I’ve Moved!

I’ve moved and I have a new address, both physically and on the internet.

From August 2018, you can find me at:



This page will remain as is, even beyond the point that I recreate it on the new site, but I will no longer be updating it. In the meantime, the new site is a labour of love where I’m working hard to optimize the images and upload all of my historical content as well as the new postcards I receive. It’s a mess at the moment, but please join me there and let me know what you think 🙂

Spain, Germany, Switzerland and São Tomé and Príncipe Maxicards from Corinna

This is one of the reasons that I love Postcrossing, postcards and anything philatelic. I had never heard of São Tomé and Príncipe before receiving this maxicard. And in case you haven’t heard of it either, São Tomé and Príncipe is an African island nation near the equator.

One of my favorite places when we visited Spain last year was El Escorial, and so I was delighted with a maxicard featuring it 🙂 Thanks heaps Corinna!
