About Me

Hello! I'm quite new to swap-bot and have been enjoying participating in newbie-friendly swaps! I have been writing letters since a young age, and love both sending and receiving snail mail!

I am an Australian university student. I am studying in the realm of science/zoology. I have been snail-mail-obsessed since a young age.

I collect zoological- and botanical-themed postage stamps, so am hoping to find some stamp swaps to join. On that note, I would be over the moon if a future partner used these themed stamps on their envelopes!

-> Lois Lowry

-> J K Rowling

-> Tom Cox

-> James Herriot

-> Arthur Conan Doyle

I mostly read classics, but also enjoy science-fi, fantasy, historical fiction, crime/mystery fiction etc. etc.

Postcards I like

My favourite theme for postcards would definitely have to be nature, and particularly animals. However, I am happy to receive pretty much any postcards! Preferably not free advertisement postcards, unless they are particularly nice/cute and you think I might like them. Touristy postcards are great too, especially if there is a story to go along with them (e.g. your hometown, somewhere you visited once, somewhere you would like to visit!).

Postage Stamps I like

My postage stamp collection is based on a zoological theme, but I also include botanical and fungal stamps! I also have a "miscellaneous" section for just any random stamps I love!

I collect both new and used stamps, from any country, and any dates. I don't care about the value of stamps - I just collect stamps because I love them! I do have quite a collection of old stamps that I don't need/want in my personal collection, so will send these in appropriate swaps :)

My interest in stamp collecting was sparked by the RSA stamp commemorating the rediscovery of the coelacanth. I don't currently have this stamp in my collection, but am searching for it! Other stamps I am searching for include JapanPost Pokemon stamps, Austrian novelty stamps (COVID mask, liederhosen), and any that are interesting in shape or design! Also any featuring an animal, plant, or fungus!
