Belarus - 10 february 2012

From Belarus I received this card. It's a painting showing the independence avenue in Minsk. Unfortunately there is no name of the painter on the card.

The stamps, printed in 2008 btw, are really nice, too.

Russia - 4 february 2012

That day I got a second postcard, too, this time from Russia. It's showing the river Vologda and the Kremlin's square.

On the card was the following little poem:

Dame Trot and her cat
sat down for a chat;
The dame sat down on this side

and puss sat down on that.
Puss, says the Dame,
can you catch a rat
or mouse in the dark
Purr, says the cat.

Netherlands - 4 february 2012

This card is showing Gasselte in the Netherlands. It's located in the country's north. The postcrosser I got this from is a retired postman so it's not surprising that I got a nice stamp on this card, too!

Russia - 11 january 2012

As I love rubber ducks, I was very happy to receive this card from Russia, as well as the stamps on it! I think the hare was new to me...

Ukraine - 17 august 2011

From Ukraine I got two postcards that day. Both are showing places in Kharkiv. The first one shows the monument of T.G. Shevchenko, who was an Ukrainian poet. The second one is the Liberty Square - according to the postcard it's the biggest one in Europe and a symbol of pride for the Ukrainians.

The stamps are really nice, too, though I'm not too sure what kind of vase they aer showing or what they might mean.

Russia - 4 august 2011

This card is called ' The Three Princesses of the Underground Kingdom', painted by Victor Vasnetsov 1879-1881. It's being showed in the State Tretyakov Gallery in Moscow. It's a really cool card. Quite mysterious.

The stamps are showing a fox, the Kreml and an apparently famous russian person, but I must admit that I don't recognize him at all. Some help here?

Netherlands - 3 august 2011

Yes, true, it's Brussels. Yes, my scanner cut off the lower half. Yes, it's really from the Netherlands.
Anyway: I love the card. Map cards are awesome. This one is showing the highlits of the city. Nice, hm?

The 44-cent-stamp wasn't a newbie for me, but the Rotterdam-one was. A really nice one. Btw, did you all know that in Dutch 'Netherlands' is only 'Nederland' (=Singular)?

Finland - 27 july 2011

Ever received a winter themed card in july? Well, I did. It came from Savonlinna, Finland. I like snowy scenes, so I really enjoyed it, though it mus say that the stamps were even more awesome.

Anybody ever seen those stickers for 10 cents? They are just so cool! Honestly! They were printed in 2008 btw, the big stamp in 2011.

US - 26 july 2011

Anybody ever heard about the Bunny Suicides? I LOVE those cards. Seriously. This came from Kansas, USA. Awesome, I must say!

The stamps is one that seems to be on almost every letter/card from over there, but I still like it a lot.

Russia - 6 june 2011

This card is showing the Borodinsky bridge in Moscow, Russia. I have never been to Russia, so I can't tell if the architechture is typical for this country. Maybe somebody here knows?

I really enjoyed the stamps, too, The first one is showing a boy readin a book, the second one is some kind of church, I'd guess. My Russian is too rusty to identify it all. :)

Russia - 14 may 2011

This awesome Disney card arrived from Moscow, Russia. Isn't it awesome? I really enjoyed it, as I totally love Disney (and the Snow White movie, as a matter of fact). It was printed in 1998, but you can apparently still buy it there.

It travelled 26 days. The stamps weren't taht bad, either. The Kreml-one I already new, but the tiger was one I haven't seen before, probably as it was printed 2005 if I got it right.

I quite feel like a bad blogger. :P Acutally it has been about a year since the last entry and yesterday I decided it is about time to take up with blogging again. So here I am, hopefully succeeding to keep on blogging a tiny bit longer than last time. While going through some of my old mail I found this card I got from a Finnish friend of mine some while ago. I got no idea why I never blogged it, so here it is now. It's showing Kuopio, in Nothern Savonia, Finland.

Now let's hope I will blog soon again. You never know. :P
