Back From Vacation , Part 2

Three postcards today, the last that arrived while I was in Cuba. They are from Spain, Singapore and Malaysia. First up is Spain. The card shows a number of scenes from Menorca. Menorca is a small island located in the Mediterranean Sea and belonging to Spain. With a population around 88,000, many tourists from all over the world visit during the summer for sun, sand and relaxation. The card is from a fellow Postcrosser, Susie who has visited this blog. Susie used 2 stamps from 2007. The vertical stamp on the left is 1 of a set of 6 featuring different architecture. The one on the right is 1 of 2 featuring aspects of science.

Singapore is where the next card is from. It is a card showing The Singapore Flyer. The Flyer is the world's tallest observation wheel.It reaches 42 stories and has a total height of 541 feet. It was opened on 01 March 2008. The card is from Edmund Ong who has a blog called eD@HoMe and you can find it at . Edmund used 2 really nice stamps . The smaller one on the left is from 2001 and is 1 of a set of 9 featuring fish, in this case it is the Pearlscale Butterflyfish. The other is from 2007 , 1 of a set of 10 definitives showing flora and fauna. This one is the Yellow Rumped Flycatcher.

The last card shows a beach scene from Manukan Island. It is located in Tunku Abdul Rahman park. Caroline of Sabah, Malaysia sent the card. She too, has a blog called Carol PostCrossing Journey at . Give her a look also. The stamps she used are quite new, 2009.

Thanks Carol, Edmund and Susie.
That's all for today, I am finally caught up , after the week away. Now I will just sit back and await more cards in the week ahead.

Hello Glenn

Is something wrong with my computer or did you upload the Spanish stamps 2x? I cannot see the Singapore stamps you talk about... :)

Best regards
