My first postcrossing card in my new home is from.. Taiwan! It is actually a late happy newyear card. Its because it has traveled pretty long! It has traveled a distance of 9,522 kms in 176 days. I think this one has lost during my moving.... I actually lived for some months in my new home when this card arrived.
It is a celebration card in different ways. It is my 15th card from Taiwan and....... 300th card via Postcrossing!!!!

Well, what should I say.... After my amazing experience of recieving a card from a rare country, I was not amused by receiving this one. I can not show a picture of it because its an empty card with only text. It was send from Russia. It has traveled a distance of 3,583 in 38 days. I have seen that the user also send more colourfol cards that I did ;) so maybe I was just unlucky! At least I have some nice stamps!
I was so excited when I found this card in my mailbox! I could not believe it! It was send from French Polynesia . A country with only 10 postcrossers! It so small! And I was lucky that the no 1 sender, send me this card. I did receive a card in 2010 from Guernsey, it was a lower ID than this one but I have seen that Guernsey is on 75th in the ranking of most sent postcards and French Polynesia on 95th, The card has traveled a distance of 15,534 km in 48 days.
This was such a cute card from USA . It was send by a little girl. It has a very nice text on the back. I think she just learned writing. I also love the teddybears on the front. The card has traveled a distance of 6,340 kms in 48 days. It has been a while ago when I found a USA card in my mailbox. Strange because its the top country of my received cards in the past years!

Another one from the Netherlands ! This one has traveled 78 kms in 2 days. It is send from my former hometown, Tilburg. I have studied there for some years. It shows us different rock guitars because I like the Rolling stones. Pretty cool card. It is also no 100 of the sender!
My second card ever from Sweden ! It is a rare country for me. It has traveled a distance of 1,180 kms in 48 days. The card shows us a city view from the Kaknas Tower in Stockholm. Two weeks after I have received this card, I booked a trip to Stockholm. I also visit the tower and had a great view. Stockholm is a lovely city!
The funny fact about this card from the Netherlands is that it shows us a typical Dutch thing: Speedskating! I'm a huge speedskating fan. It is a picture of the finish of the Eleven Cities Tour. It is a huge skating competition on natural ice. The last event was in 1997. We are still waiting for another one. Actually, during the time that this card was sent, it was pretty cold in my country. We all were hoping for another tour. The card has traveled a distance of 56 kms in 20 days. I think it took so long because of Christmas.
