Lviv, Ukraine

SlikaThis wonderful postcard was sent to me by my dear pal Ugne. Such a nice picture!!! <3 And of course, I’m really late to upload it to the blog. No surprises there. -_-
Thank you, Ugne, I really, really love this postcard! <3


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…. ;)


Ukraine & Brazil

Guess what? Here’s another postcard from Kiew, Ukraine!! It arrived two days ago! :)


The second postcard that arrived that same day came from Brazil. Happy looking postcard, although I have no clue what it says. I think it’s a poem about flowers… but what do I know. :)


Ukraine and USA

This is the postcard from Kiew, Ukraine, showing the St. Sophia Cathedral.

I’ve been receiving quite a lot of postcards from Ukraine lately. Especially from Kiew. Surprisingly, no doubles so far. :D

The second postcard is coming from Utah, USA. It’s showing Bridal Veil Falls. They are one of Utah’s most recognizable landmarks. The double cataracat waterfalls drop 601 feet (183 meters) and meet the Provo River below.

Ms. Linda (the sender) made an interesting comment on this postcard, saying that almost every region of the USA has at least one waterfall called “Bridal Veil”, some larger areas maybe even more than one with that name. Haha, that’s what I call “lack of ideas”. :)


officials :)

Two official Postcrossing cards that arrived this morning!

Unfortunatelly I can’t really tell what exactly do the pictures show cause the description is written in German, but still the postcard is pretty to look at. :)


This postcard came from Odessa, a city in Ukraine. Odessa is also the biggest port on the Black Sea. The sender, Anya, said this postcard actually shows the view on Istambul which is right across the sea from Odessa.


Kiew, Ukraine

An official Postcrossing card from Kiew, the capital of Ukraine. The picture shows the Monastery golden domes, according to the short description on the back of the postcard. The poem in the front is by an Ukrainian poet Rylskiy, but unfortunately I don’t know what it means.


Kiew, Ukraine

An official from Kiew, Ukraine. It shows “House with chimeras” and the building of Ukraine’s President Administration, according to the description on the back.
