It was a cold autumn in 1998.......... ten years ago..... I set my foot on the land of France....... I must admit that France, particularly Paris, is a romantic place to visit. On 11 October 1998, I climbed up the Eiffel Tower...... the wind was strong and cold as I still remember vividly. There is a mini post office up at the tower, and I didn't forget to send myself a postcard from the tower. It is a good thought of the mini post office to have its own hand stamp postmark...... all the mail posted at the mini post office would be hand stamped using the specially designed postmark of the tower.
Thailand is always a beautiful country..... and Bangkok in particular. Chao Praya River flows through Bangkok city, and the shadowy view of Wat Arun is misterious..... and the people of Bangkok carry out thier daily life as usual along the river. This particular emotional postcard was sent to me by Ratchata on 19 September 1992.

I went to Rome, Italy to attend my friend wedding..... and I managed to spend some good time in Rome, and of cource the marvelous Vatican city. I sent this postcard from Vatican to myself back home in Malaysia. The postcard depicts St. Peter's Square and the surrounding Rome city. Date: 24 June 1999.
