Postcard updates from May 2015- June 2015

I have been meaning to update this blog but had been busy, busy, busy.
Here are the most recent ones I have received.

1 –  PRAGUE

DSCN2652

I know this may be your quintessential scenic view of the city,  
but I’m in love with Prague despite its imperfection. ^0^

The two pointing spires is the famous Tyn Church located along the old town.

These wonderful stamps were my favorite.

2 – GERMANY

DSCN2538

I have been receiving quite a handful of this Schloss Ludwigs stamps already.
Frankly, It’s beginning to annoy me. I wish there were more variety of stamps.

DSCN2534

This card was sent from a little town near Hamburg and there’s something calm about this picturesque card.
This pinkish structure is the WALLHAUS AM RESIDENZSCHLOSS in Darmstadt.

———————————————————————————————

Hildesheim is another small town in Germany.
I’m not too keen with Multi-View cards,
but this was one was sent by a french girl studying in Germany
and in her card, she wrote a thing or two about the town’s history and her hobbies,
and all were written in french ! ^-^

Je suis tres heureux ! ^0^

This bright and colorful card was actually from Germany as well.
It is Lake of constance – or Bodensee in Deutsch.
and also a famous tourist attraction.

3-  CHINA

This is my first time to receive a card from a neighboring country.
Animals aren’t my thing really, but when I saw this cute little panda and the frosted snow.
Oh well, I can’t say no to that.
This one is definitely for keeps. ^0^
The stamps were an added bonus.

5- RUSSIA

I wish a lot can be describe about this card… this one came from Russia.

and I’m not sure if this is a vintage stamp or probably a reprint, but it’s one of my favorites.
DSCN2546

This Russian sender is a translator and she wrote me a card in Chinese!
I couldn’t help but commend how good her grammar was.

If you look from afar, this is actually a bunny rabbit floating from a carrot stick. ^0^

6 – POLSKA : POLAND

This card took a long while before it arrived,
the sender even sent me a message if I have already received it.
Thankfully, it arrived safely despite the delay.
My first choo-choo train ! so happy too!

but the highlight were the handful of stamps attached.
I wish I can describe further the details of each one.

7 – USA

This nemo-esque inspired disney card isn’t really my cup of tea. But it’s a good addition anyway.

DSCN2532

This Norman Rockwell post card though was my favorite.
This one was from my sister’s incoming from the US.
Unfortunately, some post office clerks here seem to be bitter and I don’t know if it’s intentional, but
they deliberately have to stamp those “violet marked dates” twice and almost beside the poor kid’s butt. 😦

DSCN2548
and look at the stamps! 🙂

8- JAPAN

and my first itsy-bitsy Peter Rabbit stamp.

9- TAIWAN

I was a bit dismayed to receive a card in Russian, when I was clearly expecting one from Taiwan.
The sender, I think was doing swap cards and she received a lot of ehem ~ Ad cards from Russia.

and when I googled translate the phrase, It read Merry Xmas and a Happy New year! and yes,
It was in May when I got it. Oh well…
