Sunday Stamps # 182

It's time for Sunday Stamps!  How the weeks go by sometimes!

Our theme this week is Faraway (romantic? exotic?) places.

First, a city known for being very romantic.

I have visited Paris twice, but at both times without a significant other so I can't comment on that.  But it is a beautiful and historic city.

Next, for the exotic:

Remember, I am in the Middle West of the USA, in a staunchly Republican county, that probably has citizens suspicious of all foreigners.  And I have never traveled to Africa.  So when a Postcrossing postcard from Morocco, a new country for me, arrived in the mailbox, I was thrilled.  How exotic!  So you Moroccan residents reading can smirk along with the Parisians fighting traffic about this blog entry.  It's OK.

So... faraway? romantic? exotic?  Share a stamp from such a place.


Theme next week:  undersea life.
Theme week after that: a short vacation break - no Sunday Stamps.

For some people, the United States would be faraway!

It's going to be interesting to see what people have chosen as faraway. I would never have thought of Morocco.

hah, Postcardy's comment made me is the exact same doubts I had of what could be considered as 'faraway', and for me the United States is indeed :)

never been to Africa either and would so much love to!

Is that a round stamp? Doubly exotic by location and shape.

I'd love to go to Morocco. That definitely would be exotic for me. Paris, well, familiarity breeds contempt so they say. It would be unfair to say that but it wouldn't be my first choice.

Morocco, I definitely think of as exotic. Sadly, I have no stamps from there. I love Arabic script.
