Lopud, Croatia

A friend of mine, Marija, visited the island of Lopud during the summer and she was kind enough to bring me this lovely postcard back.

Lopud is a small island, approximately 4.63 square kilometers (1,79 square miles) in size, located just off the off the coast in the southern Dalmatia. It is the second largest island of the Elaphiti islands, and is mostly known for its beautiful sandy beaches. One of the easiest ways to reach Lopud is by boat, it’s a short boat ride from Dubrovnik.

Auckland, New Zealand (NZ-86199)

This wonderful postcard arrived a few days ago – from New Zealand! Really nice sunset photo!

Based on the printed description on the postcard’s back, the island in the picture is Rangitoto Island, near Auckland. It is a volcanic island in the Hauraki Gulf. It’s the most recent and the largest of the approximate 50 volcanos of the Auckland volcanic field. [Thank you, Wikipedia! XD]

Rab, Croatia

So, I spent a week on the island Rab at the end of July and I picked up some postcard while I was there. So here they are. :)

This is a postcard showing a small town Lopar where my hotel was. There were many nice sandy beaches everywhere! :) And the following ones show the biggest town on the island, also called Rab.

And the final postcard I picked up is showing Goli otok – or literally translated: “barren island”. The structures you can see on the pictures are the remains of a prison that was builed on the island. It’s abandoned now and no longer in use.

greetings from…Taiwan & Croatia!

This is the official Postcrossing card from Taiwan! It took me 15 minutes of trying and failing until I figured out the ID *giggles* but now it’s finally registered. Btw. how come people from Asian countries often put stamps on the left side? I tried Googleing this but didn’t really find any useful information. Hmm…

My friend Nena sent me this postcard from her vacation on the island Pašman. I could stare at the sunset in the background for hours.

This card came from an island Lopud near Dubrovnik (also in Croatia) and was sent by my dear friend Ena. :) Thank you!
