A new country for me both for travels and postcards, so I sent one to mum. As usual :)
I've also included some I've sent myself from significant or interesting locations or just bought for fun. All my postcards are uploaded to my Flickr.
You'll see I also enjoy fancy stamps too. Want to trade? Read on.

As the tribulations of the COVID crisis continue, those of us stuck at home might find themselves clearing out the dark, dusty recesses of the cupboard or writing desk.
All too often those mysterious nooks and crannies reveal long-lost treasures. Long dried-out ballpoint pens stolen during a forgotten hotel stay, boarding passes from defunct airlines or postcards from friends and family who haven't had a Christmas card since before the fall of the Berlin Wall.
For your amusement, I've found a few cards that remind me of times gone by. Perhaps even one from you.
|Sent home to my daughter from Soweto. 1999.|
|from mum in Hong Kong 1995|
These cards procured from visits to museum gift shops, sent from generous pals and even from junk shops. Makes me recall my time making scores of Airfix plastic model kits in my childhood and cementing my lifelong interest in aviation. Here's the full album.

This fabulous card received from my colleague Angela while on assignment in Macedonia. Another country I have only visited vicariously via my well-travelled friends.The Lake Ohrid region, a mixed World Heritage property covering c. 94,729 ha, was first inscribed for its nature conservation values in 1979 and for its cultural heritage values a year later.
