Great Australian Railway Journey….


Hi ! I am very busy these days with the inflow of visiting guests in this tourist season here. It is the peak time for tourists in Kullu & Manali. People come here to get a relief from scorching heat of the Plains. Now temperature is also increasing here as today when I went out had a feeling of heat that was uncomfortable. It is the weather that I feel here these days….Now coming to the philatelic world…… Here are some awesome stamps issued by Australia Post featuring Great Australian Journey.The stamps are very fascinating and are one of the most beautiful stamps issued on Train…Just fantastic !. A journey in train is always very pleasant….This can be experienced from these stamps too….giving a picturesque view of the surrounding. I just love these stamps and wish to get them in my collection ! This is all for this Post……Till Next Post…Have a Nice Time !
