|1987: Traditional Equestrian Sports |
The romance of Mongolia's wide open spaces and horses too. One could sleep easy in those yurts after days in the fresh air of the grasslands.
|1981: 50th Anniversary of Graf Zeppelin Polar Flight|
Stamp on stamp, a zeppelin and animals, what more could one want. The 20 features a white tailed sea eagle whose nesting grounds can be found in the north of Mongolia. No walrus in Mongolia I think but we have had one this year visiting Ireland and Wales, a long long way from home. He became quite a celebrity and gained an alliterative name - Wally Walrus, It is thought this juvenile adventurer is now making his way back up to the arctic after spending spring and summer in the Irish Sea.
Returning to the stamps which feature the adventure of flying a zeppelin over the polar region with the 1931 German zeppelin stamps. One would need a generous stamp fund to buy the original German series of stamps today..polar route from North America to Hong Kong then a sight from the window would be flying over Mongolia.
Sunday Stamps theme this week is - Asia - travel to See It On A Postcard
