The World On My Doorstep

An ever-expanding postcard blog

Maya Galore!


This fantastic set of postcards arrived as a wonderful surprise yesterday from Ignacio in Mexico. Clockwise from the top left, they show The Temple of Venus – Chichen Itza, The Temple of Jaguars – Chichen Itza, The Head of the Plumed Serpent – Chichen Itza and The Principal Pyramid – Tulum. Any regular followers of my blog will know my degree was in Archaeology of the Maya, so these cards are pride of my collection now and to add to their uniqueness, they are vintage too! So perfect! Love them!

A First From Puerto Rico!

This stunning card comes from Eduardo in Puerto Rico as part of a direct swap that took an uncountable amount of weeks! But I received it in the end. I just LOVE how blue the sea is! He tells me that Luquillo is a very touristy town as it has beautiful beaches but also a lot of traditional Puerto Rican food.
