GEOGRAPHIC PHILATELY | Covers & Postcards Worldwide

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

Iran (2015) alphabet



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!

Japan (2015) Mt. Fuji and flowers


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.

Thank you very much for this gorgeous cover!

Germany (2015) 50th Anniversary of the Germany-Israel Diplomatic Relations


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!

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!

Besides the well-known Christmas Island in Indian Ocean (Australia), there is also a place called Christmas Island in Nova Scotia, Canada. In fact, it is a minor part of Cape Breton and it is not a real island. However, it is famous for its beautiful pictorial postmark. And I am glad that Maryam managed this special Christmas cover for me :). Thank you very much!

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 :)
