Q is for Queen's Islet Palace, Sweden

While researching for my Sweden trip, I was treated to a pleasant surprise at the Visit Sweden website. The photos on the page could be sent over as an e-postcard! Kudos to technology, even postcard delivery now has been automated. So I tried and sent myself one.

For letter "Q" --

According to Uncle Wiki, "Drottningholm" in the name Drottningholm Palace literally means "Queen's Islet". The palace is listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site. I am hoping for nice weather this coming weekend so I could take at least a nice view of this palace from Gamla Stan. It would be a bit far from me if I travel all the way to Lovon where it is located. So a panoramic view from a nearby island would be enough I think. :)



  1. Hi Maria - well done on the e-postcard .. with postal services in South Africa and Australia (the ones I know about) being up the shute ... the e-way seems a great idea .. and you sent yourself one.

    Love the Queen's Islet Palace and hope the weather holds for our view from afar next weekend .. cheers Hilary

  2. What a stunning building and photo.

  3. That reflection is amazing. I've never been to Sweden - Denmark is the nearest I've got.

  4. A magnificent postcard. I'd be proud to take a photo like that withe the reflection in the water.

  5. I would love to see this place. Great idea to let folks send e-postcards!

  6. Wow, that is so very beautiful. Sweden is one of my loveliest memorable country, and was able to heal a past life experience!
