Tanita surely does know how to share with me her Scandinavian Springtime sunshine though they still get snow with minus 4 degrees celsius on the scale! She has a nephew who has a 14 months old boy who learns to walk and say some words. Well, I have a grand-daughter who is close to two years old who is showing her athletic talent.

Tanita loves theatre, art, reading thrillers, knitting and water gym and traveling. She had been to Bali and one day, she might see Australia too! Such the beauty of postcards exchange through Postcrossing! You got to see many places without leaving your home country!

Thanks Tanita for wishing me and my family "Laughter and Joy!" I send the same back to you too from Down Under.

While Spring is in the air over in the Land of the Rising Sun, it's Autumn in Land Down Under! Such a disparity of season across the polar zone!

NSW and Sydney Postcrossing

Held at Petersham Old Town Hall, Crystal Street, the New South Wales and Sydney Postcrossing gathered together for the first time last 26th February 2012. Laurant Villoing, the Meet-up Coordinator, had neatly organized the gathering which I unfortunately missed. I arrived too late with compliments to a train schedule disruption.

The meetup was in conjunction to the New South Wales Postcard Collectors Society Inc. Postcard Fair.


Schedule of the next meeting:

My Travelogue

My first time outside the country Australia towards the end of November 1991 prior to my operation the following year. I was given a clear go to travel with my two little children.

This postcard is Ferieninsel LINDAU im Bodense, southern part of Germany beyond Ulm. I sent this postcard to my ex-husband. Here's what I wrote:
6th January 1992
"We crossed this bridge today - walking around the beautiful island of Lindau. At the background to the left mountain is Austrian Alp and the Swiss Alp to the right.. Lindau Island stands in the border between two countries. People travel there by train running through in an underwater tunnel. There are many hotels, restaurants and fabulous tourist places to visit. The two little girls have great time walking and finally bumped into a cabbie house enjoying the slippery dip and see saw. We stopped at the Train Station to buy this card. See you at the airport on the 18th."
