Covers and postcards sent to my address from different countries of the world.

Spain / Malta (2013) missent cover without Spanish postmark


My relative spent a holiday on Gran Canaria, Canary Islands, Spain. She sent me two covers with printed logo of Gran Canaria and Canary Islands. The latter one was received earlier in 2013. This second cover was delayed, because it was missent to Malta. It hasn’t received any postmark in Spain and it apparently arrived to Malta with clean Spanish stamp. The Maltese clerk thus covered the Spanish stamp with sticker and I finally received “blank” cover “without” stamp from Spain but with Maltese postmark :). It is quite a curiosity :).

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 :).

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 :)
