The World On My Doorstep

An ever-expanding postcard blog

Stormy Malta

on October 22, 2013

postcards2_2This spectacular card from Valentina in Malta is just stunningly beautiful and is my first from the tiny country. Malta is a small, independent island in the Mediterranean Sea, one of the world’s smallest, but most densely populated countries. Valentina, who has recently moved there from Bulgaria, says she is looking forward to choppy seas in winter since she loves the cold. She tells me that the yellow stone used in all these buildings is typical in Malta and that her favourite name is Dimitar – her son’s and father’s name – which has its origins in the Greek Goddess Demetra. Lovely card! I think it really shows the calm before the storm perfectly!

    *cough* I might have advertised your blog/collection to a certain lady living in Malta… And now I’m happy I did – gorgeous card! 😀

  2. This postcard would have gone straight to my top 10!
