Dortmund, Germany

Not long ago I saw this post on Postcrossing forum where a girl was asking for cards sent for her friends’ wedding. I thought – why not send one! I got this postcard in return, which was a sweet thing as I didn’t really ask for anything back. :)

This postcard is from Dortmund, Germany. It’s showing one of the sights in Dortmund, this big letter “U” on the top of a building. It’s a sign for a beer brewery called “Union”.

Dresden, Germany

Years ago I had a pen pal from Dresden. I was sorting out my postcards last night and found this one he sent me back in 2004!! I cannot believe how long it’s been!!

Dresden is the capital city of the Free State of Saxony in Germany. It is situated in a valley on the River Elbe, near the Czech border. This postcard shows a pretty cool view on the river and the city. The bridge you can see is called “the Blue Wonder”, and the cableway you can see in the right corner dates in the beginning of the 20th century.

I kind of forgot to update this blog in quite a while…. :( I’ll do my best to get back on track quickly.

So, today I found this lovely postcard in my mailbox. It’s an official Postcrossing card, coming straight from Germany and with a really cool writing on its back. Among other things the sender wrote is this awesome quote: “Show me the books he loves and I shall know the man far better than through mortal friends.” I’m not sure where this quote is coming from, but I like it anyway. :)

Not to mention it’s quite fun to find a Christmas postcard in your mailbox – in February. <3

officials :)

Two official Postcrossing cards that arrived this morning!

Unfortunatelly I can’t really tell what exactly do the pictures show cause the description is written in German, but still the postcard is pretty to look at. :)

 

This postcard came from Odessa, a city in Ukraine. Odessa is also the biggest port on the Black Sea. The sender, Anya, said this postcard actually shows the view on Istambul which is right across the sea from Odessa.

Germany & USA

Well well, these two came in the mail two days ago! :)

First one is from the USA, showing Half Moon Lake, Minnesota. It’s an official Postcrossing card, and from what I could read – the sender, Sara, took the photo herself and got it printed as a postcard. ::likes a lot::

The second one is from my postcard pal Amy, showing different areas of university in Gottingen, Germany. It looks cool!!!

And people, seriously, how do you store your postcards??? I’m in desperate need for some good tips. :)

What do we have here….

This is one of the cutest postcards I got lately, I just adore it! It came from Finland and I was really happy to type down a nice note to the sender while registering the card on PC.
