Stamps Around the World

As I've been sending postcards and receiving them, I've had the privilege to see some great stamps from various countries, and even locally. @Inlemay suggested that I show the stamps I've received and I've attempted to do so. One of the postcards does have my address on it, but as that is going to be defunct in a couple weeks I didn't bother to obliterate it. I hope you enjoy the various stamps from around the world.

I remember when I was collecting stamps one of San Marino's industries was the production of attractive stamps as a way of raising revenue for the country. There are some lovely stamps around.

Yes there are. Ours seem so conventional, boring. I asked the clerk when I bought more stamps a couple days ago if there were any other kinds of International, he said only during the Christmas holidays. I'll need to stock up when I see them so I have them for more than just Christmas. He also said it was an interesting thought.

@just4him Unless there is a quid in it for someone, they don't bother with it I guess.

@JudyEv Most likely not. Our International stamps are round with a picture of the moon.

The stamps and the postcards are all very nice and I think it is good that you have something like that to keep you occupied.

That is one of the cool things about "snail mail." An exotic stamp from a faraway place and knowing the distance the mail has traveled.

The distance makes it fun. I think New Zealand is my farthest stamp.

I tried to have a penpal, but I didn't get a response from the person I sent a letter to. I love the postcards. Now I'm getting a lot of them and I love it just as much as I love sending them.

I'm also enjoying the postcards. It's fun to get them from all over the world. I'm still waiting on my first postcrossing postcard. I hope it gets here before my move. As soon as I get it and before I send out the next postcard I'll be updating my address.

@just4him you should possibly have received it by now. How long has it been travelling and from where? I've had few not reach their destinations, about 5 out of over 60. I always have my maximum number travelling.

@valmnz They said I would be on the top of the list once the card I sent reached its destination. She received it a couple weeks ago now. It took 17 days to get from here to Russia. I don't know where the one is coming from that is on its way to me.

You're probably right. That one was from @valmnz She put it on an envelope because the postcard she sent didn't make it to me but it did when she put it in the envelope. I've had no problem getting postcards since.

@Inlemay So am I, but I've gotten all the others that were sent and even got one in the mail today. A third one from the same person. I'm going to need to let her know if she's going to send me anymore totally unexpected yet thrilling postcards, for which she won't let me send her one, then I need to get her my new address.
