Overview: Postcards in December 2016


I had planned to start sending more cards again in December, but didn’t have much time for it in the beginning of the month. It was only in the last few days that I sat down and wrote as many cards as I could. Some of them reached their destination in only a couple of days, so I could draw some more addresses on New Years Eve to make them count towards the charity campaign of Postcrossing and Deutsche Post. 17 cards sent in December already arrived and 23 more are travelling. If they are registered before the end of February they will count towards the charity, as well.

With the official Postcrossing cards arriving immediately after I started sending again and a larger swap, I received 32 postcards from 10 countries in December.

  • Austria
  • Belgium
  • Finland
  • Germany (2)
  • Israel
  • Japan
  • Luxembourg
  • Netherlands
  • Poland (18)
  • Russia (2)
  • USA

There were cards of 12 UNESCO sites, with two new additions for my collection.

  • Iguaçu National Park (Brasil)
  • Atlantic Forest South-East Reserves (Brasil)
  • Historic Centre of the Town of Diamantina (Brasil)
  • Bahá’i Holy Places in Haifa and the Western Galilee (Israel)
  • Historic Centre of Rome, the Properties of the Holy See in that City Enjoying Extraterritorial Rights and San Paolo Fuori le Mura (Italy)
