|I Love Europe (Map-Card) - LITHUANIA|
Monday, April 28, 2014
More than one week later I finally receive a official Postcrossing postcard (it's incredible the slow pace of the official cards, sent and receive, they always seem to take so much time), this time sent by Ruta from Vilnius, Lithuania. She picked the map of our amazing continent, Europe (even with this recent economical crisis and some political turmoil it's still the best continent to live in the world). I do love Europe and fortunately I already had the chance to visit the majority of its countries... my favorite? Need to ask? Portugal of course! Thank you so much Ruma, Happy Postcrossing! This postcard took 27 days to arrive!
Europe is, by convention, one of the world's seven continents. Comprising the westernmost peninsula of Eurasia, Europe is generally divided from Asia by the watershed divides of the Ural and Caucasus Mountains, the Ural River, the Caspian and Black Seas, and the waterways connecting the Black and Aegean Seas. Europe is bordered by the Arctic Ocean to the north, the Atlantic Ocean to the west, the Mediterranean Sea to the south, and the Black Sea and connected waterways to the southeast. Yet the borders of Europe—a concept dating back to classical antiquity—are somewhat arbitrary, as the primarily physiography term "continent" can incorporate cultural and political elements.
