Two great cards from the UK arrived on the same day recently. Have a look!
23 April 2015 St. George's Day, England's Patron Saint
This is the 800th Postcrossing card that I have written. I am happy to celebrate it with you on this auspicious day. Leo

Look at these cool stamps. I've never seen the one with David Niven on it before, and The Holly and the Ivy stamp is very beautiful. It must be quite old since it has a ½ pence on it too! They seem to have been hand cancelled with a pen...I think it is strange, and I've not seen this one before.
My second card of the day came with a short message on the back.
"Hi, I am a teacher in a high school. During the holidays I love to travel. I was in Canada last summer (including Edmonton) and I will be visiting Japan this summer. Julian
I love the Keats stamp, and the lighthouse stamp is very nice too!
