Our Travels Continue ...


Katrin´s "Travel around the World" swap continues, and this month we all can pick a town - I´ve chosen the one I´m living in because it would never be chosen by anyone else :-)
Yes, Münster is as nice as the picture shows, but it´s not important at all, and one of the few important persons connected to Münster is the famous writer Annette von Droste-Hülshoff who was born in the castle "Burg Hülshoff" near Münster in 1797. So I´ve used a postage stamp of her for my card that goes to Sigrid on Monday.
Oh, you may ask, what does the bike have to do with Münster? Well, come here and you´ll know: You must be fast to escape all those bicycles cruising everywhere ... Münster has twice as many bikes as it has inhabitants (about half a million for only 280.000 people)!

deine karte ist einfach PHANTASTISCH geworden, wie immer. mich begeistert immer auf's neue, wie du deine elemente perfekt collagemäßig in szene setzt. und außerdem macht die karte lust, auch mal nach münster zu kommen. :-)
