**Sorry I have been away for a while. Moving house and illness have got in the way. Bloody cancer! I'm catching up with rating. I hope to see some of you in some Christmas swaps **
I'm a 39 year old male.. I have 2 'children' ages 23 and 20 and an amazing fiancee.
I've always been interested in penpalling and exchanging mail in general. I used to exchange FB's as a child. Way before the internet, that was a good way of finding penpals!
I'm addicted to You Tube travel videos. It gives me inspiration for where I want to visit next. 2020 sure has put a halt to my travelling, so You Tube has been a lifesaver!
I haven't planned any trips 2021 yet. Until Covid-19 has done one, there isn't any point in making travel plans. I have, however, booked a trip for my 40th birthday in 2022. We fly to Buenos Aires, Argentina, then onto Uruguay, Chile, Falkland Islands and finally Antarctica... before heading back to Argentina. If anyone has any information about any of these places, feel free to drop me a line. Information welcomed in English or Spanish.

I've seen some lists of dislikes that have been far longer than the likes. I try not to be a fussy person, and welcome practically everything that lands on my doorstep. There are a few exceptions for which I will briefly explain:
Religious items (I'm not religious)
Homophobia (I am the 'T' in the rainbow)
Peanuts (I have anaphylaxis to them. My Epipen hasn't been used for a while ;)
Meat - including gelatine and carmine. (I am vegetarian)
I received a lot of items in previous years that unfortunately weren't vegetarian.
You can contact me in English, Spanish or Norwegian.

Just thought you might like to know... all the stamps I receive on your mail is sent to support the charity Guide Dogs for the Blind. So, thank-you :)
... Seriously people, there's a whole wide world out there. Why not embrace it!
I am a huge fan of all things Queen, especially Freddie Mercury.
... and lots of cheesy 80s music!!!
