Plitvice lakes, Croatia

moje plitvice

Just a quick post showing the beautiful Plitvice lakes. :)

I got a chance to visit it yesterday, after several years of planning and failing to do so – and yes, it’s still as beautiful as it was the first time I was there. We had awful weather though, it’s been raining pretty heavily the entire time. Imagine, water falling from the sky (you know, rain) and water also coming from any other direction you can imagine. Thanks wind, thanks many, many waterfalls! You’ve done a great job keeping us soaking wet. ;)
We didn’t get the crappy weather ruin our trip so all in all – it was fun. I have quite a lot of photos from the trip – I’ve posted some on my Instagram account already, and I’ll keep posting them until I get tired of them. :)

I have to comment on two things:
1. I loved how clear the water was. I mean, the lakes were this wonderful bluish color and you could clearly see all the way to the bottom of the lake (unless it was too deep, of course). And so many fish, haha! Tiny fish, bigger fish, curious little things! So of course I took way too many “look at my old sneakers next to the clear water & the fish” photos. :D

2) The selection of postcards is horrible. Just plain bad. I’m not sure whether I became superpicky lately. but honestly – I haven’t seen more than two decent postcards that I could take and say, “yes, I like these!” It makes me so sad. :( I got I think 4 to send to my friends and 1 for my own collection, but I’m far from happy with what I got.

Anyway, one of my best friends got married on Saturday & the combination of the wedding and this trip to Plitvice yesterday pretty much got me exhausted. I’m off to take a nap now, I think I deserve one. :)

Keep calm & appreciate the little things in life.

It’s been an interesting week & there are several interesting postcards to share! If I were only more active on Postcrossing, good mail days would probably come more often than they do now, haha! #sigh

First thing I’d like to share is this awesome “Keep calm and send a postcard” postcard from the USA, sent by Shannon (who has a cool Postcrossing username: happy_face! I just had to share this one, I like “happy”-anything things.)
IMAG5481I absolutely adore this postcard! Not too long ago, I added “Keep calm” postcards to my wishlist on Postcrossing, in hope someone might have some extra and would want to share them with me, and this is actually the first one of those that was sent my way. And it’s an awesome one!!! ::happy happy::

The second thing I wanted to share is not really a postcard, but it was sent to me through the official Postcrossing & I quite like it, so I’m not being picky about it. Two photographs were sent my way by Sylvia & Batiste, packed in a cute coffee themed handmade envelope. I’m sharing both photographs here, one is showing the lavender field (typical for the particular region of France where Slyvia & Batiste come from, if I understood it correctly), and the other is a vintage black and white beach themed photo. As a photography geek myself, I can appreciate both! :)

I have a few more postcards to share, but I gotta run now & do real-life things. So, I’ll post something new soon! :)
