SENT CARD #19: Heide-critters


This little group of Heidschnucken (German moorland sheep) went to Zhu in China. They spent 24 days with the postal services to travel the 5576 miles (8974 km) from my hometown in Germany to Zhu’s mailbox in China 🙂

Have a great Wednesday!

SENT CARD #18

A postcard featuring some art from the Lüneburger Heide. I sent it to Karin from the Netherlands and within 4 days it crossed the distance of  222 miles (358 km) that lie between the postoffice in my hometown and her mailbox.

P.S.
My internet it down for a few hours each day because of a construction site just half a mile up the road from where I am. I’ll try to get my blogging done within the few hours of internet connectivity I have. You might not notice it at all but I thought it would be nice to let you know anyway : )

SENT CARD #10 & #11: Heath for Asia

The Lüneburger Heide (Lunenburg Heath), a pretty place featured on many postcards I send out to people through the Postcrossing project. Like this, this and this one. Now, here are two more:

The first went to Chai Xin in China, crossing a distance of 4722 miles (7600 km) in 22 days.

And the second went to Chi-Ling Lee in Taiwan. It travelled 5674 miles (9131 km)  in 6 days to drop into his mailbox.

I really love where I live. The Heide (Heath) is so pretty especially when the heather is in full bloom covering the ground like a purple carpet. When I was in elementary school our teacher would often take us on field trips into the Heath hiking – fond memories!

So, what pretty views has your area to offer? Breathtakingly high mountains with snow covered peaks? Bold cliffs and the clear blue sea? Or forests with trees older than dirt itself? Tell me!

And have a good start into the new month!
