GEOGRAPHIC PHILATELY | Covers & Postcards Worldwide

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

Norway (2014) Jan Mayen


It was pretty hard to get this cover. This attempt was my third trial, as previous covers addressed to Postmaster of the Jan Mayen island returned back to me as undelivered. Workers of the Philatelic bureau in Oslo wrote me in email that the Post Office on the Jan Mayen island is closed. Apparently, it was just misunderstanding and I have finally received this beautifully cancelled cover back to me :).

Jan Mayen is volcanic island in the European Arctics belonging to Norway. It forms administrative unit together with the Svalbard. It is very sparsely populated, only inhabitants are either military or scientific stuff. Despite its isolation there is a post office on Jan Mayen, which has its own pictorial postmark.

Svalbard (2013) World’s Northernmost Post Office

svalbaard-coverToday I received this cover from the Norwegian archipelago Svalbard (Spitsbergen). The interesting thing of this cover is that it was cancelled with the postmark of the post office in Ny-Alesund. This is the world’s northernmost permanent post-office. Many thanks to postmister in Ny-Alesund :).

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 :)
