On of lovely orange juice and the other one from Ukraine. So nice :) It has traveled a distance of 1,830 km in 13 days! The sender recommend me the Twilight series. I have never read them but I hear nice reviews about those books!

15 April 2012 - RU-859823 - Moscow

Well, I always say this when I receive a card from Moscow, Russia . I have been there in 2009 and I have seen all those highlights on this card. It is a beautiful Moscow by Night picture. It has traveled a distance of 2,205 km in 28 days.

The sender of this card also recommend a lot of books :) I should write them down on my "books to read list" but I'm wondering if I can find them in the Netherlands. Some of those books are from Russian writers.

I received my 5th card of Lithuania on 9 april. It has been 1,5 year ago when I received my last card from this country. It has traveled a distance of 1,492 km in 9 days. It shows us the capital city Vilnius. It shows us the Sint John Church.

"Political centre of the Grand Duchy of Lithuania from the 13th to the end of the 18th century, Vilnius has had a profound influence on the cultural and architectural development of much of eastern Europe. Despite invasions and partial destruction, it has preserved an impressive complex of Gothic, Renaissance, Baroque and classical buildings as well as its medieval layout and natural setting."

3 April 2012 - HK - 56091 - Hong Kong

Wauw. I was so happy when I found a card from Hong Kong in my mailbox! It's my second card from this country. I received the first one in September 2009... very long ago! It has traveled a distance of 9,350 kms in 6 days! Very fast I guess! It shows us Tsim Sa Tsui in Hong Kong.

Funny fact: Those four cards I have received in the last days, are all send on 28th March. Only two of my send cards were registered on that day. I hope that this does not mean that I have to wait very long until I will get my next card! Right now I have 268 received cards and 267 sent cards.

No, it's no joke. It is a coincidence that I write a new blog on 1 April about my return into Postcrossing. I know I have quit before, but it is always because I send so many cards, that in the end, I don't have time to put them on my blog and so on. So for now, I only send a few cards a month, in the hope I will stay in the project for a while!

The first card I have received after this break comes from.... The Netherlands . It shows us a creation of vegetables :) It has to purpose a mouse. So funny! The sender of this card also recommend me some books to read! Well, I hope my mailbox will be happy a lot of days this month ;)
