After some Russian cards, I received another card from a top country: Germany . The card has traveled a distance of 691 kms in 20 days. It shows us the beautiful part of nature in Eastern Germany. The Spreewald.

And 2013 starts with a card from..... Russia! . This time the card was a little bit faster. It took 20 days to travel a distance of 2,027 kms. The card show us an UNESCO site; Kizhi.  

The pogost of Kizhi (i.e. the Kizhi enclosure) is located on one of the many islands in Lake Onega, in Karelia. Two 18th-century wooden churches, and an octagonal clock tower, also in wood and built in 1862, can be seen there. These unusual constructions, in which carpenters created a bold visionary architecture, perpetuate an ancient model of parish space and are in harmony with the surrounding landscape. © UNESCO Worldheritage list

It seems that I was lucky to receive many cards from Russia late 2012.  And it is also a celebration, because it's my 20th official from this country. The card has traveled a distance of 2,205 km in 41 days. Pretty long again.

The card shows us the city centre of Moscow on a map. I have been to Moscow in 2009. It was actually the only time I have visited Russia.

Another one from Russia ! A very old fashioned view card in black/white. This is the St. Isaac Cathedral om 1913. Pretty cool! The card has traveled a distance of 1827 kms in 31 days. Interesting that this one took longer to receive than the previous one while its much closer to my country.

P.s. Russia has very nice poststamps!

It seems that most of the cards I receive from Belarus , are from postcrossers living in the capital city Minsk. I do not often receive cards from Belarus. Althought it is on the 6th ranking by most sent postcards. I do not remember that it was a top country in 2012. So I guess  the chance to receive a postcard from this country is much higher nowdays. This card has traveled a distance of 1568 kms in 49 days. It is an art card. It shows a painting from the collection of the National Art Museum.

It has been a while that I wrote a blog about postcrossing. Due to the fact that I decided to move in 2013, I was very busy with sorting out the things for my house and now, in 2014, I have found my old hobby back. I was missing the postcards in my mailbox and making other persons around the world happy with them. I have had many cards since I quit with postcrossing but I have never post them on my blog. I will try to upload them all in the upcoming weeks. 

Let's start with this card from Poland . It has traveled 833 kms in 24 days.  It shows us the city Kolobrzeg. I don't know if I will able to pronounce this city without any mistakses. The city is in the Northern part of Poland, next to the sea.
