Évora - PORTUGAL - UNESCO #361

Another sent to myself postcard - in a weekend drive across Alentejo, I've stopped in Évora (a city I visit often - just love to walk on those streets filled with memories) and mailed one more UNESCO WHS card... 3 down, 959 to go! This postcard took 2 days to arrive!

UNESCO #361 - Historic Centre of Évora - PORTUGAL

This museum-city, whose roots go back to Roman times, reached its golden age in the 15th century, when it became the residence of the Portuguese kings. Its unique quality stems from the whitewashed houses decorated with azulejos and wrought-iron balconies dating from the 16th to the 18th century. Its monuments had a profound influence on Portuguese architecture in Brazil.

My first postcard from a POSTCROSSING user!!! Believe me it's was an amazing feeling to open the mailbox and see this little fella looking at me... this was my first successful direct swap in the POSTCROSSING forum, I'm sure many others will follow! Thanks Anita for showing me a place that I didn't know (but I really wish to visit now) and engross my UNESCO colection... 2 down, 960 to go ! This postcard took 9 days to arrive!

UNESCO #99 - Natural and Cultural Heritage of the Ohrid region - MACEDONIA

Situated on the shores of Lake Ohrid, the town of Ohrid is one of the oldest human settlements in Europe. Built mainly between the 7th and 19th centuries, it has the oldest Slav monastery (St Pantelejmon) and more than 800 Byzantine-style icons dating from the 11th to the end of the 14th century. After those of the Tretiakov Gallery in Moscow, this is considered to be the most important collection of icons in the world.

Convent of Christ - Tomar - PORTUGAL - UNESCO #265

Ok, some of you will consider it cheating, because I've send this one to myself, but as I said before, that's an old habit I have and will maintain it... when visiting a new city, monument or country I usually send a postcard to myself. This is the first time I've done it from Portugal, but it won't be the last, specially from UNESCO WORLD HERITAGE SITES now that I'm starting a UNESCO collection... 1 down, 961 to go! This postcard took 2 days to arrive!

UNESCO #265 - Convent of Christ in Tomar - PORTUGAL

Originally designed as a monument symbolizing the Reconquest, the Convent of the Knights Templar of Tomar (transferred in 1344 to the Knights of the Order of Christ) came to symbolize just the opposite during the Manueline period – the opening up of Portugal to other civilizations.

Hello World!

Hi... My name is João Nogueira and I'm a 38 years old high school teacher from Portugal. Since I was a young boy, one of the happiest moments of my day is to open the mailbox and find out a letter or specially a postcard there waiting for me... unfortunately, with the advent of new technologies in communication like e-mail and IM, these moments became very rare, basically only at Christmas, birthdays and the ones I've sent to myself during hollidays (an habit I've acquired with my wife).
Recently I've stumbled in this site after reading about it in a newspaper - POSTCROSSING, a portal developed by a Portuguese named Paulo Magalhães (bravo!) that unites a worldwide community sharing the same passion: writing and receiving postcards!

After you create your profile, the system generates random addresses between all the active users, you send them a postcard and when they reach their destiny, your address will be the next to be indicated to another user. The concept is amazingly simple and in no time you will become addicted I assure you - and while you wait for those "official" postcards to arrive, you can always arrange a direct postcard swap between members in the Forum.

In this blog I'm going to share all the postcard received, official and direct swap cards; I'll try to keep it updated, but sometimes  it's possible that work only allow me to do that in the weekends...

Hope you like this space, feel free to comment on your favorite entries, and if you want to send me a postcard e-mail me and I gladly publish it in here after receiving it by real mail!
