Monthly Fav. Surprise RR - January 20

I didn't join this RR in December, way too much mail to send that month, but last month I joined again. January's cards arrived from Austria, Philippines, Taiwan and Belarus. 

Yay, Marienne sent me a new card to my still small Happy Postcrossing from collection. Thank you so much.
On the card stand out two famous Austrians, Mozart and Freud. When it comes to food, some of the most famous specialities are Kaiserschmarrn, a sweet dessert, Sacher Torte and Wiener schnitzel. 
Other things worth to mention are the Clock Tower of Graz, Hohensalzburg Fortress in Salzburg, Lake Neusiedl and Lipizzaner horses.

The Philippines is an archipelago of over 7,000 islands. Guyam Island is one of the three islands located in the Surfing Capital of the Philippines, Siargao.
It is an islet that has a small stretch of powdery-white sand and dotted with coconut trees. It also has interesting coral rock formations that are perfect for snorkeling. The rest of the island (facing the Pacific) is battered with rocks. A few meters away from the island, tourists can enjoy surfing and swimming. - in: https://www.vigattintourism.com
The card was sent by Aiden. 

Surrounded by sea on four sides, Taiwan has a total of 36 lighthouses in different shapes. Keelung Lighthouse is located on the top of a hill near the Port of Keelung in northern Taiwan. 
Card sent by Chi. 

Tanya sent me my erd card of the the Corpus Christi Church in Nesvizh. It is part of the Architectural, Residential and Cultural Complex of the Radziwill Family at Nesvizh, an Unesco World Heritage Site.
