postcard perfect: lighthouse at lake superior, michigan

Pin It

This is a beautiful postcard of a lighthouse located at a cliff near the shoreline of Lake Superior, in Michigan.

Here’s what Mr. Wiki has to say about this astounding work of nature:

Lake Superior (Lac Supérieur in French) is the largest of the five Great Lakes of North America. It is bounded by Ontario + Minnesota {north}, and by Wisconsin and Michigan {to the south}. It is considered the largest freshwater lake in the world by surface area + is the world’s third-largest freshwater lake by volume.

I particularly like this very poignant rendering of the lighthouse + simply adore the beautiful rocks at the shoreline. Thanks, Tera + Gibson, for sending me this wonderful card^_^

My Lakbayan grade is D!

How much of the Philippines have you visited? Find out at Lakbayan!

I have not really seen most of the Philippines, so I was not surprise to find out that I got a grade of D 🙁 It is quite sad + ironic really, but I have really yet to see a lot of the country + visit as much landmarks + beautiful tourist spots + destinations. Alas, money is of the essence + in the mean time, I am not really equipped to embark on a tour or a trip to anywhere in the country. But i vow to see as much of it as I can in this lifetime.

+ in the mean time, I will get myself acquainted with the help of my growing postcard collection 🙂

Care to know what your Lakbayan grade will be? Do share 🙂

This is a multi-view of London {one of my most favorite places on earth, which I hope to visit in this lifetime :)}, which features some of the most famous landmarks in the city: the Big Ben, the Tower Bridge, the world-famous red double-decker bus + the Palace of Westminster.

According to Mr. Wiki, London is United Kingdom‘s largest metropolitan area. It is one of the 2 world’s largest financial center + is home to the busiest airport in the world, the London Heathrow + world’s oldest underground railway network, the London Underground. London boasts of 4 World Heritage sites, namely, Kew Gardens, Westminster Abbey, Tower of London + the historic settlement of Greenwich wherein the Royal Conservatory marks the Prime Meridian or O degrees longitude.

Other world-famous sites to be found in London include St. Paul’s Cathedral, Wembley Stadium, Trafalgar Square, Buckingham Palace + Piccadilly Circus.
