The East coast of Barbados

I received my first postcard from Barbados, an island country in the Lesser Antilles, in the Caribbean region of North America. It is 34 kilometers in length and up to 23 km in width, covering an area of 432 km2. It is situated in the western area of the North Atlantic and 100 km east of the Windward Islands and the Caribbean Sea; therein, it is about 168 km east of the islands of Saint Vincent and the Grenadines and 400 km north-east of Trinidad and Tobago. Barbados is outside the principal Atlantic hurricane belt. Its capital and largest city is Bridgetown.

First stamp is Vanden Plas Princess Limousine, from set Vintage cars, issued 07.11.2000. Other two stamps are Harrison's Cave and Villa Nova, from set Pride of Barbados, issued on 22.05.2000.

Thank you Wolfgang!
