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

91 miquelon

I am proud to present you the 100th card that I have received for my project (including also a letter and a package). I was really excited to find it in my mailbox!

Miquelon is the second island constituting the French overseas collectivity of Saint Pierre and Miquelon (I've already shown you a card from the tiny St Pierre). Well, it is actually three islands, Miquelon (Grand Miquelon), Langlade (Petite Miquelon) and Le Cap, but they are all connected by large sand dunes.

The name of the island has Basque origins and means simply "Michael", as many fishermen who lived first on the island had this name. Interesting is also the unofficial flag of the islands — the yellow ship is said to be the Grande Hermine, which brought the first Europeans to St Pierre in 1536, while three other fields represent the origins of most inhabitants — Basques, Bretons, and Normans.

What to do on the islands? Hike to one of the lighthouses, visit the church or museum in Miquelon town, see the steep cliffs of Langlade, or admire the sceneries and wildlife of the Cap!

Thank you Cedric for this beautiful card!

  1. Piękna jest ta twoja kolekcja 'wyspiarskich" pocztówek.
    Ja mam pocztówki z Wysp Zielonego Przylądka. Gdybyś chciała się wymienić to zajrzyj do zakładki 'swap'

    1. Dziękuję, także za propozycję,
      ale akurat dziś w mojej skrzynce też pojawiła się spora przesyłka z Zielonego Przylądka :)

  2. After you post your islands I go google more about them! Such a great break from the day to learn about something new! Of course this is where we are going for our honeymoon and I got all excited when it popped up today

    1. That's wonderful, can't wait to see your pictures! :)

  3. Nieoficjalna flaga bardzo ciekawa, podoba mi się ten żółty stateczek. Ooo już 100 pocztówka, gratuluję i życzę dalszego rozwoju wyspiarskiego projektu :)

    1. Dziękuję i zachęcam do dalszego zaglądania tu :)



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.
