England to Australia - Sunday Stamps

The ocean theme this week had me discovering far more stamps than I could show so I decided to take a fishy trip from England to Australia.

Where to begin? There could only be one place:
Start Point
The fish did not cooperate as many were from landlocked countries- those I ignored so my first stop was here with some colourful types:
Yemen
Moving onwards my next stop was in the east of the Indian continent.
Bangladesh
My last stop before landfall was at a Commonwealth island.
Singapore 
Finally I reached Australia's shores at
Broken Bay - Australia.
 For other ocean views you must visit Viridian at Sunday Stamps 34

Start Point was a good place to start.

That is definitely the way to travel to Australia. Loved the journey through stamps.

Some really interesting stamps. I have a particular fondness for the Australian set. I don't recall the UK set - do you recall when that one was released?

Not much of content but you are indeed including interesting images.

Start Point was one of a set of six stamps covering South West England issued 8 February 2005

thats quite a lot of stamps, covering many of the potential themes for today.
I dont really collect fish stamps but the Yemen ones are amazing! So vibrant!

however, as fond of lighthouses, the Start Point is my absolute favourite :)

Thanks for the details Bob of the Start Point set.

The whole of the south-west England set (I have looked it up since first reading your post) passed me by yet again. I need to be more observant.

I am late in commenting b/c of a huge windstorm here. I was without electricity (and no internet!) for 36 hours. Love the Start point and the Aussie one.
