New Zealand

One more card for today. This lovely official arrived today. I love receiving postcards from New Zealand, they are always a treat and this one is no exception.


It's an all round lovely card - it has a map on it, sheep, waterfall, mountains and other beautiful sceneries.. New Zealand seems like something out of this world, I think it's quite appropriate that the Lord of the Rings was filmed there ;)

Tanya, the sender of this card lives in Christchurch, the largest city in the South Island of New Zealand, and the country's second-largest urban area. The city was in the news last month when a major 7.1 magnitude earthquake struck it, causing an estimated total cost of NZ$4 billion in damage. Tanya told me that everyone is fine, so thankfully it looks like the earthquake didn't kill anyone.

The stamp is from a set of 7 stamps called 'Scenic Definitives' from 2009. This one here shows Russell.
