A new treasure for my lighthouse collection thanks to my parents. The card even has matching stamps !!!
Corbière Lighthouse was lit for the first time in 1874 and is located on a tidal island. At low tide it is connected by a causeway to the main island.
I found this postcard in a rack in the Hamburg Harbour and fell for it :) So I had to buy it and send it home for my collection.
Moin Moin is how people in Hamburg greet each other. Translated it would be something like Morning Morning, but no matter what time of day, they use it all the time :)
Normally I am not very much into large letter postcards, but this kind is just awesome !!! I saw it on Flickr and just had to have it :) I finally received it from Susan, who sent it to me for the Postcrossing Favourites Tag.
Great nightview of Schönbrunn Palace in Vienna, sent by my parents.
Schönbrunn Palace is the former residence of the Emperors of Austria. It has 1441 rooms and vast gardens. A wonderful place to visit and to get a glimpse of the imperial life in Austria.
Schönbrunn and its gardens have been inscribed in the UNESCO World Heritage since 1996.
Beautiful Castle Schwerin! This postcard I received for the Postcrossing Favourites Tag from Daniela. It is more a palace than a castle and located on an island in the Schwerin Lake. The city is the capital of Mecklenburg-Vorpommern Federal State and the castle accomodates the state's parliament. and is on the UNESCO Tentative list.
Janie Monroe sent me this gorgeous night view of River Street in Savannah, Georgia. Savannah is the oldest city in the state and offers lots of history and beautiful sights and views. I loved the colours of the card very much.
Many years ago I read a book about a family breeding bulls for bullfighting in Spain. Ever since I had an interest in all this, and this postcard of Toreros in Andalusia reminhded me of this book. The costumes, Traje de Luzes, are handmade and horribly expensive.
Thanks to Anna Bogdanovskaya for sending this card for the Postcrossing Favourites Tag.
Beautiful view of the Mont Saint-Michel in France sent by my parents. Since the 8th century the tidal iland just 600 meters off the French coast, has been the seat of a monastery. During low tide the pilgrims can reach the island on dry feet.
The Mont Saint-Michel and its bay was inscribed into the UNESCO World Heritage List in 1979
Gorgeous winter view of Pinnacle Peak in Mount Rainier National Park, Washington, sent by Susan Pierce for the WiP Winter Swap. I love the beautiful colours !!!
