Canary Islands (ES) (2013) Gran Canaria


ES_gran-canaria-cardA relative from my family sent me this cover and postcard from her vacation on the Gran Canaria in the Canary island archipelago. It geographically belongs to Africa. The archipelago belongs to Spain and it has no own stamps. Unfortunately, obtaining hand-stamp on Spanish post-offices is uneasy and happily this automated cancellation is very clear :).

Saint Helena (2013) flag

saint-helena_big saint-helenaStamped cover received with great help of the Philatelic bureau of Saint Helena. It travelled more than a year and it arrived on October 2013 (accidentally as a birthday present :)). Interesting pint is that the inside cover has postmark of January 8, but it took another 10 month to be delivered to my address :).

Filed under: T.A.A.F.

Hi, my name is Radim, born in a year of Dragon, interested in Botany and loving flags on stamps :). I am collecting nice covers and postcards thaít are addressed to me. And because I love travelling and it is impossible to see all the nice places of the world, I therefore wish to receive covers or/and postcards from as many countries as possible. Just to "touch" the distant places virtually :-).
I will deeply appreciate if you can help me with cover from any of worldwide country. I miss 10(11) countries (+ 2-3 distinct territories) in my collection, but I will appreciate any nice cover from any country sent to my address :)
