#97 - Altit and Baltit Fort

Altit Fort, Hunza
Altit Fort is an ancient fort above Karimabad in the Hunza valley in Gilgit Baltistan, Pakistan. It was originally home to the hereditary rulers of the Hunza state who carried the title Mir, although they moved to the somewhat younger Baltit fort nearby three centuries later. Altit Fort and in particular the Shikari tower is around 1100 years old, which makes it the oldest monument in the Gilgit–Baltistan.
Baltit Fort, Hunza
Baltit Fort is an ancient fort in the Hunza valley in Gilgit-Baltistan, Pakistan. Founded in the 1st CE, since 2004, it has been on the UNESCO World Heritage Tentative list.

Both are located in Hunza. Hunza is a mountainous valley in the Gilgit–Baltistan region of Pakistan.

#95 - Multiview Postcard from the Netherlands

This is one of my favourite postcards! This one comes from the Netherlands (also known as Holland). It's the main constituent country of the Kingdom of the Netherlands, located in Western Europe, near Belgium, UK, and Germany. The capital city is Amsterdam, and I have many friends from this town.
That's why I put Netherlands in 3rd place in my list about "countries-must-be-visited", after South Korea, and Singapore.
Another reason about why I want to travelling to Netherlands is that the Netherlands have special history connection with my country, Indonesia.
How about you? Would you like to go to Netherlands?

#90 - King and Queen of Netherlands

The Monarchy of the Netherlands is constitutional and as such, the role and position of the monarch are defined and limited by the constitution of the Netherlands. Consequently a fairly large portion of the Dutch constitution is devoted to the monarch; roughly a third of the constitution describes the succession, mechanisms of accession and abdication to the throne, the roles and responsibilities of the monarch and the formalities of communication between the States-General of the Netherlands and the monarch in the creation of laws.

The constitution refers to the monarch of the Kingdom of the Netherlands as "The King", though the monarch may be a king as well as a queen.

The Kingdom of the Netherlands has been an independent monarchy since 16 March 1815, but has been hereditarily "governed" by members of the House of Orange-Nassau since 1559, when Philip II of Spain appointed William of Orange as stadtholder. William became the leader of the Dutch Revolt and the independent Dutch Republic. As stadtholder, he was followed by several of his descendants, and during the 18th century, the function of stadtholder developed into a hereditary head of state of the thus "crowned" Dutch Republic. The last stadtholder, William V, was succeeded by his son, William I, who became the first king.

In Portlad, most people bicycle or take the MAX (the public lighrail) to work or school. It rains quite a lot here too, though no one ever uses an umbrella. You can tell who is a local by whether they're carrying a brolly or not.

Looking forward to your card.
Take care,
