Postcard from the United Kingdom

There are currently 195 Countries recognised by the United Nations, and I hope to collect a postcard from each and every one of them. Getting a postcard from certain countries will be difficult I am sure, but I do like a challenge. I am doing this using my Interpals Profile and the Postcrossing website. I hope to have exchanges with lots of people and gain some insight into different cultures and backgrounds.

Its funny but it didn’t occur to me until recently that in my quest to get 195 postcards from every country in the world, I would also have to get one from my own country, the United Kingdom! My father sent me this postcard while he was on holiday in Stratford, England. Postcard #15.

Thank you Chris for this lovely postcard from France, it reminds me of my past holidays in the magical city of Paris, and makes me want to be sipping wine down by Pont Neuf again! Postcard #14.

This postcard was sent to me by my brother Stephen while he was on tour with Scottish Opera in Canada. Since I already have a postcard from Canada, this one is not included in my overall count to 195 cards.

Thank you Veronika for this postcard, the depiction here of Minsk looks so quaint and makes me want to visit it! Since I already have a postcard from Belarus, this one is not included in my overall count to 195 cards.

Thank you Eleonora for this interesting looking postcard! It shows war gardens in Rome with the Altare della Patria in the background. After a quick Google search I learned that the Altare della Patria was built in honour of Victor Emmanuel, the first king of a unified Italy. Since I already have a postcard from Italy, this one is not included in my overall count to 195 cards.

This is a very pretty postcard showing sky lanterns in Taiwan. Tayen describes people traditionally write their wishes on the lantern before letting them float off into the sky. This postcard also smashes the current record for longest distance travelled, previously held by the United States of America. The card has travelled an incredible 6037 miles! Postcard #13.
