Nice friday

After an holiday without receiving cards, it's always good to get some on the next day, and today i found 4 cards in my mailbox, 3 from Croatia sent by Masha "tram" in Serbia and 1 from Portugal sent by Ana "ninocas".

Aerial view of Split Harbour.

"The statue of Gregory of Nin by Ivan Meštrović in Split is a heavily trafficked tourist site in the town, which the toe of the statue shows. Rubbing the statue's toe is said to bring good luck. The toe has been worn smooth and shiny as a result. Currently, the statue sits to the east of the Palace and Old Town of Split, just outside the Golden Gate." - in: wikipedia.

Since 1979, the historic center of Split has been included in the UNESCO list of World Heritage Sites.

Algarve is the southernmost region of mainland Portugal.

"In the 1960s the Algarve became a very popular destination for tourists, mainly from Britain. It has since become a common destination for Germans, Dutch and Irish people. Many of these tourists own their own property in the region. There are Algarve-based English-written publications and newspapers specifically addressed to this community. In addition to the natural beauties and plenty of beaches, the Algarve has invested in the creation of a network of golf courses. Well-known beaches in the Algarve range from Praia da Luz to Armação de Pêra." - in: wikipedia.
