IR_cover

 

This rare item was sent by Wolfgang, who recently visited this country. He wrote me that sending covers from Iran was quite challenging because of limited availability of stamps and “open” postage rates. Thank you very much, Wolfgang, for your effort and sending this great cover!

Tomoko sent me this superb cover, which looks even better in real than scanned here on the blog :). This perfect cover was made by using the newly issued stamps from the series “National Afforestation Campaign” (issued on May 15, 2015) and newly issued definitive stamps (3-yen Definitive Stamp; issued on Feb 2, 2015). Stamp in right corner depicts the Chocolate Lily (Fritillaria camschatcensis), stamp in left corner shows the Japanese Zelkova (Zelkova serrata). Cover was posted from the Fujiyoshida city that lies at foothill of the famous Mt. Fuji and which is commemorated by special postmarks.

I have chosen to present this one; the right-corner stamp commemorates the Latvian Presidency of the Council of the European Union.  The presidency of the Council of the European Union (EU) rotates among the EU Member States every six months. The EU Council is an essential decision maker which together with the European Parliament (EP) adopts legislation and coordinates EU policies.

DE_2015_DE-IL-diplomatics

Britta sent me cover with stamp and special postmark commemorating the 50th Anniversary of Diplomatic relations between Germany and Israel. At first, Israel refused to establish relations with Germany due to the Hitler regime’s genocide during the Holocaust. However, relations gradually thawed as Germany offered to pay reparations in 1952, and diplomatic relations were officially established in 1965.

Thank you very much for the cover!

T.A.A.F. (2015) Scattered Islands

Scattered islands in the Indian Ocean (Îles Éparses de l’océan Indien) is French Territory near Madagascar. On four out of five islands is post office and it challenges collectors to receive mail from all 4 islands. My first cover from the Scattered islands was received in 2012 from the Tromelin island. Later that year, I received cover from the Juan de Nova island.

And recently, I received the two missing islands:

Europa island is tropical atoll in the Mozambique Channel and it is the southernmost island among Scattered islands. The Europa island is uninhabited, but has a weather station, is visited by scientists and thus has temporary post office.

TAAF_Ile-Euopa_2015This cover was prepared by me and sent for cancellation to Ile Europa Postmaster.


 

Glorioso islands (Îles Glorieuses) are a group of islands and rocks in the northern Mozambique channel. The archipelago consists of two islands, Grande Glorieuse and Île du Lys, as well as eight rock islets (Roches Vertes): Wreck Rock, South Rock and Verte Rocks and three others that are unnamed.

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!

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 :)
