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.
I was thinking that there must be an interesting visual way of showing my progress, so I found a website called Map Chart. It is an amazing website that lets users generate all sorts of maps for educational and learning purposes.
The red sections in the map above show where I have recieved a postcard from. I am quite pleased with my progress however there is clearly a long way to go to 195 countries. I currently have 29 countries marked, very few from Africa or South America. I hope to change this soon!
