If you’re part of the Postcrossing community, you must be familiar with the term “missing countries”. So how is this term used in Postcrossing lingo? Are we talking of small countries that disappear during the high tide? Nope, definitely not, if there is such.
Let me try to put it into words for you. Here’s how I define it:
Missing Country – noun. a country from which you have not received any postcard
Sometimes, Postcrossers create a “received countries” map to keep track of both their received and missing countries. Here’s an example from Maria of USA.
SO before I take a Postcrossing hiatus, I am sending my love from across the seas to my “missing countries” and to my Postcrossing friends…
Somebody had a great time designing. Props to my sister, Charity, for the drawings. The art compensates for my penmanship, no?
The countries that will soon be off my “missing countries” list are Japan, Serbia, Luxembourg, Hungary, Guernsey, Slovakia, Slovenia, Bulgaria, France, Lithuania, Brazil, Norway, Malta, Latvia, and Macau.
Israel, Spain, Greece, and Iceland, you’re next!
