Asia-Uzbekistan-Bukhara What a wonderful city to visit. The old city is quite small and easy to walk around. Full of atmosphere. This Postcard is exactly how it looked. Bukhara is a World Heritage Site.
|This card was posted in the local Post office. This was right down town and I had to use the mail box outside as the Post office was closed. I had purchased these stamps in Tashkent.|
Asia-Uzbekistan-Khiva This place takes your breath away. Spend a wonderful few days here. Got here by overnight train which was so much fun. Another World Heritage Site.

Europe-Netherlands-Kinderdijk Here are the famous Windmills of Kinderdijk. The scenery around here is marvellous and it was interesting to see the inside of a windmill. A World Heritage Site.
|The coffee shop near by while waiting for the train or bus I cant remember , had a postbox..|
Europe-Netherlands-Texel This was my first time to really explore more parts of the Netherlands. So great to go up North towards the Wadden sea which is a World Heritage Site. Went across on the ferry . It is quite touristy but still charming .
|There was a Post office here but no extra stamps to choose from .|

Europe-Netherlands-Amsterdam Here are images of Amsterdam which includes its Canals which are a World Heritage Site. I have not been to Amsterdam for many years and enjoyed the city which is very easy to get around.
Europe-Netherlands-Utrecht This wonderful house is well worth the visit . It was build in 1924 and now a museum. It has some very innovative ways with walls . It is way ahead of its time for 1924. A worthy World Heritage Site.
|Initially this postcard came back with no Postmark. So sent it back and now got a postmark. Though hard to see if there is a city on the date stamp at all.|

Central America-Belize-Ambergris Caye-San Pedro Here are more views of the Cays and give you a feel for the laid back feel of the Islands.
|These are the standard Definitive stamps in use throughout Belize. A busy post office . The Postmaster told me a lot of Americans stop by, as Belize is the only English speaking country in Central America.|
North America-Mexico-Cozumel Its cruise time agin. This time North and Central America. First stop is Cozumel. Only my second time to Mexico. Here you see a Carnival cruise liner in port. The same type of ship I was on.
