My friend who is studying in China, and who also happens to be the President of the stamp and coin club at my university, send me this lovely postcard and some cute Chinese stamps. In return I sent him some postcards when I was in Europe. So excited to add this country to my collection! 😀

A year of collecting unused stamps :)

Hey everyone 🙂

It’s been a while since I last wrote – I’ve been travelling a bunch and so it’s been rather hard to keep up the blog. I just wanted to post something today, as it is around this time last year that I started to collect unused stamps from all over the world. I did not expect to be able to collect this many countries over the past year. Now hopefully I will be able to continue to add to my collection next year; as it will get harder and harder to acquire new countries. All of the ones I have so far are because I have traveled to these places or because friends and family have traveled there and have been so kind as to find a local postoffice while on vacation. It’s just so neat to see the stamps in perfect condition, telling a piece of history. I’ll try to upload some more pictures soon. For now, here is my list of countries I have collected so far 🙂
