The town has preserved its Mediterranean architecture, and partially also its system of fortification. The vicinity of the Zrmanja River allows for attractive canoe, kayak or rafting excursions.
Cute, isn’t it?
This is a long overdue post about a whole bunch of postcards my pal Janelle sent me from her journey through the USA & Canada. I’m going to make two separate posts, to be honest, with postcards from Florida in one & postcards from Canada in another… mainly because I’m slightly OCD and it’s easier for me to keep track this way. ::insert smiley face::
So here they are, her Florida postcards! <3
First one is a lovely Florida map card. I’m not a real map card collector like a lot of people I stumbled upon through Postcrossing are, but I do love to see a nice map card! And this one is lovely!
The second card is showing Miami Beach, “looking north along Collilns Avenue towards the Fontainebleau Hotel.” I love how blue the sea looks & the idea of living in such a sunny, warm environment is rather appealing. And so close to the beach, wow! I’m not sure about the hurricanes, though. ;)
Last one is a postcard of Orlando – such a beautiful postcard!
Wonderful postcards! <3 Thank you, Janelle!
Another official, coming from Tokyo, the capital of Japan.
It’s showing a communications and observation tower located in Shiba Park, Minato, Tokyo, Japan. At 332.5 metres (1,091 ft), it is the second tallest artificial structure in Japan. The structure is an Eiffel Tower-inspired lattice tower that is painted white and international orange to comply with air safety regulations. The Tokyo Tower was built in 1958. The tower’s main sources of revenue are tourism and antenna leasing. Over 150 million people have visited the tower since its opening.
Awesome view and colors, if I may add. :)
