The World On My Doorstep

An ever-expanding postcard blog

An English Church in Barbados!

Another great card from Merissa. This one shows Saint John’s Church in Barbados, which she’s chosen for its English style architecture. What I really love about this card is that it could be England with the architecture, the leafy deciduous trees, the dappled effect of the sun on the church… Then you look closer and see a tell-tale palm tree that you’d never find over here! Beautiful card!

Carribbean Coastline

This arrived today in my mail from Barbados from Interpals penpal, Merissa. It came in an envelope with another card from the island (which I’ll mention in a separate post) and with a stamp of Will and Kate on their wedding day! Before I talk about this card, I’d like to mention that it was sent on Thursday, and today is Monday, meaning that, excluding the Royal Mail’s Royal Day Off on Sunday, it took all of four days to get here. I am incredibly impressed! Moving on though, I love this card, the picture just seems so peaceful with crystal waters that you just don’t get over here. Merissa also tells me about their gorgeous weather too. Makes me jealous!
