Lista Fyr, Norway

Fantastic card sent by Sissel....who says that Norway actually doesnt have that many lighthouses...hmm, pity...

The Lista lighthouse is 34 metres tall and was lit for the first time on the 10th of November 1836. There are 132 stairs leading to the top from where you can enjoy the fantastic view of the Lista peninsula and the sea.

This lighthouse is said to have a rich history....but google seems to be so stingy on information!
But well....you can enjoy the view at least :)


This is the EUROPA stamp issued in 2007 (there are two in the set) on the theme of Scouting. Now this Scouting theme is the one thats most impossible to be found in Macedonia...and im not sure whats happening with the latest issue on Forests....but for starters, I dont even have the date when these shall be released here....

Thank you again Sissel, for another splendid card!

There are a lot of lighthouses actually, but most of them are small and not spectacular...

O, I like lighthouses. Especcially the lighthouse at Katwijk aan Zee! But this one, is nice too.
