On Our Travels With Darcy's Postcard Challenge - Portugal
I have followed the explorer nautical theme for Portugal. One of the world's most famous explorers is the Portuguese Vasco De Gama. In 1498 he became the first European to reach India by sea. In so doing he paved the way for the Portuguese Colonial Empire in Asia.
My postcard is on watercolour paper with his image from Wikipedia and a ship stamp from Artemio. The background map stamp is from Impression Obsession.
My page shows a map of Vasco De Gama's route as the pocket and pictures of the flag, Porto and the famous Discoveries monument in Lisbon made to celebrate Portugal's famous explorers.
Do take a look at the talented work of others on this journey here.
