Dante III, 2011
How spooky! The card unfortunately doesn't give much context behind these skulls but the one on the bottom right has me intrigued. The back of the card does indicate it is from a museum in Strasbourg.
Prague - The Vltava River - Charles Bridge - The Lesser Town - The Prague Castle
The beautiful views of Prague, always worth the visit! Funny I wonder if the sender forgot to put postage on the back since it said it was owing but got here anyways.
Greetings from Stuttgart
Street festival on the Cannstatter Wasen
Most people know about Octoberfest, but what about the Cannstatter Volksfest? This is the 2nd largest festival in Germany and takes place slightly before Octoberfest. Certainly worth checking out if you're in and around Stuttgart around that time!

Design models of Simon Petrikov's stages of deterioration into the Ice King as a result of the crown's powers.
A cool RAS arrived for me, though I haven't really watched Adventure Time, I've heard good things about it. Out of curiousity I did look up this character in particular, the back story is far more in depth than I was expecting for a children's show. Might have to give it a shot again in the future :)
Both cards are from the same sender but for different FB games. The colouring on this card was well done!
Some more New Year related mail, this time from my friend in China. This is one of the cards designed for the New Year but apparently there are more to come. I do love the detail put into the feathers of the hen (or rooster I suppose?)
I swapped for a postmark and got this interesting card. While the Town Crier may be more for the tourists but it must have been important back in the day. The tree stump is what makes this card honestly XD
The second postmark on the side of the card, nice and clear!
