Austria via U.A.E. With a Stop in Korea
The falcon postage is not so romantic, but I can't resist adding it because I'm quite fond of any sort of bird. The US Postal Service issued a series of Birds of Prey postage last year, but they were a bit too fierce looking for many and didn't sell well. This sort stylized bird might have been a better option.
I don't typically celebrate Valentine's Day, although as I get older, I rather like the idea of valentines from friends, and my grandchildren. I just don't much like the romantic pressure. I think mail enthusiasts worldwide should take Valentine Day's day out of the romantic realm and make it a salute to our love of mail.
