My Longest-Travelled Card!

on January 17, 2013

VenezuelaThis stunning card is my first from Venezuela and comes from Luis. I can’t believe it reached me TWO HUNDRED AND FORTY SIX days after it was post-marked! Wow! It seems to have traveled to my old flat in London before being forwarded on to me here. I absolutely love it though! The card shows Madriski in the archipelago of Los Roques National Park (which contains 50 islands and is 36km wide by 246km in length – incredible!). Luis tells me the only island with a permanent population is Gran Roque which has about 1200 residents. He also says that the park has one of the most diverse and well-preserved coral reefs in the Caribbean. Beautiful!
