Black Forest on my mind

What do you have in mind if I talk about black forest? A yummy cake? Chocolate boom in tongue? Creamy? What else? Hohohoo.. for now I won't write about it though I'm deeply in <3 with black forest cake  <3  \:D/

It seems like hundred years when I first knew about Schwarzwald. In English Schwarzwald means Black Forest. Hmm... it takes me to a very delicious cake when talking about black forest. Yes, Schwarzwälder Kirschtorte is Germany's dessert, which its original recipe uses Kirsch, a kind of cherry distillation. I only know about it by digging into some webs. 

But for now, we won't discuss about this yummy cake. I remember when in 2005 somebody said about beautiful Black Forest / Schwarzwald. I had no idea about this place at that time. Unfortunately, although been there in the country of Schwarzwald, I can't go there since so tight schedule and lack of money ;)  

Years of dreaming about Black Forest got the answer finally. Through a very warm chat with my postcard pals in Germany, we talked about so many things and I said to her that I really want to see picture of Black Forest. Not only googling's picture I mean. 

As a postcrosser, she offered me a very kind hearted option. She saw 2 postcards of Schwarzwald in Ebay. It was said the condition of the cards a little bit old and not updated pictures too. But I think it's fine. What do you expect from your friend? A friendship or a certain postcard? ;)  More than that, her concern on my dream for years about seeing Black Forest really touched my heart. Oh my dear, are you an angel? :*



I am so happy for these two beautiful postcards. Black Forest or Schwarzwald is located in Baden-Wurttemberg, southwestern Germany. It has many attractive destination there. Just ask google, you will find everything you want from this place.

Now I will ask you, my friend, do you know why it's called Black Forest /  Schwarzwald?

After googling I get some information about it. There are species of Pine Tree with dark grey and dark brown colour in that place. The sunshine hardly brokes through them. That's why it will look like a dark forest for us.  Black Forest, it's something beyond my imagination.

I already forgot the name of my colleagua when I met him in Hamburg. But thanks for him about Black Forest conversation. Just because of him I have this marvelous dream. I don't know when I can go back to his country again. Only miracle can make it happen then I can see Black Forest by my eyes.


Many thanks also for Birgit Muller, charming lady from Altena, who really cares about my dream. I can't say nothing more than thank you... thank you... Your postcards really make my day :*
