Bonjour! This week’s carte postale features the city of Cannes, located in the South of France. My cousin went on a cruise in 2010 and she sent me this postcard during a port call in Cannes.

The postcard features the world famous boulevard called La Croisette that’s lined with palm trees, luxury shops, restaurants, and grand hotels.

The circular building is the Palais des Festivals et des Congrès de Cannes, which is the venue for the Cannes Film Festival (Festival de Cannes).

American director, screenwriter, and actor, Spike Lee will be the President of the Jury for the 74th edition of Festival de Cannes, which will be held July 6 – 17, 2021.

Over the years, I have accumulated about two hundred postcards from around the world, which I’ve either purchased from my local antique shops or received from thoughtful jet-setting family and friends who know I collect them. When I travel, I also like to send myself a carte postale just for fun!

I hope these postcards will make you want to revisit a favorite vacation spot or to embark on a journey to the destination of your dreams (when it’s safe to do so again, of course!)

And if you’ve been to the destination featured, tell me about your experience there – I’d love to hear from you.

Until the next Wednesday Postcard, stay well!
