Stamp Collecting

'The postage stamp is a flimsy thing 
No thicker than a beetle's wing 
And yet it will roam the world for you 
Exactly where you tell it to' - EV Lucas

Postcard swapping has been a recent thing for me but what I love just as much as the postcard some are the lovely stamps I've received. They depict  so much of a country on a small piece of paper. Fortunately for me JP Post issue amazing stamps in different values regularly unlike the UK.

I've learnt and seen so much about each place costumes, currency, architecture, foods, animals as well as national heroes and landmarks. It's a little piece of the country and something to unique to that place as well. Here are some of have stamps I've received recently. I can certainly understand why people collect them.
