Amongst my prized possessions are letters and post cards sent from various places my parents travelled during summer holidays. Here are some from 1970. As a kid in Panama, finding these in the mail made my child's heart race. I did not know it at the time, but my parents planned to take me with them and did so in 1973. I have more post cards and will present them in future posts.
As a Third Culture Kid (A term I will explain fully in a later post as Blogger is giving me fits) I was always eager to explore new places, cultures and languages, something I retain in adulthood.
As a teen, I saw parts of the EU, Central and South America, Mexico and bits of the U.S. Ironically, though a citizen of the United States by birth, I've always felt more comfortable abroad than in the States.
The top card is of course the Eiffel Tower in Paris, France and the bottom is St. Edward's Crown, originally made for Charles II and used in coronations since. This last is both a nod to history and blogger Lettuce-eating's recent comments concerning the Royals.
Until Next Time...
