The ‘Travel Postcards’ service is an occasional and seasonal offer, which at least in theory might help to pay the bills for the domain and server. I think it would be nice for many people to receive a postcard from a distant country with a personal dedication and a postage stamp. You can order it for yourself or for a friend. You can also treat such postcard as an investment.
Would you like to receive a postcard from an exotic country of Asia for just £10 ?
- what country do you want the postcard to be sent from (the list of countries will be updated before departure),
- exact address and the name of the recipient,
- what would you like to be written on the postcard,
- payment via PayPal,
- confirmation of payment sent to the email address above.
⇒ Post stamps from selected countries; usually 6-10 in a pack (good investment!!!) £20 or £30 including the cost of sending. (My choice unless otherwise stated)
⇒ old and new banknotes from Asian countries – another good investment, for example currently used and old banknotes from the former British and French colonies, or released by the Japanese Empire in the conquered countries. Usually 6 – 10 pieces for £20 or £30 including the cost of sending. (My choice unless otherwise stated)
⇒ use your imagination (price to be agreed)
Please give the best description of the things you order.
♦ The stamp and banknote service on CompassTravelGuide.net is strictly seasonal and sporadic and it depends on author’s expeditions and its dates (this information would be updated before departures). This service is supposed to help to pay for the upkeep of this website. Returns are not accepted.
♦ The price in PLN depends on the British pound rate, although I send to any country in the world.
♦ The reply to the email can sometimes take time due to the lack of Internet.
!!!Under any circumstances and regardless of the money offered the author of this site will not import: animal parts, leather, furs, ivory, corals, shells, plants, pornography, anti-Christian, homosexual or pro-Communist materials, and of course never drugs in any form.
Someone asked me once why I can’t send postcards for free. Well I used to, but life has taught me that it’s not worth it. I sent a postcard from China to one woman to simply please her, and then someone told me what her reaction was. I thought she would be glad to get a postcard from China with the Great Wall, but she gritted her teeth, she tossed the postcard in the bin and said: ‘Eh, how much money does he have to go to China.’ There were more similar situations like that. Sometimes people had something unpleasant to say to me, and others stopped talking to me. I think that to make people happy, I should rather send them a postcard from Chernobyl and say that I was robbed, beaten, and irradiated. Maybe then they would like me?
I recommend my article: ‘Is travel only for the rich‘, in which among other things I referred to envy.
