This card was sent by rita_simões, for the RR Portugal x Portugal. We live quite near so she thought it would be nicer to send a card from another place than Sintra :) And she sent a card from Assisi, one Unesco place that was missing in my collection. We can see a panoramic view of the city with the St. Rufinus and St. Claire churches.


Yesterday I received one card from another group of the RR Portugal x Portugal. It was sent by martinha, and it shows the Ferreiros Tower, remains of Guarda Castle.

This is completely unusual: these cards didn´t arrive at my mailbox. But they´re so special to me that I decided to share them with you. The first ones were an offer of my special friend Ana. I usually support her at her mountain bikes trips and she support my postcards tours :)

The next ones were bought by me in Sagres, during a Mountain Bike trip: my husband Ricardo, Ana and her boyfriend Nuno and some others were doing their crazy trip and I was wainting for them in Sagres, with the car to take them to the place where we were spending the weekend. These cards were so amazing that I couldn´t resist to keep ones for myself.


I received the last card from the RR Portugal x Russia. It was sent by Natalie natuzzi. It shows a beautiful night view of Saint Petersburg. We can see the Neva river, with the Trinity Bridge and Peter and Paul Fortress at the back.


Once again I joined a lighthouse RR. This is the first card. It was sent by Sarip63 from Finland. It shows the Gustavsvärn Lighthouse. It was bult in 1951 and is 11m high. In the island there´s also some ruins from fortifications built in 1789 that have been destroyed in the Crimean war.


This week I received a card from a a new country: Serbia. This card was a lottery prize for guessing the name of the baby girl of Berislav Buberis. It shows the building of gimnasium in Subotica. The building was built at the end of the XIXth century and it´s one of the most beautiful buildings of Subotica.

Today I received only one card. It came from Switzerland and took only two days to arrive! It was sent by Jutta PaulaB, and is the last one from the RR Portugal x Switzerland. It shows the Benedictine Convent of St. John at Müstair. It has Switzerland´s greatest series of murals.

Today I received a huge surprise!! An official card from Argentina! It is a huge surprise because it´s from a rare country in Postcrossing (its ID is AR-734) and because I already have more received than sent cards, I guess it´s due to the expired ones. It was sent by leo_argentino and it shows the 9th of July Avenue.

Unesco from Switzerland

Today I received a card from Andy masito. It came from the RR Portugal X Switzerland. Andy is a really nice guy and sent me a card from one UNESCO place :) The cards shows the Swiss Alps Jungfrau-Aletsch.

China and Switzerland

Today I received a postcard from China, a new UNESCO site.It was sent by zhuangyt, through a private swap. It shows Baofeng Lake, that is part of "Wulingyuan Scenery and Historic Interest Area", classified since 1992. A natural area of an extraordinary beauty and home of some endangered animal and plants species.

I received too a beautiful multiviews card from Switzerland. It was sent by Grace azurri. We´re both part of a RR Portugal X Switzerland. It shows some typical swiss pictures.

The first post

Hello. This is my first post in english, but I already have a blog written in portuguese, so I´ll start for one recent and special card. It was sent by anagahan from Macedonia. Besides it cames from a special country, it´s also a Unesco site, the only one there.

From now on, I´ll post the cards that I receive, at the same time that in my portuguese blog. That way, no one misses anything :)
