South Africa - Cape Town.

Big thank you to Jean Pierre for this superb postcard of Table Mountain.This is also my 44.000th postcard !


  1. Wow! That's a lot of postcards. Congratulations! :-)

  2. Johan, 44,000 postcards, to say I am impressed just doesn't express it. How long have you been collecting ? Are these all stamped and received through the mail ? I just can't get my head around how many that is. Where/how do you keep and display them ? I feel lucky to have received 2600 and that has taken me 6 years. Your mailbox must be full every day. Cheers to you. take care and keep collecting and Happy Collecting, Go for 50,000.

  3. Thank you Daniel and Glenn.
    Yes I collect cards as long as I can remember (I'm 48 now).
    When I got married 20 years ago I had mayby 2000 cards buth then I started to go to flea markets (not that I didn't want to see my wife !)and at that time you could buy several hundreds (shoebox)for not so much money.Also via family and many friends (and friends of friends) I got large amount of postcards at a time.Later I bought some on ebay and Delcampe and also some on Postcrossing (official or private).
    I put some pictures in a post.
