These following postcards did not come from the same sender, but I decided to post them together since they’re from the same part of the world. :)
This first one came from one of my new pals, Bryony, and it’s showing the Cardiff Castle, Wales. It dates back to the first century, said Bryony! Wow, that’s old! :)
Great postcard, by the way! I love how it looks!
The second postcard arrived just this morning, from my – not so new – pal, Kathryn. She’s traveling in Europe and is visiting the UK. The postcard is showing the Historic North Yorkshire, or more specifically: (top row, left to right) Byland Abbey, Castle HOward, Helmsley Castle, Pickering Castle, (bottom row, left to right) Rievaulx Abbey, Mount Grace Priory, Scarborough Castle, Whitby Abbey.
Great postcard as well!
Last but not least, from my pal Ugne – London! Oh, London! <3 The postcard is showing the red buses crossing the Westminster Bridge. Can I say it once more? Oh, London! <3
Thank you girls so much! <3
One of my newer pals, Rose, was kind enough to put together a little package and send it my way. Aside from candy (Cadbury chocolates are my new love!) and cute little souvenirs (such as a key chain and the coolest 3D red London bus magnet), some tea (that I still haven’t tried because it’s just too hot around here to drink tea)… she also sent me these three postcards!
First, of course, a London multiview postcard. Because London is my dream destination… and there’s a picture of Sherlock Holmes statue on it. I <3 Sherlock!
Second, this cool Sheffield postcard. It’s showing the Sheffield Train Station and the water cascades in front of it. I wonder if kids ever go here and dip in?! I doubt, Rose said they never get temperatures high enough that would make people want to take a dip in a fountain. :)
Third, this cool fish & chips postcard. I was asking her about that dish a while ago in one of our e-mails, and she added this lovely postcard to her package! I’m still curious to try out the actual meal, ha ha!
Thank you, Rose!
I haven’t done a swap with someone new in…. months!! And then a while ago I was browsing the Postcrossing forum and noticed someone offered a few of those “I love London” postcards. I thought they were so adorable and – obviously – I wanted one! So we arranged to do a swap! And it arrived in the mail yesterday, straight from Hong Kong! :)
Thank you, Cherie! I love this postcard! :)
PS – This postcard made me think… I want a pen pal from London! Or a postcard pal. A pal of any kind. From London! :D
EDIT: Yet another from the “I <3 London” postcards showed up in my mailbox! I didn’t even know there will be two! Not that I mind, they are just adorable!
I got these two postcards through a trade on Postcrossing forum. The first one is showing London through several pictures. I like it a lot, to be honset. :D
The second one is sort of a vintage postcard, showing Peasholm Lake, Scarborough, UK.
London… always a nice place to get a postcard from. :)
This first postcard is showing the Buckingham Palace from the air. It looks like an impressive building, but… look at the people in front of it!! Haha, tourist groups… they never fail to impress me. XD
The second postcard is showing Tower Bridge. It is a combined bascule and suspension bridge, over the river Thames. It was officially open in 1894.
I have received this lovely postcard today, from the 2011 London Postcrossing Meet-Up. It was sent to me by my lovely pal Anu who always seems to surprise me with awesome postcards! Thanks!! :)
My dear friend Nena went to London a few weeks ago and I asked her if she could look for one of these Underground postcard – and she did get me one! <3 <3 <3 Thanks Nena!
