I really love this postcard because it's one of those "hard to get postcards from" places, also I had heard about this place before but I didn't knew anything about it so it gave me the chance to learn about a new place!

Guadeloupe, sometimes known as the Butterfly Island (French: I'ile Papillon), on account of the shape of two of its major islands, is a group of islands in the eastern Caribbean and is a French overseas department. It is located southeast of Puerto Rico. Rum production is a very integral part of Guadeloupe's economy.

Guadeloupe is an archipelago of nine inhabited islands: 
  • Basse Terre: green and lush vegetation, mountainous with a sulphuric volcano.
  • Grande Terre: flat and dry with a lot of beaches, some of them very touristic.
  • Marie Galante: the biggest island out of mainland Guadeloupe.
  • Les Saintes (2): composed of Terre de Haut and Terre de Bas, one of the most beautiful bays.
  • La Désirade: Natural and relatively untouched.
  • Petite Terre: uninhabited and untamed.
  • Saint Martin: the French part of Saint Martin adjacent to Sint Maarten, the Dutch part.
  • Saint-Barthélemy: the jet set island.
Merci beaucoup Olga!
