**this post will be updated when new covers arrive. Last update: 26/12/2009**

covers of the week (except Christmas covers)

First, a place where I've been, that I loved, and where I want to go back one day: Bulle, Gruyère, Switzerland. Inside the walls of this wonderful castle I eat the most delicious strawberries with Gruyère cheese and I've seen the first Bernese Mountain dog. :D

Second, a place where I'm in almost everyday: Lisbon! This awesome French minisheet shows some of the most known monuments of Lisbon. But there's much more to see here!

This FDC was sent as a gift for the First Anniversary of my Philatelic RR at Postcrossing. It was a very nice surprise! The cancelations are also very beautiful.

Another speachless cover from Australia. One of the covers that make someone collect bird stamps! :)

Brazil coming from Asia

A beautiful surprise arrived from Hong Kong. The joint issue HK-BR on football.

And it came with an extra surprise on the back. Besides the postmark of the Hong Kong post offices, it also received a postmark from the PT post offices, from a town that is not my own! :D This means this lucky guy travelled more that he should! ;)

Beautiful cards with beautiful stamps!

I love almost all kind of nuts! It was a nice surprise to receive this "nut" card from some nuts from Netherlands! :D Too bad the stamps were not cancelled, they are so beautiful they deserved more!

Another good example from the country of tulips and windmills. The 2 donkeys are french but the lovely stamps are definitely Dutch! Another amazing official card from Postcrossing.

Another official card, now from China. The Aurora Borealis stamps are amazing!

Last but not least, an official from Belarus. Amazing stamps!
