Postcards from around the World # 14 - Austria II

Another postcard from Austria - not one from a skiing trip like the last one, but from a hiking trip instead.

My mother went on a week-long hiking trip, crossing the Alps from Austria to Italy, and sent me this postcard from in between when staying a night at the Hanauer Hütte. They had had pouring rain that day and heat on the day before.

Are you a hiker? I'm not sure I could manage a trip like this... I do like to hike, but I also like to have days for resting in between :)

The stamp was the same stamp that was also used on the other postcard from Austria, but the postage mark is a city name and not an old boring "letter center" and the Hütte stamped the postcard as well :)

Alles Liebe!

Postcards from around the World # 13 - Australia

Remember when I said we couldn't go skiing with my boyfriends family this year because we had our own trip booked and planned? Instead of standing on a mountain in Austria, we decided to go snorkelling in Australia :) Can't believe this is already four months ago....

We have the habit of sending ourselves a postcard from when we are travelling - but it's always a surprise to one of us :) This time my boyfriend told me not to worry about "our" postcard and I was very happy to find this in my mailbox when we got back.
We spent two weeks in Coral Bay in Western Australia and loved it (duh, otherwise we wouldn't have spent two weeks there....). We didn't get to see a whale shark, but we did get to see turtles - so great!

The stamp is very cute in my opinion :) My boyfriend even saw one of those when we were in Victoria! I opted out of that hike though, so I didn't get to see it. But since we saw soooo many other animals, I'm not too sad. Have you seen the things that are depicted on the stamps you use to send mail?

Alles Liebe,
