A few postcards from the UK

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 love London” swap – UPDATED

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! :)

SlikaThank 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!

Llanthony Priory, UK

Guess what I found in my mailbox today!? This lovely postcard from my pal Anu! :)

The postcard is showing Llanthony Priory. It’s a partly ruined former Augustinian priory in the secluded Vale of Ewyas, a steep sided once glaciated valley within the Black Mountains area of the Brecon Beacons National Park in Monmouthshire, south east Wales. It lies seven miles north of Abergavenny on an old road to Hay on Wye at Llanthony. The main ruins are under the care of Cadw and entrance is free.

How pretty is it?! Do the Google picture search if you have time, there are a lot more wonderful photos of it! :)

Thanks Anu! :)

This is an adorable postcard that my pal Anu sent to me. It’s just so cute! When I buy postcards, I usually go for those “typical” ones – with nice photo of the city or something like that. I would probably never even notice this postcard standing somewhere. Or if I did notice it, I probably wouldn’t buy it. But now that I have it in my hands, I can’t stop looking at it! It’s so adorable!!! Thank you Anu! :)
