Martin Malik

My name is Martin and this is my story. I travel because it is fun and a great way to continue self-education which enriches the worldview and opens my eyes to unnoticeable things, both in the distant countries and the closest ones. Let's get to know other cultures but let's also respect and defend our own.

A few words from the author

Whilst travelling from the Christian remains of Constantinople and the ancient sands of Persia, through the Himalayas, the Great Wall of China and the dense jungles of Borneo, I realized that the world must have its order. Therefore despite my beautiful adventures and experiences I always remembered which culture I myself belonged to, and I also appreciated the beauty and values of our beautiful - White Christian civilization.

Travel postcards


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.

Please give the best description of the things you order.

The stamp and banknote service on 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.
