Official cards

This one is from Netherlands. I've always adored these aerial views of islands, and finally got one! This island is called Aruba and it's located in the southern Caribbean Sea, near to Venezuela. It's 33 kilometers (21 miles) long. Even though this island is located far from Netherlands, it's one of the three countries that form the Kingdom of the Netherlands. It became autonomous from Netherlands Antilles in 1986.

The card was sent from the middle of Netherlands, not from Aruba, but it's still awesome! So unusual to me. :) Thanks Paul!

My first Kaj Stenvall card, and from Finland, of course! Before Postcrossing I really didn't like his art, but thanks to this hobby I've seen more paintings and started to like them. I even added it to my postcard wishlist :) Thanks Raisa-Hannele!
