Hello, my name is Anna. This blog is about all the beautiful islands around the world.

89 vlieland

Vlieland is one of the West Frisian Islands, located in the Wadden Sea. It is the second island from the west, just next to Texel, that we've already seen here.

It is a small island, 36.13 km2, with only about 1100 inhabitants. Tourists are not allowed to bring cars there, everyone uses bicycles instead, and there is only one bus running from the ferry terminal to the village.

Vlieland's landscape consists mostly of dunes, there is so much sand that it's sometimes referred to as the 'Sahara of the north'. If you'd like to learn more about the island, visit this website.

Big thanks to Lars, who sent me this card after visiting Vlieland !

My big dream is to receive postcards sent from every island in the world (at least those that have a postbox). If you would like to help me, please contact me at letters.from.islands@gmail.com.
