Postcard Travels with Roland Poland - Week 52 Mexico

Very sore and recovering from his trip to the vets, Roland Poland finally receives his mail - ALL the letters he wrote to Carmen have been returned unopened, in a bundle wrapped in brown string.  It is accompanied by a postcard from Carmen, who is in Mexico with her sister, Maria.

Here is the travel page we made for him.

She writes,

Bye Poland

It would never have worked.


The next thing our hero knows is when he is woken up by a comforting paw around his shoulders and gently shaking him, Malcolm asks "Are you alright?  You were sobbing in your sleep".
Roland Poland, very bemused says "Then all this was just a dream?"
"Let's go and find some breakfast says Malcolm and as the two trot down Botchergate, Roland Poland thinks that Carlisle has never looked so beautiful.

Thank you to Darcy at Art and Sole for organizing this most wonderful challenge.  I have 'grown' so much from the experience and thank you to all my visitors who have commented on this year long quest.


  1. Great card and page. Sorry our hero did not win his lady but Carlisle and Cumbria is a great place to be especially with friends. Great trip Janet, Roland's stories have been a blast.

  9. Hi Janet, thanks for the visit to my Li'l Redhead. I hope you will be adding to your blog soon. I tried to reply to the email yahoo sent me from you via the comment, but I get the noreply return address. I guess you are just trying to stay fairly warm up there in the far north. And catching up on your reading.
