New Feature! Postal Pick of the Week

I will be starting a new feature to get some more photographs and art from around the world displayed on my blog. I look forward to getting to know more about the far corners of this world I have yet to discover. If you would like your images to be shared please write to:

20 – 26th February 2012
Having been lucky enough to receive a few items in the mailbox this week it was a little tricky to decide what to pick but I finally settled upon correspondence from Vika R. because it had everything that great snail mail should:  A large serving of good old fashioned gossip and stories to keep me entertained as well as this striking postcard of the Kiyevskaya-Koltsevaya metro station in Russia.  I like intriguing postcards which don’t show off the typical tourist attractions but rather the secret wonders from around the globe; and it’s given me the curious urge to take a tour around Moscow’s metro stations.

Previous picks:

paris-postcardThe view from the Palais de Chaillot sent by Taf D. because it was a lovely surprise and an interesting vantage point of what would otherwise be a very usual snapshot of a tourist hotspot.

jaen-postcardGemika L.  for her card sent from Jaen.  Chosen because the hidden gem of the card is in the background – the Castillo de Santa Cataluna.

For a colourful, pretty card filled with all the kinds of exciting news that only a true friend could send, Emily P.  Also because this is the second card I have received from her which depicts smarties on the front and I do always appreciate chocolate!
