Beautiful and kind Norway

Kjerag Mountain | Kjeragbolten - Lysefjorden

Ramberg, Lofoten

12 Dec, 2013 | From Erl of Norway

Erl sent me these postcards before, but I really don't mind. I don't mind duplicates at all :) As they always say, it's the thought that counts. And the message written at the back is different anyway. The message is more important than the design :)

And I have to add, Erl uses such beautiful Norweigian stamps. I got a lot of Edvard Munch stamps from him. He is Norwegian painter and printmaker whose intensely evocative treatment of psychological themes built upon some of the main tenets of late 19th-century Symbolism and greatly influenced German Expressionism in the early 20th century. One of his most well-known works is "The Scream" of 1893.

In these postcards, Erl wrote about his job of being a language teachers. He shared that he love his job and that he gets to meet a lot of interesting people. He also wrote that 10 of his 130 students are Filipino.

He also wrote about his concerns about the aftermath of the super-typhoon Yolanda/Haiyan in our country. He extended his prayers, and shared that fund-raising events were held in their country to help the Yolanda victims. Thanks, Norway! :)
