Another Postcard from the United States of America

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.

Quite the curious thing has happened on Postcrossing. It looks likely that I have now received two postcards from the same person! Even stranger, now that I have received this card, my previous card from this person seems to have been removed from my Postcrossing account. With 722310 members it does seem highly unlikely that anyone would be matched with the same member twice, so perhaps they never bothered to plan for this in their system. Have I unwittingly come across a bug in their system? Curious!

At any rate, thank you Maggi! Since I already have a postcard from the United States of America, this one is not included in my overall count to 195 cards.

It is always awesome when I receive a postcard from a new country, this time it is Portugal. The card shows an old tower situated on the river Tagus in Lison, dating back to a time when Portugal was still a monarchy. Thank you Ana! Postcard #30.

This postcard shows Minsk airport. I’ve never been one to really appreciate airport architecture but this seems pretty nice, a sort of retro futuristic look. The blue water and sky probably help make it look inviting! Thank you Andrew. I already have a postcard from Belarus, this one is not included in my overall count to 195 cards.

Since I usually only show the front of the postcards that I receive I thought it might be nice to show some of the stamps on the cards, as that is part of the fun of getting a new postcard! This only represents a small selection but it features some of the prettier or more interesting stamps.

Another Postcard from Russia

Russia continues to be the leading provider of my postcard collection, however with postcards as beautiful as this I am certainly not complaining! What stands out most to me on this card is not the front, as nice as that is, but the stamps on the back. This postcard has inspired me to write a blog post all about the various stamps that I have received since starting this hobby, so look out for that! Thank you Olga for the card and the ideas! Since I already have postcards from Russia, this one is not included in my overall count to 195 cards.
