Charlotte's birthday card

Charlotte also sent a 2nd card for my birthday. Last summer she went to Italy on holidays and she sent me a card she brought from there.
Thank you Lotte :P

"Teramo is a city and comune in the central Italian region of Abruzzo, the capital of the province of Teramo.
The city, 150 kilometres (93 mi) from Rome, is situated between the highest mountains of Appenini and the Adriatic coast. It is indeed one of the few places where you can reach, both the sunny beaches of the Adriatic sea and the 3,000 metres (9,800 ft) covered by snow Appenine peaks, in less than half an hour from the city centre. The town is by the confluence of the Vezzola and Tordino rivers.
One of the main monuments of the city is the majestic Cathedral of San Berardo, built in 1158 by bishop Guido II, in Romanesque style. Noteworthy is the great portal in Gothic style, finished in 1332 by the Roman master Deodato di Cosma. It houses a precious silver paliotto by Nicola of Guardagriele (with 35 scenes of the life of Jesus) and a polyptych by the Venetian artist Jacobello del Fiore depicting the Incoronation of the Virgin. Annexed is a 50 m bell tower." - in: wikipedia
