Overview: Postcards in August 2015

In August I received 22 postcards from 12 different countries:

  • Brazil
  • China
  • Croatia
  • Finland (3)
  • Germany (6)
  • Italy
  • Netherlands
  • New Zealand (3)
  • Poland
  • Russia
  • United Kingdom
  • USA (2)

In addition to those, my brother gave me two cards from his vacation in Sweden, as well as a card from a trip within Germany. And I finally found the cards I had bought in Assisi a few years back. They were in the exact same spot where I remember putting them – even though I didn’t find them there the previous times I looked.

There were cards of 21 different UNESCO sites, 17 of which are new to my collection:

  • Serra da Capivara National Park (Brazil)
  • Dazu Rock Carvings (China)
  • Historic City of Trogir (Croatia)
  • Choirokoitia (Cyprus)
