My parents sent me this stunning postcard from their cruise last year to the North Cape. It shows the town of Stryn in Nordfjord district, Norway. The town is well known for its all year glacier skiing and is located at the Gamle Strynefjellsvegen, a national tourist route.
I was fascinated by this postcard when I found it in a postcard rack in Turkey and had to send it home for my collection. Personally I am afraid of ballooning, due to my fear of heights, but I just loved this picture. Moreover Cappadocia is a UNESCO World Heritage site :) It was inscribed in 1985.
