Finally, a card from Great Britain!
It is the largest island in Europe, and the largest of the British Isles. Its biggest neighbour is Ireland, but there are also over 1,000 smaller islands surrounding it. If you would like to know more about at least some of them, be sure to visit the blog "A lifetime of islands". Its owner has a (fantastic) goal to visit as many of the British Isles as possible, and there are already over 270 posts describing different tiny islands around Britain!
This beautiful map was a surprise from John, and I couldn't ask for a better first card from Great Britain! It is difficult to write only a few sentences about such big and diverse place, so a map showing all the most popular attractions of each region is a nice "introduction". Hopefully there will be more British cards in my project, telling us a bit more about life in different corners of this big island.
Thank you so much John!

* I am also a big fan of British stamps, and I really love these John used here on the card. The old pillar and wall boxes are fascinating, soon I will show you one more special mailbox from the British Isles!
