Monte Carlo Grand Prix

A relatively unusual card from Monte Carlo where, to my way of thinking, many of the postcards leave something to be desired.  The vintage ones are much more attractive and less glitzy.  This one was sent by my son after many threats of excommunication.  The Grand Prix doesn't interest me in the least but I did want a card.

  1. Many, many years ago, I was in Monte Carlo with my boss and another colleague from work. Luckily, we were there a few days BEFORE the Grand Prix so I was able to get reasonable rates at the Monte Carlo Beach Resort. I love Monte Carlo and its beautiful spot above the Mediterranean. I have always been a fan of Grace Kelly and I feel so close to her there!

  2. "A son is a son until he takes a wife.
    A daughter is a daughter the rest of her life."

    My son rarely communicates, the proverb must be true!

    Wish I had the money to enjoy a Monte Carlo lifetyle.

  3. I think whoever decided Monte Carlo was an appropriate place to stage a Grand Prix must have been insane!

  4. even more insane...there are serious plans to stage a future grand prix race in rome!

  5. Monte Carlo is so expensive it's nice to have a card showing the route of the race and the many sites along the way!

  6. I received this exact same card not so long ago and was more than thrilled since I have a soft spot towards F1, and im always delighted when i receive a postcard which is F1 related even though i havent been following it this year, i still love F1 cards....having one written and stamped from Monaco is a real treasure :)

  7. Whoa !! Cool !!
    I guess my husband will happy if he receive one :0


Welcome to my postcard collection! I love hearing what you think of the cards - but spam WILL be deleted.
