Card no 59 – Monique (Niekje) – Hilversum, The Netherlands (PC32)

This card shows the 2010 book cover of Vaslav by the Dutch novelist Arthur Japin (born 1956).  According to Monique it is about a ballet dancer who is tired of dancing.

PostNL has introduced its first Personal Stamps for destinations in Europe and the rest of the world. The stamps feature KLM’s coveted miniature Delftware houses, which the airline has been presenting to its World Business Class passengers on all its intercontinental flights since the 1950s. Each miniature is modelled on a house in the Netherlands, many of which still exist today. The stamp for Europe shows the ‘Three Herrings’ house in Deventer.

This card arrived on 11th May, travelled 350 miles and took 4 days.

Total so far – 204,990 miles; 18 countries (including 8 US States).
