Vrsar - Istria

As for this one, it gives us an aerial view over the small coastal town on the Adriatic sea called Vrsar. It is frequently visited by tourist as it's a  nice and serene place. I thank you once again my friend Adi for these two lovely postcards!! :)

Church of Rijeka

This postcard illustrates one the most beautiful churches of Rijeka and Croatia, it is best known for its interior beauty. It is also good to be noted that Rijeka has the biggest harbour in Croatia! (According to my references). Thank you very much for this nice postcard Adi..

Nice and Simple one from Fünfstetten

Well, this is a cover sent to me by Franz. The 1st stamp illustrates the Brandenburg Gate which is built on the site of a former city gate that marked the start of the road from Berlin to the town of Brandenburg an der Havel. And the 2nd stamp illustrates the Leipzig University. It is one the most oldest universities around the globe and is the second-oldest university in Germany. Thank you Franz.. :)

Volunteerism in Hong-Kong

Thank you Trudy for your nice cover. Particularly noteworthy is the innovative design concept adopted for the sheetlet that mimics a diary page, which captures some memorable moments and features a heart-shaped stamp as a centrepiece symbolising the noble spirit of volunteerism.
