Street scene of Old Warsaw on Card from Poland. It surprises me that any of Old Warsaw was still standing after 1944.

I also do postcrossing ;)

I love sending postcards from trips, at this time I collect applications for postcards on my instagram and those who fall in postcrossing.com. During our postal expedition, my colleague and I sent about 150 postcards in 5 days.

I usually collect coins and banknotes, but when it comes to stamps with owls or postage stamps issued by fantastic, self-proclaimed, micronations and virtual states (Seborga, Lundy, Sealand, Hutt River, Wirtland and others), then this is what I need.

I should send some postcards again this year, not just on World Postcard Day (if that'll happen again this year). I did receive a lovely card from Postcrossing HQ.

I haven't kept count of the number of Postcrossing stamp issues... Some countries are greedy for it!

Quote from Waffle: "It surprises me that any of Old Warsaw was still standing after 1944."

From the UNESCO website:
"During the Warsaw Uprising in August 1944, more than 85% of Warsaw's historic centre was destroyed by Nazi troops. After the war, a five-year reconstruction campaign by its citizens resulted in today's meticulous restoration of the Old Town, with its churches, palaces and market-place."

Hello all,
This card arrived a few days ago. Since then I have been puzzling.
Can a 14 year old girl write like this? Then: what am I wanted to join?
And what does the red circle stamp with the "2" mean?
The stamp is reproduced in full scale on the back.
Any opinion(s)?

Hi, Heinz55. I was searching for something on google and this picture comes up to me, then I realized that was my postcard! I don't know why are you question If a 14-years girl can write like this. (after 7 years later saw the postcard again makes me cringe and feel awkward about my horrible writing.) I think that is normal for middle school kids writing like that, and I believe other people who are the same age as me can write it much better. (I am not good at English and always got low grades). At that time I didn't go to any international school, but I did my high school and university overseas. LOL (sorry for my poor English again :( )

I now have 4 postcrossing cards, all taller than they are broad. They will probably turn sideways. Does anyone else get this hassle and how can you stop it from happening?
Maxicard from the U.K. Gardens 1983 series issue. Let us see if it turns. Well I never, it did not!

Oh dear, you do have a problem! Perhaps some online shopping is in order!

Before lockdown, had you seen postcards in your local shops?
