About Me

[Edited: 19th Sept, 2019]

Hello! Welcome to my page :) My name is Narae. I am a married girl living in Seoul, South Korea.

I have various hobbies including penpaling and collecting.I collect colorful stamps and postcards, and also vintage ephemera, stickers... etc! You can see my preferences below about my collection.

Except that, I enjoy learning new languages(once lived in Lille, France so I always want to speak french well!), visiting art gallery, going for a picnic, reading a book and so on.

Oh, and I do love traveling so much. My honeymoon was in San Francisco and it was my only time to visit US.I rather traveled European countries more until now. Such as France, Germany, Austria, Spain, Portugal, Italy, UK and Croatia.. Among these countries, the city I visited the most is Paris which is 4 times already! I always dream about traveling♡

And my favorite color is light purple. I also love animals - cats, squirrels, owls, rabbits, bears... and many more! So sad that I don't have a pet now.

If you want to check my penpal / postcrossing activity, you can visit my Instagram from the link above. @milkiss_post
