Tour India Through Stamps
Building Web sites is one of my hobbies. But that hobby started only from September of 2000 when I was almost 60 years old. I have another hobby that is going on since I was 10 years old. That hobby is stamp collecting. Unlike most people, I collect stamps for enjoyment - not for profit. And I collect in a totally different way seldom practiced by any other collector. I have built a worldwide network of people who simply donate stamps to me. It took me about 56 years to build such an enormous network. I have thousands and thousands of different stamps from all over the world which I have acquired for free! I do not buy stamps for the purpose of collecting. To be totally honest, I may have bought a couple of hundred stamps in my whole life. I think, that does not count.
My first Web site was Stamp Collecting - Doing it for enjoyment, not for profit. That site instantly became a great success. There are over 580 guestbook entries there till date. (This should give you an idea about how popular that site is.) Anyway, that is beside the point.
Another of my hobby is traveling. Some people have asked me after I posted a slideshow of some of my travel pictures here a few days ago, if I traveled for business. No, I am not that lucky. Nobody ever paid a single penny for my trips at home or abroad. I just saved up and took trips whenever I got a chance. And I have been to many more places than what this little slideshow shows.
Recently, I combined my two hobbies - stamp collecting and traveling - to make another Web site having the same title as above. I have many India stamps that focuses on places of tourist interest. I have used some of those stamps to make that site.
Here, I have created a slideshow using some of the stamps from the site called Tour India Through Stamps. I hope you will enjoy the slideshow even if you are not (and most people are not) a stamp collector. I have used about 60 stamps in this slideshow. So to see the complete show, it will take a few minutes. Please feel free to move away, if you are not interested. This show is primarily for me. I shall watch it again and again because it satisfies my appetite for two different things - stamp collecting and traveling.
Thank you for watching. Please visit the original site, if this slideshow generates any interest in you. You will see actual photos of the places shown on the stamps or get more information about each subject in my Web site. I am thinking of personally conducting a guided tour of India in near future. If interested you can contact me through this site.
