Schwarzwald, Germany

Not long ago I was contacted by Petra through the official Postcrossing site, asking me whether I’d be interested in a swap. I was actually able to find a certain postcard she was looking for and was happy to send her, and not long after that I found this in my mailbox.

Isn’t it awesome? It was in my favorites on the official site and little to say I was SO HAPPY to pull it out of my mailbox. I love the yellow tones and the view and it kind of has that “end of summer” feel to it! <3

Thanks Petra, I hope we continue swapping! :)

PS – Schwarzwald…. doesn’t it make you want to eat a cake? :)

Heidelberg, Germany (DE-976350)

This one is coming from Heidelberg, Germany. Heidelberg is a German city situated in the south-west of the country. The fifth largest city of the German State of Baden-Württemberg. It lies on the River Neckar in a steep valley in the Odenwald.

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
