A little selection

Some of these are from as far back as August 2013.

757 from Alina from Dneprodzerzhins'k in the Ukraine (UA-702038).  (Try pronouncing Dneprodzerzhins'k after a drink or two!)

And the stamp has this super inkwell on it.

770 A mail carrier in Puerto Rico from Matt in the USA (US-2347235).  Where a card is received as a result of postcrossing I have included its i/d number so that anyone who wants to ‘Favourite’ it can do so.

775 – From my friend Mish in Belarus to whet your appetite.  It reminded her of one of her favourite childhood treats – bread with butter mixed with garlic and salt.  “Yummy!”

Aren’t these fantastic stamps?

776 – Kerilesen from Germany sent me this picture of a motor post vehicle from Berlin around 1900 (DE-2381999).

778 – Also from Germany came this card from Conni (DE-2377477).  Entitled ‘Read’, the photo was taken by Raffaele Celentano.

789 – Simona sent me this from Lithuania’s first ever postcrossers meet-up.  It was signed by all those who attended (LT-313498). 

792 – A Lithuanian postbox – also from Simona.


  1. I think drinking isn't necessary to have some difficulties in the pronunciation of "Dneprodzerzhins'k"!

  2. I especially like the one titled, Read. I also think it's very cool to receive a postcard signed by all the attendees from a postcrossing meet-up.

  3. Great selection here! It's hard to pick a favorite. Each postcard has its own special charm ... but I guess since my stomach is starting to crave for lunch I'm specifically drawn into the bright colors of that card from your friend Mish in Belarus.

    This is my first comment in your blog for 2014, the year is still young so let me wish you and your family a happy, healthy, and prosperous new year!

    1. Thanks Maria and a Happy New Year to you and yours. And, indeed, to all my blog readers.


Welcome. I love it when visitors comment - even if it's only to say "Hi, I've been here!"
