I got hold of the cards that was posted for me and my daughter from Northern Europe last month. Dimple’s Omi whom i fondly call Auntie Babie, went on a cruise aboard the Grand Princess together with her husband. She picked a card for us in each of her stop.
These are the cards:
“our second to the laststop Gravdal, Lofoten Islands. Descendants here grew rich by furnishing limitless dried fish for the Hanseatic cities in Germany. The Lofoten Islands are remnants of ancient mountains pulverized by glaciers.”
“Our last cruise stop in Stavanger, the 4th largest city in Norway. I have finally experienced the land of mountains, seas, the Arctic Ocean, the fjords and the midnight sun.”
The line i love most:
“Wish you were here with me.”
I so love this card. a multi-view card of North Cape. Auntie Babie wrote “i was here” at that mountain ledge in the upper left of this card. This reminds me of a spot in PS I Love where the guy proposed to the lady on bended knees with a backdrop of the setting sun.
“Finally set foot on the North Cape, Norway’s nothernmost municipality. It is situated at a latitude of 71 10 2 N and from a height of 307 meters affords a fascinating view of the Arctic Ocean. Here the midnight sun shines from mid May to the end of July. Wish i could bring you here one day.”
The last but not the least card — at least they arrived together. Am really so happy about it. ^^
I am so happy the cards arrived safely to my address. ^^
Wishing everyone a happy postcrossing and swapping day!
