A Postcard A Day - Tuesday 29 May 2018 - T for...

Good morning lovely peeps. It's Tuesday again and I'm heading for the T-Party held at Elizabeth and Bluebeard's. Please join us with anything drink related. Any beverage will do. 

This was me on Saturday. We are on a month-long road trip and are expected to do more than 5000km. We left on Sunday morning, so I was a bit frazzled on Saturday, trying to get everything ready.

Lets start with my postcards. The theme here is 1970s. Both cards are from that era. The first one is Tokyo in 1971. It is called Sentimental Journey by photographer Nobuyoshi Araki. (Collection of Tokyo Photographic Art Museum)

Here are the stamps. It's a shame that I can't read what it says on the stamp. I like to know what they 
are all about.

This second card is from 1971 too, but it is from Portugal. It is an elderly spinster. No, not an unmarried woman but a woman who spins. In this case she is a spinner of Perre linen from Minho (in the north of Portugal)

And this is the stamp. It has delicious looking sweet rolls on it. They are called pastel de Tentúgal. (Tentúgal is a city near Coimbra) They are made of thin filo pastry and filled with a custard made with egg yolks. Very yummy!

As I am writing this, we are in France. We left Spain early on Monday morning and spent the
 night in northern Spain near the Pyrenees mountains, in a place called Huesca. We found a hotel and went out for a drink and a tapa. (Enough for me by ways of supper. )
The tapas rolled by like they do in some sushi bars and you just take what you fancy.
Here I wanted to put the photo,but I don’t know how to do that. I am doing this on my iPad and the photos are taken with this device, so I have published them on Facebook and here is the link. Is anyone iPad savvy? Sorry about that. 
I’ll post this before I do anymore damage and lose the lot.
Happy t-day all,


  1. Love the postcards but even more I love the stamps!! Lucky you to be travelling and seeing so man beautiful sights. From DNA history I'm getting lately it looks like family is from Basque /French region in addition to my Irish/Celtic roots:) I don't have an Ipad so best of luck with it. Enjoy your travels and happy T day!

  2. The postcards are pretty funny! I hope you figure out posting from the iPad. I can't say I know how to do that. I can't imagine it is difficult but it's probably some little technique. I hope you are having a great journey and I am going to head over to facebook to see your tapas go round. Happy T day. Hugs-Erika

  3. First, I am definitely batting zero here. First, I don't own an iPad or any device other than my desktop computer. Second, I'm not on Facebook, so I can't even see the tapas. AS I suspected, when I clicked on the link, I had to log in before I could continue, so I'll appreciate that you shared the photo with those who have FB accounts.

    Have fun in France, enjoy your time away, and hopefully find someone who can help with your iPad.

    Thanks for sharing your postcards and tapas with us for T this Tuesday, dear Lisca. And like Linda, I loved the frazzled dog.

  4. Oh Lisca, I am SO sorry. I just read your comment about linking you, and it is 6:30 pm my time. I fear everyone has left the party by now. I will do better next week, I promise.
