Beach view in Zeeland
15 Apr, 2014 | From Yvonne of Netherlands
This is the longest written-and-stamped postcard I have received to date. It showcases a spectacular beach view from Holland. Yvonne shared that this is the most beautiful part of Holland. It is situated in the very south-west, and is named Zeeland. For Yvonne, to live here is like always having a holiday: you are close the beach, exciting dunes, amazing nature, and the sea always has cute seals.
Zeeland is the westernmost province of the Netherlands. The province, located in the south-west of the country, consists of a number of islands (hence its name, meaning "sea-land") and a strip bordering Belgium. The Pacific nation of New Zealand is named after Zeeland.
