There are currently 195 Countries recognised by the United Nations, and I hope to collect a postcard from each and every one of them. Getting a postcard from certain countries will be difficult I am sure, but I do like a challenge. I am doing this using my Interpals Profile and the Postcrossing website. I hope to have exchanges with lots of people and gain some insight into different cultures and backgrounds.
I love turtles so I was happy to get this postcard all the way from Greece. It reminds me of my own travels to Crete. Not that long ago I was sitting around the lake in Agios Nikolaos sipping on a beer and playing backgammon with my brother, when a sea turtle swam into the lake, showing off its fantastic swimming skills to everybody who watched! Postcard #16.
