Overview: Postcards in June 2016

A month full of postcards! I June I received 51 cards from 22 different countries! That means one or more cards in the mailbox almost every day. It was fun! I also sent a lot of cards and many are still on their way. More cards for next month. 🙂

 Half the cards also showed UNESCO sites:

That makes 16 new sites for my collection which is now 568 in total. Also, for now, my collection of UNESCO cards from the Czech Republic, India and the Philippines is complete. Although, this could change soon, since the next session of the World Heritage Committee is in July. They will announce new UNESCO sites and make the list grow longer. I’m already curious what the new sites will be.
