About Me

Hello! Welcome to my page :) I just came back to Swap-bot community! My name is Narae. I am a married girl living in 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 5 times already! I always dream about travelingโ™ก

And my favorite color is light purple. I also love animals - cats, squirrels, owls, rabbits, bears... and many more!

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

** Please send me a message if you haven't received anything from me. I always send right on time and let you know when I have a problem to send something! So do not bad-rate on me before talking with me. Thanks :)

1. Snail-mail Lovers?

I'd love to meet new penfriends at the moment. So, please let me know if you want to be my penpal. I'm interested in long-term friendship! And it would be much better if you have similar hobbies to me - especially decorating and collecting PCs and stamps. Please send me a message if you want, with a brief introduction of you. Thanks!

PS. Iโ€™m not a big fan of K-idols or K-drama, so Iโ€™m not the right person if you want to share the interest in it :)
