About Me

Hi there!

My name is Zoë and i'm really excited to join swapbot. I'm currently 19 years old and live in the Netherlands.

A few years ago I started penpalling and i really enjoy taking the time to make something for another person and share more about myself in a letter. And I think we all agree that receiving a letter feels so special and thoughtfull. My life can be very hectic at times and very calm at other times, so another penpall is too much. However a swap via this is ideal!

Favorite Books

I LOVE reading, books, going to the library and finding vintage books at the trift store! I wish i had more time to do this, because books are just so relaxing for me.

The stories I prefer are hisorical romans (and espacially the more realistic ones, instead of the romantisized books) or thrillers. My favourite author of all time is by far Simone van der Vlught. Other authors I really like are John Grisham, Camila Läckerberg and Kristen Heitzman.

Favorite Activities

First of all of course snail mailing and reading!

I also love to bake and cook. I like trying out new recipes to find the most amazing dishes. Especially cakes and pasta, however I make a lot more. The best thing in my opnion is serving your creation to other people and making them happy. I would love to receive a recipe if you have a good one;p. Preferable without meat, because I'm a vegetarian.

Another thing I love is trift shopping. I try to buy most of my clothes second hand, because I don't like the fast fashion industry (but am to poor to buy fair trade clothes;p). I can be so happy when I find something beautiful for a few euros. Sometimes I try and find some vintage books or postcards.

Not that long ago I've gotten into sewing. I'm not that good at it, but simple bags or scrunchies are cool to make. I also like to try and make something beautiful out of the trifted clothing, however I need some guidance for that;p.

Last thing I can think of right now is being in nature. It can be so amazing and calming. I cannot get over the beauty of flowers or mountains, even looking at pics can make me feel at peace.

Random Favorites

  • flowers and floral prints
  • tea, I really love discovering new teas through swaps (except maybe fruit teas). My current favourites are all kinds of rooibos and floral teas, however I love a lot more!
  • washi tape (who doesn't?) and washi stickers
  • rock music, hardstyle (and a lot of other genres)
  • history
  • wax stamps
  • lace
  • dresses and skirts
  • choclate
  • beautiful pattern papers
  • old book pages (especially with flowers or plants)
  • vintage
  • beautiful letter fonts
  • stickers
  • tags
  • postcards with drawings/waterpaintings
  • bible verses or inspirational quotes (especially in nice fonts)
  • coffee and hot chocolate
  • mountains
  • ring tailed lemurs
  • project life cards
  • cacti
  • (flower) die cuts


My address situation is a bit odd. This for the privacy of my foster brother who lives at the same address. Therefore you have to send it to my father's workplace, sorry for the inconvenience! For now I can't do it another way. The envelope therefore had to be addressed to Ronald Breedijk, otherwise it will get lost as it's a big university. Thank you so much for reading this and addressing the mail to my father;)
