GEOGRAPHIC PHILATELY | Covers & Postcards Worldwide

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

Cook islands (2015) nature

 

 

Cook-islands

This cover was received already back in September, but it represents new country for my collection (#276), the only single new country received in past 6 months. I thus present it here with the delay. This cover was kindly arranged by Jinesh Joseph from India. Thank you very much!

Pitcairn Islands (2015)

Pitcairn

Another example of excellent work done by the Philatelic bureau. The interesting issue of the Philatelic bureau of the Pitcairn Islands is that it is located in Wellington, New Zealand. Therefore, this cover never touched the Pitcairn Islands grounds, but was dispatched from the New Zealand. However, it doesn’t change the fact that the postmark is gorgeous :).

Thank you very much!

Vanuatu (2015)

I prepared couple of covers for my friends as well as members of the LCC (which were sent as circuits), and sent them to the Vanuatu Philatelic bureau with request for cancellation. The Postmaster did really a great job. All my three covers returned back perfectly cancelled. I also like the unusual Airmail label of the Vanuatu Post.

Thank you very much!

Norfolk Island (2015) Landscape

Norfolk_2015

 

Norfolk Island is small island in South Pacific Ocean located between Australia, New Zealand and New Caledonia. It is part of the Commonwealth of Australia, but it has a large degree of self-governance. From the biological point of view, it is famous for its distinct conifer species that is depicted on the Norfolk flag and which is widely popular in Europe, i.e. Araucaria heterophylla. This species can be seen on some of stamps on cover too.

This cover was kindly prepared and sent by the Postmaster of the Norfolk Island Philatelic bureau. Thank you very much!

I have already written repeatedly that I like when philatelic bureaux send the orders in real posted covers. The Philatelic bureau of Pitcairn islands is another such a great example. Thank you very much!

Christmas 2013

It is hard to believe, but Czech Post was not issuing any Christmas stamp in 2013. We have stamps commemorating unknown or even controversial persons or events, but missing Easter and Christmas. Weird :). I hope that Czech Post will do better in 2014 :).

Anyway, I am very thankful to all of you who sent me Christmas 2013 cover, although I was not able to send the same in return. Thank you!

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
I will deeply appreciate if you can help me with cover from any of worldwide country. I miss 12 countries (18 distinct territories) in my collection, but I will appreciate any nice cover from any country sent to my address :)
