Jersey, Channel islands

001 002

Hello there friends! Bouônjour!

It has been a while since my last post, but here I am back with this beautiful and special card from the tiny Channel island Jersey! Thank you so much Mel!!

Funny story. I contacted Mel for a private swap and she just got the adress of my mother from the official postcrossing! What were the odds?! This was really weird and yet cool somehow 😀

The island of Jersey is the largest of the Channel Islands. It is very close to the french coast and because of that french is also widely spoken on Jersey. Also, it has a an own regional language called Jèrrias.

I send love!

Castle Cornet, Guernsey, Channel Islands, Great Britain

Hello friends!

Today was definetly one of my lucky days! Look what the mailman brought to me: A card from the island Guernsey. It belongs to the Channel islands and they depend to the British crown.

I got this card from Monica. She lives there and she has a very nice postcard blog too! Meet her here:*click*

Monica writes me, that the Castle Cornet on the card is about 800 years old, and that people only were able to reach it by boat, when it was built. It was used until 1945! A really long time!

I send love
