Sent Card #208

208-SWEDEN-oct13.2015-card1 208-SWEDEN-oct13.2015-stamp
I sent this card to Anna in Saxtorp, Sweden. Anna wrote on her profile that she likes “beautiful horses”, water and nature. So I sent this card that I found in Chincoteague, Virginia last year. I saw wild horses running beside the highway – it was amazing! I was only there for half a day, so I’d love to go back again for a while longer.

HURRAY! My card reached its destination in 6 days after traveling 4,140 miles! Anna wrote: “Hello Thanks for your nice card. Always fun to get postcards. Wis´hing you one pleasant autumn, Best Best regards Anna”

Sara from Sweden contacted me about swapping. She happens to be in Utah on vacation, and she’s trying to collect USA cards while she’s here. She liked a few of my cards, so I sent her 2 since I couldn’t make up my mind. 🙂 I asked her if she had a Utah mapcard, and she said she’d find one for me. 🙂 I received the card below, and I’m so happy to add it to my USA mapcard collection!

Favorite cheese: a yellow cheese from Norway

Tanya lives in Surrey, England and was born in Moldova and lived in Russia. That’s so interesting! 🙂 She sent me this fantastic card of Kate & William! I love the stamp, too. I’ve never seen it.

Favorite cheese: Taleggio

Antje is from Gothenburg, Sweden and she sent me this super cool mapcard. I really loved seeing which Swedish animal names were similar to English names like lox / lax, beaver / baver and otter / utter. 🙂

Favorite cheese: Sergei doesn’t have a favorite but he likes Herrgårdsost (a semi-hard Swedish cheese made from cow’s milk)

MY FIRST POSTCARD FROM SWEDEN!!!!! 🙂 Sergei in Lund, Sweden sent me this beautiful Art Nouveau card. It’s a poster for the Cloetta company that makes chocolate and other goodies. I just love the postmark but the woman’s eyes on the stamp are rather creepy! 🙂
