15 March 2010 - LT - 65179 - Varena

It has been a while ago, when I received a card from Lithuana . It has travelled a distance of 1316 kms in 22 days.

The card shows us Klaipeda and the only other card I have from this country, also show us this UNESCO site ;) I just found out that Lithuana is on the 19th place from most send cards :)

Human habitation of this elongated sand dune peninsula, 98 km long and 0.4-4 km wide, dates back to prehistoric times. Throughout this period it has been threatened by the natural forces of wind and waves. Its survival to the present day has been made possible only as a result of ceaseless human efforts to combat the erosion of the Spit, dramatically illustrated by continuing stabilisation and reforestation projects.
