Germany - Food

April 7, 2018

This great card came from Inga. She seems like a woman after my own heart!

She wrote,

"Hello Helen,
Kind regards from the South West of Germany.  This part is called Palatinate.
I like to bake cakes and cookies.  I especially like cakes with chocolate.
"Enjoy the little things.  They make life great."


Enjoy the little things.  They make life great.
 I'm not a huge fan of Peanuts, but I like this stamp.  The gang seems to be quite popular everywhere!

This lovely card from Taiwan was sent by Pei. She wrote a short note and used a gorgeous stamp on her card.

She said,

Hi Helen,

I am Pei Han from Tainan, Taiwan.  I like to travel and special places of different countries. This shows Lungshan Temple in Taipei. :-)

Pei Han 31. 03. 2018

On the back it says," May the Gods hear my prayers, may the Gods bless all.
(Lungshan temple, Taipei.)

This is the gorgeous stamp that Pei used on the card.  It's really interesting I think!

Netherlands - Movie Card

April 4, 2018

This great card came from Anjuly in the Netherlands. She wrote a friendly note on the back and talked about movies, so you know I'm happy!

She said,
"Hello Helen, have you seen this movie? It's about how Walt Disney got the rights to the Mary Poppins books.  It has some great moments for the Disney nerds, like me! Tom Hanks does a great job portraying Walt Disney. I hope you like it!

These interesting stamps feature cities in the Netherlands. Cool!

Hong Kong

March 14, 2018

This card came to me from Jason in Hong Kong.  He wrote a little about Hong Kong movies as well, so I was happy to receive his card.

He wrote,
"Dear Helen,
This is my first time sending a card to Japan.  I am from Hong Kong.  Have you ever seen Hong Kong Movie?  My favourite movie in Hong Kong is Steven Chow movie, his movies are really funny.
Take care my friend.  All the best to you.


Just as a side note, there was a rubber stamped message on the back of the card that said there was 45 yen due on the post card!  I am guessing that there wasn't enough postage.  Oops.  I didn't have to pay it though. Whew!

Here's the stamp that Jason used.

I received this lovely card from Danbo in China. He dashed off a short note and used some gorgeous stamps on the card.  What's not to like about that?

He wrote,
"Ni-hao!  This is the world natural heritage - Guilin scenery of Southwestern China!
Happy Postcrossing!

Sirpa sent this card to me from Finland with a sweet note.  She looked at my favourites and found the card there.  Since she had it, she sent it to me.  How lovely!

She wrote,

Hello Helen!

I saw this card among your faves and had it - enjoy!

When I was child I knew one dog like this - a summer neighbour had one, his name was 'Rasse' a bit like Lassie...

All the best,

Thank you so much!  I'm not sure if this is a Sheltie or a Collie pup, but Shelties are very dear to my heart.

This bright and colourful card came to me all the way from Germany.  Sebastian wrote a short little note on the back of the card too.

He wrote,
"Hello Helen,
nice greetings from Kaufbeuren, a small city with 45000 inhabitants in Bavaria.

Best Wishes

Google Translate says that the message on the front translates to "Pick Me" which I rather like!

These are the stamps on the back, rather nice aren't they?
