Henry Ford Museum: Mustang #1

Henry Ford Museum - Ford Mustang

Mustang #1 from the Henry Ford Museum. How much must this be worth? $millions

Apparently it was sold by accident to a customer and then Ford went back and got it. Gee, I bet they had to stump up for it too!

Madagascar: Malagasy girl

I sent this card to my daughter back in 2003 during my last (and only) visit to Madagascar

Botswana: the new regiment

I certainly don't get too many cards from Botswana - and my travel pal, Philip Game, is the only one I know who's ever been there. And what a set of stamps!

New preference: Hotels and Resorts

Hi Folks, Yes I've added a new category to my postcard preferences - Hotels. I spend so much time in these places and especially enjoy the old classics with stories to tell. If you have some, let's swap.

Classic Japanese Postcards

Japan does paper so well. I could spend hours in the Japanese shops - and do!

Taiwan Kitsch

Our ship took an unexpected detour to Taiwan and I picked up some unusual postcards from the little gift shop at the Chiang Kai-shek Memorial Hall. You find the coolest cards in these places.

Hamburg Australien Dampfschiff Gesellschaft

The funny thing about about this card is that my postcard hero, Sabine, wonders: "not sure if you like it". (!) Sabine, it's brilliant.

Upper Suriname River

Another one out of thin air from my hard-wired-for-travel pal Tatyana. I met Tatyana aboard Aranui3 and she impressed me with her command of languages - and she suffered my German.
