Klaipeda, Lithuania

After a long hiatus, I am back home :) We went on vacation, so by the time I got home, my little Post box was pretty full! Very exciting!

I will try to post some of my absolute favorite cards within next few days. There are a lot of them now, as I participated in the large monthly Round Robins.

This card arrived from Lithuania, from a town called Klaipeda. The sender explained that it is a third largest town in this Baltic country and in the middle of the card, one can see the water gates into the Baltic Sea.

From Wikipedia: KlaipÄ—da (German: Memel) is a city in Lithuania situated at the mouth of the Curonian Lagoon where it flows into the Baltic Sea. As Lithuania's only seaport, it has ferry terminal connections to Sweden and Germany. Somme of its older buildings have picturesque half-timbered construction, similar to that found in Germany, France, England, Denmark and southern Sweden.
