Spokane is the 2nd largest city in Washington State with a population of 205,500. Here is a view from Riverfront Park. Thanks Nicol!

Jasper National Park, Alberta, Canada

Jasper National Park is the largest national park in the Canadian Rockies. This waterfall is called Athabasca Falls, and it's only 23 meters high. Instead of its height it's known for the force of falling water. I love that little rainbow there! Thanks Linda!

Nationalpark Bayerischer Wald

Bayerischer Wald is a national park in the South-East of Germany. It was created in 1970 and is now 240 km² wide. Danke Carmen!

Tuapse Resort, Russia

I got this amazingly beautiful waterpark postcard from Russia! The waterpark is called Dolphin, and it's located on Black Sea coast in Tuapse Resort. I'm crazy about amusement parks. Since I don't like swimming I don't like visiting waterparks, but I love them because they are so colorful!

Usually I don't take pictures of stamps and I'm not so much into them, but I just had to show these two! I love them. Thanks Elena! :)

Lightning McQueen

Still can't believe I got this one, Cars (in Finnish: Autot) is the best movie EVER! And it arrived in perfect condition, just like if nobody had even touched it! xD Thanks soooo much Ana! Check out her blog at :]

Winnie the Pooh

My first Winnie the Pooh card! :) There are some abrasions and one corner was warped, that's why I had problems with scanning - but I like those, they just show that the card has traveled! Thanks Gosia!

By the way, in Finnish 'Winnie the Pooh' is 'Nalle Puh'. :)

Moscow, Russia

Got 2 tag cards today! This beautiful view is from Moscow. Thanks Julia!

Vladivostok, Russia

Amazing view of Vladivostok, Russia, in the evening. I love those city lights! Thanks Elena!

Gotta catch 'em all!

MY FIRST POKÉMON POSTCARD! I've been waiting for this moment. Pikachu has always been my favorite Pokémon (along with Squirtle) so you can just imagine how nostalgic this picture and the sentence "Gotta catch 'em all!" are to me... I watched Pokémon when I was young, and I wanted to become a Pokemon trainer when I turn 10 year old :D I miss those times. Thanks so much Veronique!

Sochi, Russia

Beautiful view of naval station in Sochi. Thanks so much Olya!

I ♥ Unicorns!

I got this unique card on Sticker tag. When you look closely you can see that these unicorns are actually stickers! But I would never dare to use them, it would ruin this beautiful card. :) Thanks!
Another great day! Received my first card from Japan and my first 2 Pokémon postcards! Overall of 2 official and 4 tag cards.

Absolutely beautiful card from my friend in Canada! I love the colors. We don't have any mountains in Finland, so I hope I can travel & see some one day! Thanks Linda!
Today was a good day! Got 2 official cards from Poland and Great Britain. Both of them are so beautiful, you should check them out! And the card from Poland came with translation, I love their language.

I also got a direct swap card from my friend in Canada and tag card from Russia. Plus today has been the hottest day in ages, about 27 °C and really sunny! I love this weather! :)

Owen Sound, Ontario, Canada

Amazing card from my friend Aimee from Canada! I love autumn leaf colors, even though autumn isn't my favorite season. Thanks so much!
Yesterday I finally had energy to write lots of cards. I've been ill for a long time, so last week I visited doctors and they said I have some kind of infection in my stomach. I got medicines, and luckily it's getting better now. :)

Here's what I wrote yesterday:
- 2 official cards to China and Netherlands
- direct swaps to Los Angeles (CA), Hooksett (NH), Italy and Greece
- a thank you card to Germany
- 2 postcards to Finland
- and a letter to my penpal.

I'm going to write few more today; at least direct swaps to Finland, Slovenia and Carmel (IN). Also 3 of my official cards have been registered today, so I'll send 3 new right away, let's see where they travel! ;D
