Not only did I receive my second postcard thru postcrossing from Australia today, the same can be said for Canada. This one's from Montréal. I have been to Montréal myself, although that's probably not worth mentioning. It was supposed to be a simple airport transfer on my way to Winnipeg, but the terrorist threat of August 2006 forced me to spend the night at an airport hotel, as my transfer at Heathrow ended up takingseven hours longer than expected. I didn't pick up too many postcards while I was ther... read more »
Today I receivedthis beautiful postcard of Neuschwanstein castle, in Bavaria, Germany. It's situated above the village of Hohenschwangau, near Füssen. It was commissioned in the 19th century by King Ludwig II. I kind of nearly went there myself in 1996 on a school trip to Munich, but starting the year I went the visit to this castle was replaced by a visit to a castle complex in Chiemsee lake, called Herrenchiemsee, followed by an afternoon visit to Salzburg. This can hardly be called a disappointment, a... read more »
This is it, the postcard that got my collection started. It wasn't the first postcard that I owned, though. The first one was actually from Berndorf, Austria. I received this one in July 1996from a German penfriend by the name of Daniela. I asked her some questions about former East Germany, and the answer to my question aboutname changes of streets and buildingswas illustratedwiththis postcard. On the back she wrote that the Theater des Friedens (the Peace Theater) became theOpera House, while the Lenin... read more »
Separated by just a few months I received two postcards that show Songshan, or Mount Song, in China PR. The first one came from pcm sbwdyhm, the second very recently from pcm SmileMLY. Songshan is located on the south bank of the Yellow (or Huang He) river, in the Henan district, and is comprised of a total of 36 peaks, the tallest standing at 1494m. above sea level (will translate to feet soon). Songshan is considered holy in the Taoist faith, and you can find many sacred temples there. read more »

Or as it says on the postcard, Niasvizh. And I can find two more alternate spellings. I acquired this postcard thru a private swap with pcm Korisa. This postcard from the Riftur series shows Nesvizh castle and the Corpus Christi church. The castle is actually a World Heritage Site, and was founded in 1583. It belonged to the noble Radziwill family. The Corpus Christi church was completed in 1593, and was a big influence on later Polish, Belarussian, and Lithuanian architechture. read more »
