Five on Friday - Postcards

Hello

Thanks for visiting.


Amy at Love Made My Home has kindly put up a link-up for Five on Friday today, so there is plenty to have a look at by following the links.

Sometimes you can't resist buying a postcard or two to keep as well as send when you're off exploring, can you!  Here are five I have found in my cupboard for you to have a look at.

One - Ludlow

How about all these beautiful doors from Ludlow! It would be good to walk round this Shropshire town looking for the doors but no doubt some will have been repainted by now.


Two - Bath

You can see the shape of the Royal Crescent and the Circus so clearly from the air. Is it a question mark or perhaps a key?


Three - Holland

This one is so colourful with its china, windmills, cheese and clogs.  Such a beautiful country.


Four - Dordogne

These triangular formations were found underground in the caves in Les Eyzies de Tayac in the Dordogne, France - Grotte du Grand Roc.  So unusual to be triangular.


Five - Cardiff

We weren't able to visit Cardiff Castle when we were in the area so I just had to buy a postcard to remind me to go back again one day.  Still haven't been!


There we are, just a quick taster of some wonderful places.

Have a good week.

  5. Thanks for sharing your five! I love postcards. I have lots of them. They are cheap souvenirs remembering a lovely day out. I finally found something to put them in so I have no excuse to get organised!

  9. Gorgeous post cards. I think it's a real sham that people don't seem to send them any more (or maybe they just don't send them to me!)

    1. Thanks Karen. You can sometimes pick up old cards in antique shops, it's interesting to see how the towns have changed and to read the message on the back!

    1. Bath is so beautiful but the aerial shot gives a bit of a surprise doesn't it.

  21. I love postcards. They make nice little souvenirs ... don't take up much space... and sweet memories. I think my favorite is the card with the doors although Bath is coming in a very close second. Have a fun week!

  22. Do hope you get to visit Cardiff someday, it has improved so much in the last 10 years with regeneration and investment. I do like the Dordogne postcard too, how unusual to see triangular formations - quite amazing really

    1. We did enjoy our trip to Cardiff and the Bay but ran out of time to go into the castle. The city is full of interesting things, we'll definitely be back.
