Swap #60

postageairmail stamps-3 stamps

Pieter from Upper Moutere, New Zealand contacted me over Facebook to swap, and I gladly said yes! He was interested in some USA mapcards I have, and he offered postcards or stamps – I chose stamps, and WOW! He sent me sooooo many New Zealand stamps. I was so excited to get them since I don’t have many New Zealand stamps. He has literally quadrupled my collection! (Increased it by 4 times!) Thank you so much Pieter! 🙂

I sent Pieter the cards below:

Anna from Hualien City, Taiwan wrote to me asking to swap. I was happy to say yes! 🙂 She likes the “Simpsons” and snails and collects stamps, so I sent the following to her! 🙂

Stamps, stamps, stamps!

I just returned from a cruise! My fiancé is working on the ship, so I went to visit him. It was extraordinary! I left from New York City, and went to Grand Turk, Aruba, Jamaica, Curaçao, Grand Cayman and we landed in Tampa, Florida. My blog is about Postcrossing, but I was drawn to it because I love collecting stamps. 🙂 So naturally on my cruise, I wanted to visit every post office and get some stamps! I made it to every one except Jamaica (I had booked an excursion that took up the entire day).

So here are my new stamps and the post offices I visited! 🙂 The first ones are from Grand Turk:

Aruba! They had a neat collection of stamps and philatelic materials inside their post office:

Curaçao! I was really excited to go here because they have a stamp museum near the port. Unfortunately we spent way too much time looking for it, and when we found it, it was closed. 😦 But! I made it to the post office. We also went to the Maritime Museum, where to my delight, I realized the gift shop was selling stamps (including a variety of older ones!) that they sell to go with their postcards.

The last stop was Grand Cayman which has an AMAZING stamp shop right by the port. It’s called the Penny Black. I was so excited to go, and the gentleman working there was very kind and knowledgable! 🙂 I also bought a postcard from “Hell”: there is a city in Grand Cayman called “Hell”. So a very touristy thing to do is send a card from there, and then the postmark says it’s from Hell. 🙂 I really wanted to go there, but it was about 30 minutes away. Next time!
