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!

Algarve - PORTUGAL
Now that I'm back home, I can enjoy again the nice feeling of opening the mailbox at the end of the day and discover some postcards waiting for me - it's really nice and kind of a comforting feeling, specially after a difficult day. Today I received two cards from my sister sent from her vacation in Algarve early this month. Thank you very much Helena, unfortunately this year I'm not going to Algarve, but thanks to your cards I can still feel a little of the scent of that beautiful mackerel and chill on that rocky beach! This postcard took 11 days to arrive!

region of mainland Portugal. The region coincides with the Faro
District, and has as its administrative centre the city of Faro.
Production of food, which includes fish and other seafood, fruit,
oranges, carob beans, figs and almonds, is also economically important
in the region. The Algarve is the most popular tourist destination in
Portugal, and one of the most popular in Europe. Almost 10 million
people visit the Algarve every year.
