Garden Route, South Africa
Ok, so a big reason I love this postcard is clearly because there are dolphins surfing waves on it (which is why it was chosen for me). Awesome. Also, I actually like the tattered look it has – suggests to me that it’s come from far away and had quite the journey (it did come to me from South Africa to Australia, after all).
So, the story behind this postcard is that it didn’t actually come from Garden Route – I believe my parents bought it in Port Elizabeth, east of Garden Route, which in itself is east of Cape Town.
My parents weren’t amazingly impressed with Port Elizabeth, so I looked into the Garden Route, the results much to my pleasure. It’s a scenic stretch of land in southeastern South Africa, with beautiful beaches on the coast and lakes and lagoons further inland. This sounds like my kind of place, and makes me think a little of the Great Ocean Road in Australia.
Hello, new place on my wish list.
