About Me

PLEASE NOTE: As of August 5th 2018, Canada Post still has a service alert on their website stating that mail and parcel services to the U.S.A are experiencing longer than usual delivery times.

I have a perfect rating and plan to keep it that way! I always send my swaps and will always try my best to find something you will love! If you haven’t received a swap from me, I am always happy to resend!

Born and raised in Toronto. I am owned by a cat and a dog and live with my boyfriend of 2 years. I am an only child and am very introverted. I don’t have many friends in real life. I try not to let it bother me and I focus on all of the great penpal and swapping friends I have all over the world :)

I am OBSESSED with travelling and exploring unknown places! I finally went on my very first solo backpacking trip! I had always traveled with family, friends or a boyfriend previously. But traveling solo was something I had wanted to try at least once. And it’s something I had wanted to do since I was a teenager but never had enough courage to do until now! I traveled for 6 weeks and went to Vietnam, Cambodia and Thailand. I had a friend come with me for 2 weeks and then I spent 4 weeks traveling alone and it was an incredible experience! I can’t wait to start planning my next adventure!

I have also traveled to New York City (twice) This is my favourite city in the entire world and I can’t wait to go back for a third, fourth, fifth and sixth time! I love receiving postcards of this city, especially black and white photography and vintage cards. If anyone has any postcards related to the transit system I would love to do a swap with you for them!!!

I have also traveled to Portugal (Azores) twice, Italy, Cuba, Dominican Republic and Indianapolis

Because of my huge love for traveling, I love receiving postcards and snailmail from all over the world. I love finding new places to add to my bucket list and I love corresponding with different types of people all over the world.

I LOVE exploring ghost towns and abandoned places. When I’m exploring these places I love taking photographs. I have a huge interest in black and white photography.

I am a huge animal lover and have had pets my entire life. I also do some animal rescue work when I can.

I am very laid back and 420 Friendly.

Comment: Thank you so much for the polar bear postcard, I love it so much! It's such nice quality and has that slightly vintage feel to it!! And the stamps are so lovely, thank you. Weirdly this is the first time I've received something with stamps that haven't been cancelled! I'm not complaining though because I can see them in all their glory haha

Just a Little "hi" from my side of the earth :D Can´t wait to recieve your letter, so excited that I just wrote a postcard to you :P:D

I missed out a lot of nice swap you are in but I think we are in the Mega Sticker Swap, so if we are not partners, we have to swap by ourselves :D
