Rostock, Germany

I decided to start the "new" blog by showing my first two official postcrossing cards (and only ones so far....i dont like the ratio of 7 sent, 2 received and 1 travelling...but they say it evens out with time...though i still feel confused about some ways of the functioning of the whole system, but ok...thats not the issue now)

I got TWO first cards, (received them last Friday, 16th of May) so i cant say 'hey, this is my first official card'...I consider them both as first :)

One of them is a multi view of Rostock, which is my first card from this town, so its great :)


The name Rostock comes from Polabian "Roz toc", which literally means "to flow apart".
It is the largest city in the north German state Mecklenburg-Vorpommern, and is located on the Warnow river. The city was founded in 1160 and has about 250.000 inhabitants. It lies directly on the coast of the Baltic Sea.

Some pretty designs alright. Doing the painting yourselves is more fun but a good place for ideas for more design is this site of, that I use to help with my wall decorations.
You can browse for a painting like this The tree, by 20th century Czech artist, Frantisek Kupka, for example, , that can be ordered on line and delivered to you.
