postcards from the world

 This collection started in a very-accidental-non-collection-way, when i travelled to Greece circa ’93, for an amazing Athens-Cyclades-Islands-Kusadasi (Turkey) trip.

Years gone by, i found myself always buying postards in every one of my trips.. 

But it was only in 2009, when i was living in Milan, Italy, and started using Postcrossing, that I finally realized i was actually collecting postcards.

In no time i became more and more addicted to getting special postcards, particularly old written ones, that you can buy in antique shops.. I started a list, and apparently its a quite ‘ok’ list.

Living in Malaysia makes it easier to get postcards around the region, so the collection has been growing.. Hopefully i’ll be able to reach my goal/bucket list wish:

“collect a postcard from each country in the world”
