Overview: Postcards in November 2015


In November, 21 postcards landed in my mailbox. Among them was my 600th received postcard on Postcrossing.com, a beautiful card from China with a view of Mount Everest. In all, the cards came from 14 different countries:

  • Austria
  • Belgium
  • China (2)
  • Germany
  • Greece
  • India (4)
  • Italy
  • Philippines
  • Russia (3)
  • Spain
  • Taiwan
  • Turkey
  • United Kingdom
  • USA (2)

Again, there were a lot of UNESCO cards among them:

  • Semmering Railway (Austria)
  • The Four Lifts on the Canal du Centre and their Environs, La Louvière and Le Roeulx (Hainaut) (Belgium)
  • Kaiping Diaolou and Villages (China)
  • Archaeological Site of Delphi (Greece)
  • Fatehpur Sikri (India)
  • The Jantar Mantar, Jaipur (India)
  • Great Himalayan National Park (India)
  • Botanical Garden (Orto Botanico), Padua (Italy)
  • Sagarmatha National Park (Nepal)
  • Rice Terraces of the Philippine Cordilleras (Philippines)
  • Central Sikhote-Alin (Russia)
  • Bolgar Historical and Archaeological Complex (Russia)
  • Poblet Monastery (Spain)
  • Ephesus (Turkey)
  • Studley Royal Park including the Ruins of Fountains Abbey (UK)
  • Everglades National Park (USA)

12 of them are new to my collection, including another one of the new  UNESCO sites inscribed in 2015. In all, I now have cards of 503 different UNESCO sites!

I’m currently waiting on a big swap, so that’s one large batch of cards I’ll receive in December (and all UNESCO sites!). Other than that, I don’t expect much at the moment since I sent very little during the last month. Right now I consider to just wait until the Christmas rush is over. That usually slows down mail anyway. On the other hand, there’s the “Postcards for a good cause” campaign by Postcrossing and the Deutsche Post, donating 10 cents for every German Postcrossing card sent in December. If that isn’t an incentive to send more cards …
