One of the things I like about postcrossing is getting to share pictures and information from my country with others. I think it would be cool to someday draw an address somewhere with few postcards received. So, what’s the rarest country you’ve been able to send to officially?
The rarest countries I sent to are
I have nothing rare. But I am just 2 months here.
(no image sadly)
Still impressed it took only 5 days, I was sure the card would be travelling to Mongolia for ages.
Saint Helena, Ascension and Tristan da Cunha - the card went to Saint Helena
Since I have the option to send to repeated countries turned on, all of my cards go to either Russia, Germany, USA or China. Although I got also the Netherlands in my last batch of addresses. I was so shocked I had to check the option was still on
My rarest is Macao, which I sent in 2012
Nowhere really unusual. This one to Kazakhstan:
Svalbard and Jan Mayen. I had never heard of it before. I love to learn!
I sent one card each to Åland Islands and South Africa in October, 2019.
(I also received a card from Åland Islands just this month.)
Looks like it’s Montenegro, in 2016.
Next is probably Argentina, in 2017.
But nowhere really rare, unfortunately!
Uruguay . It took over two months and the recipient was very happy with my card
Most rare might have been Haiti, but it’s been a while …
Most recent one was Guam:
And before that, Åland Islands:
Before that, Tunisia (in travel mode!). But I guess I have had quite a bunch of rare countries over the years …
Guernsey. Only once.
But the rarest was Malawi…but it never arrived
Central African Republic
