The goal of Postcrossing is to connect the world via real mail, by allowing you to exchange postcards with other random members around the world.
Time for a little confession. This time I scheduled the monthly post as, for a change, it's not a whole lotta postcards travelling but yours truly. Obviously this means I won't be able to present you all the cards that arrived during the past few weeks, but I'll catch up next time. As not to bore you and knowing fully well how everyone likes to feast their eyes on pretty pictures I thought I'd share with you the second most important thing of sending postcards. It goes without saying, but first you need the card. Then you need the stamp. All followed by some not-to-be-bragged-about aka bloody awful penmanship. Plus a trip to the nearest mailbox.
But let's not get ahead of ourselves now and enjoy some of the stamps I recently purchased. Most are special issue stamps and while I've been wondering at first why there only seem to be such stamps available for Europe I only found the ones for sending mail overseas after sending off the order. *drops head on desk*. Well, there is always a next time!
How do you like these stamps from Austria? Are stamps something you care about or notice when receiving a postcard or letter? Let me know!
