Rubber duck & Lviv, Ukraine & Denmark

While I’m looking at the clouds slowly creeping my way (it’s supposed to snow later today/tonight) and contemplating whether my Johnny (yep, I named my camera Johnny) still works since I haven’t touched it in over a month… I thought I might just as well update this postcard blog. So let’s start.

First, we have a cute rubber duck postcard that came all the way from Germany. It’s not long ago that I added “rubber ducks” to my wishlist on Postcrossing and I already got three! :)

This second postcard is showing a wonderful view of Lviv, a city in western Ukraine. Lviv is now regarded as one of the main cultural centres of today’s Ukraine. The historical heart of Lviv with its old buildings and cobblestone roads has survived World War II and ensuing Nazi and Soviet occupation largely unscathed. The historic city centre is on the UNESCO World Heritage List.

Last but not least, a postcard from Denmark. I think this is the second postcard from Denmark I’ve ever received. Maybe I’m wrong… but I don’t think so. :) It’s nice to look at pictures of sunsets when you’re cold…. ;)

Oglasi

Japan

It’s been a long, long time since the last time I’ve received anything from Japan. So it was a nice surprise to find this in my mailbox today!

Ahh… sunsets… ::missing summer::

Hawaii & Belarus

What’s new today….

Diamond Head, Hawaii. Sunset. Wow. (I always thought the cities in Hawaii weren’t actuallycities, but more like small towns. Oh, was I wrong or what!? ;)

 

Second postcard of the day comes from Minsk, Blearus. It’s showing the main building of the railway station, built in 2000. It looks beautiful, I love buildings with loads of windows & lights. You know what’s even nicer about this postcard? It was the first one sent by this (new) user! Welcome to Postcrossing! :)

Arizona, USA

This wonderful postcard found its way to my mailbox just today. It was sent by O’Neal, who definitely has an eye for amazing postcards! Not to mention this is probably one of my favorite types of postcards – anything in sunset (sunrise?). :)

The postcard is showing the Joshua Tree. The little printed description in the back says:Found mostly in the Mojave Desert, the Joshua Tree was used by Native Americans to make baskets and sandals. The seeds and flower buds were also harvested for meals. Well,  a cool looking tree for sure! :)

Thank you O’Neal! :)
