|Map of Guadeloupe - French West Indies|
Friday, November 01, 2013
My dear sister-in-law Anabela went to Guadeloupe two weeks ago (no, I'm not envious at all!) and she sent me a lot of postcards from that Caribbean Paradise. Today I've got five and I'll start by posting this beautiful Map-Card, an amazing contribution for my map collection. Thank you so much Belita - I'm glad you had the chance to make this romantic getaway with Eric. This postcards took 8 days to arrive!
