Wonderful surprise sent by Florian. This cover was sent via German Antarctic Research station Neumayer III. This station is located on the approximately 200 metres thick Ekstrom Ice Shelf. Regular operation of the station began on 20 February 2009 and is expected to serve for the scientific research for next 25-30 years.

France (2014) Council of Europe

This cover was received more than a year ago. I decided to add this cover in order to have my geographical collection complete :).

Council-of-Europe

Council of Europe was founded in 1949 as an advisory international organisation promoting co-operation between European countries in the areas of legal standards, human rights, democratic development, the rule of law and cultural co-operation. Nowadays it has 47 member states and it is independent from the European Union. There is a post office in the Council of Europe building in Strasbourg with its own postmark. The organisation has also own special issues of French stamps inscribed with the “Conseil de l’Europe”, but all French stamps are valid at CoE post office.

This cover was received with kind help of the postmaster of the Council of Europe post office. Thank you very much!

Poland (2015) World Youth Day

PL_SDM_2015

Roman (as a CCCC circuit) sent me this interesting FDC commemorating the World Youth Day. Its history began with Pope John Paul II’s invitation to young people in 1984 to come to Rome for Palm Sunday. More than 300,000 turned out for the celebration. The following year – 1985 – coincided with the United Nations International Year of Youth. Then on December 20, the Pope announced the first official WYD meeting for 1986. The 2016 World Youth Day in Kraków will mark 30-years since first official World Youth Day gathering.

Thank you very much Roman!

Cape Verde (2015)

Although many collectors consider african archipelago of Cape Verde an “easy-to-get” country, it was difficult country for me. Couple of previous attempts failed, eventhough my cover was delivered to Philatelic bureau (and postage used was correct). Finally received as territory #254 because of help of Holger, who visited this country on January this year. Holger prepared two perfect covers and sent them on Jan 14 from Santa Maria (Sal).

When leaving Cape Verde, the registered cover was already one day delayed compared to regular cover (see obverse side of covers), arriving to Czechia 5 days after the regular cover. This is caused by different handling operations of regular and registered mails. Thank you very much Holger!

UK (2015) Talyllyn Railway Letter Service

UK_Talyllyn

 

Another surprise cover found in my mailbox in January 2015. Florian sent me special cover from the Wales, UK. It is special because it was carried by the Talyllyn Railway Letter Service, which can be recognised by special stamp with postmark and a special cachet (upper left corner). The Talyllyn Railway is a narrow-gauge preserved railway running from Tywyn to Nant Gwernol for a distance of ca. 11.7 km. Thank you very much, Florian!

Florian’s cover can be seen here.

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 :-).
.
MY WISHLIST - MISSING COUNTRIES
