Sulzbach-Rosenberg, Germany

Auckland, New Zealand

It's hard to make out but the postmark on this letter is from Auckland, New Zealand. It's suppose to have some sail boats on it with the Auckland skyline in the background, including the Sky Tower.

Mawson Station, AAT

From Mawson Research Station - the oldest of Australia's Antarctic research facilities. It was stamped and signed on the back by the Mawson OIC (officer in charge), Luc De Pauw. I also sent down a postcard to be postmarked. I was reading in Luc's blog that on the day that he did this for me, he had 400 other pieces of mail to process. Overall, a nice little souvenir from the Austrailian Antarctic Territory.
