UK - London

I received this wonderful multiview in the World Languages RR, written in Polish :) I really love it, because it's so colorful and it has... *I'm counting*... 30 pictures :) The extreme multiview cards are always on my wishlist, but having received some I can say that making a good multiview card with a lot of pictures must be difficult. A card with 30 pictures must have a good contrast, the pictures must be different (day and night views, showing different types of buildings, people, landscapes). Otherwise, it's nearly impossible to notice all the pictures and even to count them, because they seem to be too similar. Of course, I'm not a designer and I don't know, how do the professionals make postcards, but there's something about this one, which makes me call it a perfect multiview.



I've already posted some cards from London on my blog, so I'm not going to copy any info from Wikipedia :) So I'll just tell you that I regret not visiting the London Eye. It's not my fault, I've been to London just once and it was a school trip (Have I already told you that I've always hated school trips and any organised trips?) but still I think the view from London Eye must be great, even though it's moving so slowly :)

so that makes two of us...ive been to London as well, but didnt visit London Eye...to be honest, i wasnt even aware about it, since nobody took us there...and back in 1998 it wasnt really that possible here to just google information ahead about the place you are going to and see whats worth visiting and what not...ah, if only i could go again...

btw, that puzzle-stamp is really cool....

London!! I like London! I've been there only once but I want to go back to London. Didn't try the London eye because that was really expensive and I decided to do some other things! I miss my favorite palace :( Kensington Palace! Such a nice place! The one where Lady Di lifes :)

I don't know, what's the price of London Eye, but sometimes, if you know you're not going to come back to this place soon, it's worh paying a bit more to see something that you'd remember for a long time :)

Ana, I also like stamps that have unusual shapes :) I've seen some triangular ones in Poland last year, but other countries (like Finland) seem to have stamps in a larger variety of shapes.
