Map of Fiji Islands

Map of Fiji Islands, originally uploaded by naya_hachi.

Wow....I was just sooo surprised this morning to find this postcard on my mail box. It's slightly tinier than a normal size postcard but the picture tells it all. It was the map card of Fiji Islands. i was just sooo thrilled that i was screaming hard....Yaay!!

Actually the card was not sent from Fiji, instead it was sent from the beautiful New Zealand from a really cute cat named Gordon. He said that he had this card from Fiji and thought that i would like it. Promptly i was just thinking that how lucky he was to ever been in Fiji, even probably the most luckiest cat in postcrossing??? :)

Frankly I don't know much about Fiji, but luckily there are some country facts written on the back of the postcard, here say:
"Fiji is, centrally situated in the South-West Pacific and consists of 322 islands scattered between Latitudes 15 and 20 degree South of the Equator with the 180th meridian of Longitude passing through their midst. Fiji is squarely placed on all major sea and air routes through the South Pacific."

So, once again just want to say thanks sooo much for the lovely card Gordon...and mmmeeooow :)

New Zealand Map (Wood Postcard)

Hi all...long time no see :) i know there should be no excuses but just want to give you some background info, that for the last couple of months i was kinda busy adjusting with my new environment since i just moved to Australia in mid of Feb. But now i already have a manageable routine so i want to keep this blog up and running again *BIG grin*

By the time i moved in to my new place, my postcard sending/receiving activities was halted temporarily for some reasons. However i will give you much more details about it on another post. And now i just want to show you one most favorite postcard arrived here so far.

It is my second collection of wood postcard from my dear cousin, Raisha in New Zealand. It's a very nice surprise since she'd promised me one like almost a year ago, but it finally arrived end of last month. She sent it during her last visit to New Zealand.

When it arrived in my 'new' mailbox i was soooo happy that i grinned all the way to my apartment. It was soooo beautiful and really captivating. The print is so clear and has very unique NZ's traditional motives. It also has some basic info about the country. Simply love it.

Thanks you sooo much Raisha!!!
