The World On My Doorstep

An ever-expanding postcard blog

Bohinj

Slovenia2This beautiful card comes from Leonardo in Slovenia. He tells me that his country is very beautiful and made even better by the fact that only two million people live there – in his words, quality is better than quantity! I couldn’t agree more. He also mentions that the Julian Alps are, in his opinion, the prettiest part of Slovenia. Stunning card!

Red Slovenia!

RedSloveniaThis beautiful card comes from Anna in Russia who was on vacation in Slovenia when she bought this card. Red is my favourite colour so this is awesome – very cheerful! She tells me that the two countries have quite similar nature and that Sovenia was really beautiful. It looks it!

A Much-Appreciated Postcard To Brighten An Otherwise Awful Day

So today was one of those days which just didn’t go well, pretty much from start to finish. After numerous problems (not sleeping well, bad back, extreme tiredness…) throughout the morning, I ended up in hospital this afternoon with a torn ligament in my ankle and not even an exciting story to tell about how it got there. Four hours (yes, four) after being admitted into said hospital, I was released to walk home on some painful crutches. So you can only imagine how glad I was to see a postcard in the mailbox, and a beautiful one at that! This card has an image of absolute natural beauty which I love, not to mention that Sunny, from Slovenia, tells me how the Boka falls are the highest and most powerful in the country. A really gorgeous card!
