#304 Travelling Envelope: Canada, Thailand & UK

My first travelling envelope has arrived home today! This is my first try with the Travelling Envelope Round Robin group in postcrossing forum.

There are three members in my group, the other two are photo313 from Thailand and anglez from UK. All of us used ‘stamp on a stamp’ stamps for the cover. I used three Queen Elizabeth II Diamond Jubilee stamps, cancelled on 25 April 2012 at Fenelon Falls in Ontario. Then photo313 affixed six stamps that commemorate Bangkok 1993 World Philatelic Exhibition, cancelled on 15 May 2012 (or the Buddha Year 2555) at Chulalongkorn. Finally anglez affixed two stamps that feauture King George V, cancelled on 21 May 2012 at Mount Pleasant.

Thank you very much photo313 and anglez, and thank you canbcpost for arranging the round robin!

#297 Cover from Thailand

Today I received a cover from Thailand, sent by Nina for the 5-5-55 Group arranged by the Nice Cover Circuit in postcrossing forum.

On the cover, Nina affixed four stamps that depict Buddha golden statues in several temples in Thailand. Thailand follows the Buddha Era Calendar and hence the year 2012 is actually year 2555 in Buddhist Calendar. Thailand Post celebrate the unique number 5 – 5- 2555 (which is 5 May 2012) with a special postmark 5.5.55. Thanks a lot Nina!

#244 Cover and Postcard from Thailand

Another cover from Thailand sent by my friend, Nina R. in exchange for Titanic cover arranged by Nice Cover Circuit in postcrossing forum.

This time Nina used an airmail cover. On the cover, Nina affixed four Portugal-Thailand joint issue stamps to commemorate 500 years of diplomatic relationship between the two countries. These stamps were issued on 20 July 2011. All four stamps are very beautiful. I really like stamps that show historical events. On the left side, Nina affixed three stamps to make up the postage rate. The postmark date is 30 April 2012, and the location is Phra Nakhon Si Ayutthaya – the historical capital of Thailand.

Inside is a postcard that shows Wat Chai Wattanaram Temple in Ayutthaya. Nina explained that Ayutthaya was the capital of Thailand around 1500s when Portugal visited it and established diplomatic relationship. Thanks a lot Nina for the gorgeous cover and nice postcard!
