A Few Cards From A Few Places

I'm back again with a new update. Nothing spectacular , just a few cards from a few places . First up is Croatia. I received this card from a PostCrosser, who says Dubrovnik is the most beautiful Croatian town. The card shows Dubrovnik fortifications at night. The stamp was issued in 2010 and is 1 of a set of 4 celebrating Etnographic heritage.

The next card came to me from Saint Malo, France. Quentin, a student in Saint Malo sent this card showing Portsmouth, England . Quentin writes that the ferry from Saint Malo arrives in Portsmouth. On the is card are 2 Marianne definitives along with a 2010 Singapore 2010 Youth Olympic Games stamp.

Now for a card from Denmark. You know, I've collected cards now for over 5 years and I think this is only my 3rd card from that country. Kinda strange actually. All you Danes out there, send me a card. I'll gladly receive any and all. Lene sent this card showing the National Flag and a very old house in the city of Odense. I guess it's not difficult for Odense to have old houses , since the city celebrated its 1000th anniversary in 1988. As I have often commented in this blog, there's nothing that old around these parts. And , if there was, we'd probably tear it down . One famous citizen of Odense was Hans Christian Andersen, author and poet. Lene used a 2010 stamp celebrating the 250th anniversary of the Carsten Niebuhrs Arab expedition of 1761.

The last card for this update is a shaped card showing a large square in Kromeriz, Czecg Republic. It also shows us a number of Coats of Arms of various towns and cities in Czech Republic. Iveta sent this card from her hometown of Krozeriz. She used a flower definitive from 2007 and 2 copies of a 2011 A rate stamp showing chicks in the nest.

Thanks for these cards go out to Iveta, Lene, Quentin and the Croatian Postcrosser, who's name I can't make out.

Take care, Enjoy your postcards and I'll see you soon.
