Milan Zacek from Czech sent me this nice cover.He used 2012 London Olympic issue and inside the cover there were lots of surprises.There were some used Czech stamps and two postcards from Prague (capital city of Czech Republic) and Kromeriz (city which Milos lives).Thanks Milan for this nice swap.
Milos Leng sent me this cover from Slovakia and it took such a long time than normall covers arrive.Anyway I'm happy to have this since one of my gap fills.There are 2012 London Paralympic stamps.Thank you very much Milos for the swap.
This cover from Mostar sent by Zoran Cubela.There are three equally righted postal authorities in Bosnia & Herzegovina and this one is from Croatian Postal Administration in Mostar.Thank you very much Zoran for this unique cover.
Seems like I got my many favorite covers yesterday.This lovely cover is from Belgium.Thank you very much Praifa for this cover.As I asked and wanted Praifa used a sheet of much beloved Belgium born cartoon character TIN TIN.Needless to say that Tin Tin is much famous in Sri Lanka as well.This cover features a scene from "Tin Tin in Congo".Also there were some amazing stamps on this cover.Thank you very much Praifa for this treat and I totally love this cover.
This is the most unforgettable cover in the whole collection.Praifa enclosed following 2 souvenir sheets in a covered cardboard folder.A day before I planned to throw away Praifa asked me about other stamps she sent.If she didn't tell me about those I would have lost this beautiful sheets.I thought that folder was a normal cardboard like other collectors insert to avoid the cover bending.Anyway I'm happy with what happened at the end.
This is the first cover from Greece.Kakava Helen sent me this cover when we exchanged stamps.We both exchanged 50 used stamps from our countries and inside the cover there were some beautiful Greece stamps.The majority of the stamps were about ancient Greece.Greek Culture and Greek gods.Thanks Helen!
This is my third cover from Nepal.As same as previous covers this one is also from Heli.He used beautiful stamps this time for the cover.There is Mt Mera Peak stamp and some Flora and fauna stamps as well.Thank you very much Heli! without you I will never get this much covers from Nepal.
This is one of my favorite covers in my collection.Laura Termes from Canada sent me this beautiful cover when I asked her for odd shaped stamps.She used 4 stamps about hot air balloons.It took 15 days to arrive Sri Lanka.Thank you very much Laura for this nice swap.

My second cover from Nepal thanks to Heli.He posted this cover on 2012.09.27 and I got it on 2012.10.08.He used 2 stamps of Late Nepalese prime minister Girija Parasad Koirala (1924-2010).Inside the cover there was a nice card with his best wishes for my collection.The cover is made out of recycled materials I think.Thanks Heli!
