Theme Thursday - Split

Sorry for the lack of posts over the past week but I've been away sunning, sailing, water skiing and windsurfing  with the family in Greece for the past week. It was a bit of a shock returning to the British weather today. Almost feel like booking a flight straight back out there again. I'll ease myself gently back into blogging with my contribution to this week's Theme Thursday, split. I had thought of sharing a multiview postcard as, an admittedly poor attempt on the theme, but then I came across this vintage postcard, which is actually split horizontally by the name of the village. I won't transpose it for you in the text as I'm bound to copy it down wrong, but you can read it below. It's normally abbreviated simply to Llanfairpwll, and, situated on the island of Anglesey in North Wales, boasts the longest village name in Europe.

Llanfairpwll station and the Two Bridges

As usual, 100's more vintage postcards on my web site

  3. Oh, I know that village, by the name :-)
    Welcome back, hug from someone who misses holidays too ;-)
    But please, say Ciao to your lovely country for me too. I love Italy, but I also miss England and those green fields and those woods and those roofs :-)

  4. I wouldn't even know where to begin in trying to pronounce it much less spell it ... I am always delighted how to manage to find the perfect card for each prompt!! Delightful!
