New Zealand, Portugal

These are the cards i've received today. A volcano card from New Zealand sent by Sally "twinkley". She read i like volcanos and she asked me if i wanted to receive another one from NZ. The second card is from Portugal and it was sent by Helena "leninha".

On the back og the card: Mt Ruapehu (2779m) erupting in September 1995 just at sunset, viewed from the National Park township.
"Mount Ruapehu is an active stratovolcano at the southern end of the Taupo Volcanic Zone in New Zealand. Ruapehu is one of the world's most active volcanoes and the largest active volcano in New Zealand.

Mt. Ruapehu served as the setting for Mt. Doom in the The Lord of the Rings film trilogy. It is predominately featured in The Return of the King as Frodo and Sam stumble up—and then get stuck coming down—its slopes." - in: wikipedia

This is the Alferrarede Castle in Alferrarede. This castle is classified as a National Monument but is a private property. The Counts of Alferrarede live there.
