New Zealand

Today I got these two lovely postcards from my pen pal Janelle from New Zealand.

This postcard is showing “View of views” – Mt. Tasman and Mt.Cook from Lake Matheson, Westland. Such an amazing view!!!


The second postcard is from Western Springs in Auckland, which is a park with plenty of birds. It is very close to downtown Auckland, and adjacent to the zoo. The black and blue bird (bottom left) is the Pukeko, a semi-national bird, and (according to Janelle :) ) – also kind of a pest! :)


Auckland, New Zealand

I got this beautiful panorama postcard from my pal Janelle.

Auckland is New Zealand’s largest city. It’s also called “City of Sails” because it has the largest number of sailing boats per capita. The city lies on the Waitemata Harbour. The Sky Tower is New Zealand’s tallest building at 328 meters.
