Deadpool Postcard – How Cool Is That?

Hello guys! These cards are from my friend from Reddit – Shatte from Russia, and those are one of my favorite ones, because they are handmade, and yes, I love them so much!

You’ve seen Deadpool, haven’t you? Well, I haven’t, and maybe I’m missing a lot. You never know. But I got this card from Shatte that is connected to Eat, Pray, Love too, and trust me, I’d never even figure that out if you didn’t tell me on the back side of the card. (I’m a blonde. )

Then, there is this card too, again from Shatte. I have to be honest, the songs you write about in the card weren’t familiar to me, but after I heard them, awwh maaan, it all made sense. Now I know why it hurts so much when you hear it! It hurts me too, even physical, just like you said!

In the end, I do want to thank you for sending me those card. And also for telling me that you’re happy to send them, because I make good thank you posts. You only forget one thing – if it wasn’t for SPECIAL PEOPLE like you are, there would be no posts at all. ๐Ÿ™‚

Postcard of nature

Have you ever been to Russia, guys? I haven’t. I want to go. Basically, I want to go to all the places I haven’t been, which makes sense, right? It makes sense to me ๐Ÿ™‚

Thanks to Larisa, I got this amazing card from Sochi, Russia. I love it because it’s unusual to me. It is the entrance of the famous Sochi Park, and it reminds me of the place I lived when I was in France in the summer 2014. Larisa says a lot of rare plants grow there, and I love that fact. It is so beautiful, and green, and colorful, and I love it!

How Moscow reminds me of my travels

First of all, I’ve never been to Moscow. Secondly, I’ve never been to Russia either. But yet, this postcard from Julia reminded me of my travels…

This is a postcard of The Novosibirsk State Philharmonic Orchestraย ย . It’s not that I am a fan of Orchestras. I do like them, but I don’t go to see them play often.

It reminded me of my travels, of my wandering around the cities. Some cities full of life and people, and some of them quiet and unnoticed. It reminded me how I walk around, looking both sides, and trying to find something in common with all the buildings surrounding me. Trying to find a single clue in the architecture, that will prove me that that country has one way of building things.

It reminds me of my walks in Valbonne, France , where parks are green and people are happy. Where they smile at each other for no reason and they wander around the city every day, for years. It reminds me of the smell of the cheese on the Friday market, the warm baguette and the olives.

It reminds me of the street of Salzburg, Austria, where Mozart’s house is. The ice-cream shop right opposite from that, where they put you more chocolate cream that you ever hoped for. The children running around, with their fingers sticky from the ice-creams they ate.

It reminds me of Genova, Italy, and the Juliet’s balcony. The shop for love stuff right on the corner, and the millions of locks there, reminding me how lucky I am. All the names written on the walls, and all the people kissing each other right there, where the most famous love story happened a long time ago.

And in the end, it reminds me of Skopje, Macedonia, my city, where people are always in hurry, but you can still see some random faces sitting in the park and enjoying life. The taste of the cold beer on a sunny day, and the songs in your head, telling you everything will be okay.

I love travelling. I miss travelling. A lot.

A Russian Treasure

Have you ever heard about the famous Russian dolls? I’ll tell youย something about them…

The Russian doll, called Matryoshka doll, is a set of wooden dolls, with the same style, but diffenet in size, so they can all fit one into another. It is a part from the Russian tradition, and Matryoshka actually is a diminutive form of the first name “Matryona”.

Traditionally, the first layer is a woman, that is dressed in a ย long and shapelessย traditional Russian peasant jumper dress , called sarafan. The figures inside the doll may be either man or wife, and it represents a typical Russian family, and the smallest piece of the set is a baby doll.

The dolls are always connected to a certain theme, which is connected to the Russian culture, like the Soviet Leaders theme, or a Russian Fairy-Tale. The Matryoshka doll is also knows as the Babushka doll, and “babushka” means grandmother in Russian.

Thanks to Lana from postcrossing, I got this amazing card. I remembered the days when I had a set of these dolls, and it was a Russian family, with a grandma and grandpa, mom and dad and a small baby, and I used to play so much with them. Now it is rare to find them in Macedonia.

Moscow Kremlin – Russia

A card from Russia again. I love Russia, because it’s full of history and tradition. One of the most popular building is the Moscow Kremlin, which is a symbol of Moscow.

On the picture, you can also see three cathedrals – masterpieces of Russian architecture of the 16th century. Isn’t this postcard lovely.

THANK YOU ARIA, FOR THE AMAZING CARD!

Now I have a question for you, dear readers:

Tell me about a building or a place in your country, that has a lot of history about it. I’d love to hear that ๐Ÿ™‚
