Hello Pawlick,
nice collection already...
I'm doing the same with my daughter Elke of 9. In that way I can show her and explain her a bit of the globe we all living on.
Our goal is to have a postcard from every country of the world...and we counted 193. So, after 9 months of writing E-mails all over the world (and asking friendly if they could help us) we are at this moment on postcards from 151 countries.
I've got a friend who's got a website and he putted our list of countries on it. If you want you can take a look at it:
http://www.psychoburger.net/psychoburger/newpage12.html
...and of course if you (or anybody else finds a country which we don't have yet) you always can help Elke.
...and maybe once, when I have a little bit more time, I will make our own website....it's fun to see it global...just like yours Pawlick: congratulations

i cannot believe my own eyes - 151 countries! how did you do this - can you share the know-how? my result is 54 countries only! for almost two years

pity you have one from Russia

and of course you must make your own web-page to show your collection for everyone!

It started quit easy... a friend of mine (the one with the website) opened a topic on a local forum and we had massive reactions on that. People went for their work out, people did known other people living or working in another country etc...etc..
But then started the real work...I googled and googled like hell to find me E-mail addresses and I found a lot: tourismboards,national scouts movements,expatriates-organisations, memberlists of different international clubs (of mathematicians, of coin-collectors, of scientists, of birthwatchers etc..etc...). Sometimes you can find hughes e-mail list (and to make it easy for me..ordered by country).
And then...the mailing starts...writing mails, writing mails, writing mails. In the 9 months I sended already 3300 e-mails....and what's the result: From every 100 mails 20% bounces back because of none-existing anymore...70% you don't ever hear about anymore (not intrested? classified as spam?). On 10% we've got reaction (and with exclusion of 1, all very positive)...people are sending pictures, real letters, passing by the message to their grand-childeren and go together for a search for postcards etc... I really can write a book of this all. So, from the 10% positive reactions (meaning they promise to send a card), only 5% arrives... people forget about their promise, post-offices over here or over there not always working like it should be.... after approx. 1 month after promising I reply again to the promiser for a reminder. I do this only once otherwise I really become a spammer and that's not the goal.
I never counted the hours which I sat here after my PC for her project...but at this moment I can't stop no more...we can smell the finish...but the last part is the most difficult one...africa isn't that easy...post isn't working that good over there and people are not always that fortunate to spend money for a stranger as we are at the end for them just for something luxury as a postcard (if postcards are even available everywhere)... So, we feel very lucky and positive on every card arriving and on every mail which is coming back...there are a lot of good people on this globe -- and that's a part of the story I want to tell my little daughter with this project as well...
Good luck with your collection as well Pawlick, and thanks for your intrest...
all the best from Elke and Wim

thanks for your reply — it was very interesting to read it and to trace your way, too
you made me think about new ways of getting postcards
hope i will find other people - which were not contacted by you and your daughter already - not to make them angry :) or they still be very kind to send one more postcard for me…

all the very-very best!
please let me know if one day your collection will be e-published

Hello! I would love to exchange postcards with you -- I've never received a postcard from Moscow! I live in Boston, Massachusetts, USA and I see that you already have a postcard from Boston, but I could send you a postcard from Cambridge, MA, or perhaps Harvard University or M.I.T.

Your collection of postcards

I have quite a number of postcards of Russian cities published in the Soviet Union in 1950-1970 and later which I do not need any more. The problem is that these postcards are for sale. Are you interested? Certainly I can send you a postcard of Essen, Germany, this town is not in the list. Let me know.
Best wishes
