Admittedly, I was a little stuck for today's Blog Link-up Party. It is"free topic" day and I just wasn't sure what I should show. One person chose Halloween and I thought that it might be a cool idea since Halloween is in a few days. I hope they don't mind that I am doing scary, Halloween themed things too.
The first card was given to me by a friend who lives in Oita. We live in opposite ends of the country and could only meet occasionally. Every time we met, she forgot to bring me the cards! Eventually, I think she just mailed them to me.
This card below represents one of the "Hells of Beppu". Beppu has eight geothermal pools, which are not used for bathing, they are tourist attractions. I have never been to Beppu yet, but since it has a cool but scary-looking pool like one the below, it is on my wish list! The Wikipedia article really needs some work, but it makes more sense (slightly) than the explanation on the Gotochi Card site.
Below I have posted the Mailbox card for Halloween for 2014 and 2016. I'm not sure if I bought 2015! These are rather cute cards. I sent one of the 2016 cards for Postcrossing and it was greatly appreciated.
Please do have a look at the other members of the Blog Link Up Party and see what they did with their free topic!
