GEOGRAPHIC PHILATELY | Covers & Postcards Worldwide

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

South Sudan & North Korea (2013)

This post shows my the most unusual mail ever received so far. Leo was working in South Sudan and he managed to send me a cover (addressed to me). Unfortunately, it never arrived to my address. The most probable reason (as I was told) was the fact that South Sudanese Post didn’t arrange any contract with airlines and mail didn’t left Juba for several months of 2012.

However, Leo sent me locally posted cover, sent from Juba to address in Juba. Although this cover is not sent to my address, it is very valuable because it shows really postally used stamps of newly formed country.


The very interesting point is that the South Sudanese cover was sent to me from North Korea. I therefore received real regular cover from North Korea, i.e. not the cover arranged by Philatelic bureau. It is rather difficult to get mail like that.


I am amazed by the combination of two countries, which both belong to top 10 hardest-to-get countries of the world :).

Many many thanks goes to Leo!

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 :)
