LV_EU-presidency_2015

Uldis, member of the LCC, sent me another 5 great covers recently. 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.

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.

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 :)
