한라산의 철쭉꽃 The Royal Azalea Blossom Of Hallasan,Jeju Island, Korea

I am loving this card sooo much! Seriously I'm like a sucker for Korean and Japanese postcards.
And this card is super special because it's from Jeju, an island to the south of Korea and one of the locations for the Korean version of Hana Yori Dango (Boys Over Flowers)^-^

Rice Terraces,Batad,Philippines

This card I recieved way back in April...(I have a massive back log of cards to be scanned and upped)
It shows rice terraces that were made 200o years ago by the Ifugaos(sp?), with simple tools.
Jane Betito sent this to me as a private swap and I would love to swap again=]=]
I really love the colours of the greenery in the card, and the shape of the terraces, even though they are quite old.(UNESCO site)

Gittidas Plateau,Kaghan Valley,Pakistan

Another first! This time from Pakistan.
(I actually got this a while back, but I just recently scanned it and I'm trying to upload a few before I go on holiday)
Its a really lovely shot, especially how it pans out from the water and up to the mountains.
