I blogged yesterday about my first postcard received in 2014. Despite claims otherwise this postcard is the third one I received this year.
If you’re not up on European royalty, this is the king and queen of Sweden – King Carl XVI Gustaf and Queen Silvia. I had to look them up, as there is no caption on the front or back of this postcard.
“Jan. 1, 2014
Hello from Sweden! Your 1st postcard of 2014, another addition to your European Royals collection from perhaps the most boring selection of postcards I have ever come across. At least the stamps are pretty. We’re here for the World Junior Hockey, the place is heaving with Canadians, miraculously we survived the [unknown] fireworks.”
Interestingly, this Swedish postcard was mailed before my actual first postcard of the new year, but the other one, from Denmark, arrived much quicker – those Danes are indeed great!
