Week 2

Another THREE postcards went out this week: An Aboriginal art postcard to China (AU-320774), a Leichardt Australia-Germany joint issue First Day of Issue card to France (AU-320775), and a Farming Australia First Day of Issue card to Belarus (AU-320776).

// incoming:

A staggering FIVE postcards arrive in my letterbox this week, all featuring some of my favourite things: Vampires (from Russia: RU-2147391), handmade (from Malaysia: MY-175829), Jane Austen (from USA: US-2493166), gelato (from Italy: IT-247678), and caravans (from Germany: DE-2618293).
My favourite message for the week came from Megan in the USA, who wrote:
"Greetings from the USA! My name is Megan, I am 39 years old, and I live with my husband in Saint Louis, Missouri. I read your profile with such a smile on my face, because we have many similar loves - Jane Austen, Joss Whedon, baking, photography, museums...I just took a quick look at your blog and I will surely be back. Your cottage is beautiful! Happy Postcrossing!"
Postcrossing postcards received to date: 8

  1. Oh, I love the Ludwig Leichhardt stamp! I rarely see the stamps the other countries issue for the joint issue stamps. I somehow really do like this one.
    Take care!

    1. I actually received the Leichardt stamp from Germany this week! I couldn't quite believe it, because I rarely see the other joint issue stamp too. You probably never see ours because it's a 60c stamp and therefore only good for domestic mail.

    2. Oh lucky you!
      Over here all the joint issues are made for international mail, which I think is a good idea. I recently also got a postcard with a joint issue stamp from France, so they also sometimes use them for international mail values.
      I hope you're doing well!
