Postcard from Slovenija

My second Postcrossing postcard has arrived and this time my card is sent from the town of  Jesenice in Slovenia. It shows a painting of the old blast furnace and iron works building in Jesenice, painted by Austrian artist Heinrich Wettach (1858-1929).
This postcard took 10 days to get to me and travelled 6,879 km (4,274 miles). Thank you, Jose!

How fun and interesting to be the recipient of postcards from around the world. I can picture someone collecting the postcards and then making a huge collage.

Now isn't that the cat's meow! We should just get addresses from people we know virtually and do the same thing. And why not?!!!

What an interesting project.
Lovely view of the old building.

what a fun project!! I love the idea. And not only do you get an amazing postcard from different parts of the world, you also get a postage stamp, too.

I went to the site and it looks like something fun that MY WIFE would like to do. I'm going to show it to her. Thanks!

I have collected postcards since I was a child and have many, but most of mine are vintage. Although when we travel I always buy some in each city. I guess you have to give your address to this site – that would scare me a bit. Is the address given only to the person sending you the card?

Slovenia! Doesn't it look beautiful?

Sigh. Another one for the wanderlust list.
