This next card has travelled from one of the most remote islands in the world - Saint Helena.
You might know it as the place of Napoleon's exile, Saint Helena is indeed a difficult place to escape from. It is located in the South Atlantic Ocean, more than 2,000 kilometres from the nearest landmass. Until recently, th only way you could get there was by ship, RMS Saint Helena, which runs between St Helena and Cape Town, also visiting Ascension Island. The voyage takes 5 days. However, a couple of years ago British government decided to build an airport on the island, and the first aircraft landed there in 2015.
Jessi, who sent this card wrote that "it shows the Flagstaff Hill and the Barn. The barn is the flat top hill. A man used to live there back in the day. If you go out to his cave today you will see where he used to sleep and all the equipment he used." Thank you so much Jessi for adding this fascinating island to my project!
