This is where I share all the postcards I receive thanks to my new addiction: POSTCROSSING! All the official cards and direct swaps will be posted in this blog. If you'd like to send me a postcard, just e-mail me to exchange addresses - I'll send you one card in return! All the cards on this blog were sent from the country of origin!

Southwest Coast, Algarve - PORTUGAL - UNESCO TENTATIVE
The Southwest Coast of Portugal is my favorite region for camping - it's a beautiful and very peaceful natural park (UNESCO natural WHS tentative), perfect to recharge the batteries after a year of hardwork... it's exactly what my good friends Marco, Ni, Alberto and Sandra are doing since the beginning of this month... camping and not doing anything (as they say in the cards but using words I can't translate and write here). Thanks a lot guys - I wish I could be there with you! This postcards took 5 days to arrive!

Owing to its geographical position, its landscape diversity and
limited human occupation, the Southwest Coast, an interfacial zone
between the land and the sea, has developed its own specific features
and a variety of habitats which are responsible for the wealth of its
flora and fauna. It is one of the last and most important stretches of
wild coastline in the South of Europe, with great extensions remaining
almost unaltered by human activities and building, and benefiting from
an extremely low demographic density.
