About Me

PLEASE NOTE: As of October 22nd, Canada Post has started rotating mail strikes. Mail to and from Canada will take longer than normal to reach you. Please rest assured I always send out my swaps and I promise my swap is on its way to you!!!

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 :)

My biggest passions in life are travelling and helping animals. I finally went on my very first solo backpacking trip at the beginning of 2018! 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

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.

I have a huge interest in photogtaphy (especially black and white photography) I am always taking too many photos!

I am a huge animal lover and have had pets my entire life. On my backpacking trip to Southeast Asia, I spent 2 weeks volunteering at a dog rescue that rescues dogs from the Cambodian dog meat trade.

I am very laid back and 420 Friendly.

Response: Hi ... I wasn't aware that you hadn't received my swap. There is currently a rotating mail strike in Canada so things are taking longer to arrive ... I would have appreciated a message from you before rating me a one. I also haven't received your package either.
