    Okay, I live on an island in Denmark called Zealand - probably shouldn't have written this in UCAS, hehe! Anyways, all the letters sent to me end up in New Zealand, where they discover the mistake and send it to Denmark. So, any letters sent to me from unis take something like three weeks to make it all the way to my mailbox I've tried to change the details on track, but it comes up with an error message - how do you change your address information, then?

    :laughing: My friend moved to Spain, and they were waiting for their letters, because they were really important, and they took like 2 months to arrive. And that's just the Spanish postal service being slow! :p:

    Please forgive me :puppyeyes:

    US post sorted my letter for Singapore to China once. I know this because it took forever and there was a China Post stamp on the envelope when it finally reached the intended recipient...

    I hope that was a nice giggle

    Who can say no to those eyes? You have my forgiveness

    Hopefully, the recipient took it lightly - I try to! it does give a good laugh, though, right?!

    It's ginormously funny once you realise what happens, of course (:

    It just clicked that my town shares the name of a very famous/major/important European city. Maybe that's where my UCAS letters have been taking a detour before coming here :p:

    Tourist letters... at least they get to see the world! I wish I could squeeze myself into just an A4 size - oh, then the world would be open to me So it is a major European city, you say? I wonder where that could be??? I'll take a guess - Brussels?

    I'd hoped you were going to say "more Westerly" - that would have cut down the number of cities Could you give me a clue? A good clue, please

    No chance

    The old town/city centre is a World Heritage Site.
