Can anyone translate the short message in German on this 1907, 1d postcard to Klosterstern, Hamburg, with view of ''Pine-Apple Plantation'' Tonga to Germany.

I am guessing it is a tourist type - "having a nice holiday'' type message?? :mrgreen:

Be a pretty rare beast I think, whatever it says! I put it into stock at $A70 (Stock 683JA)

Beste Grüße vom anderen Ende der Welt

Best greetings from the other end of the world
