My wishlists

Apart of my goal to receive one postcard from each country and one of each Unesco World Heritage Sites, I have a few more lists in mind... For example, I am trying to have one postcard from each greek island and it may seem easy, but -as I recently found out- there are 1400 islands in our little country!
Some other collections I would like to have are:

  • Great Pyramid of Giza (Egypt)

  • Lighthouse of Alexandria (Egypt)

  1. I just got back from the Grand Canyon area and would be glad to send you a postcard of the Grand Canyon if you give me an address. If you're interested, you could send me an email via my blog.
