My Received Postcards


I live in Australia, so it can take months for mail to get to and from international destinations. My time zone (Australian Eastern Standard Time) is 17 hours ahead of swap-bot time (sometimes 18 or 19 hours ahead during our summer), so if a postmark says it was posted a day or two after I clicked sent, that is why. I send ALL my swaps on time! I cannot control when they get postmarked (if at all) or how long it takes Australia Post to get them on their way abroad. If I have not rated you for a swap, I have not received it. I rate every swap the day I receive it. However if you are concerned about a swap being lost, please send me a message :)

If you have not received a swap from me, please message me before rating a 1! I send out ALL swaps. I will happily resend!

If there has been a misunderstanding about swap requirements, please message me before rating a 3. I will happily discuss it with you, and fix any mistake I have made and resend the swap!

Thankyou and happy swapping :)

About Me

Hello! I'm Lisa and I live in Melbourne, Australia. My birthday is in July. Apart from snail mail, my favourite activities are: - Photography (more info below) - Geocaching - Travel/Adventures I love to send and receive mail. I collect: - Postcards - Postage Stamps - Used Tickets (I love UK rail tickets and permit to travel) - Currently circulating coins and banknotes/paper currency. -Public transport maps and other maps -Anything to do with Geocaching -Pathtags (any theme)


I am always interested in private swaps for postcards, tickets, stamps and coins. I can send stamps, stickers, postcards, tickets and foreign coins. However I cannot send Australian currency as I don't ever have any. This is because I always use card or internet banking for all of my transactions. Thanks for understanding! I also do have other random stuff, if you'd like to do a private swap then please message me, I may just have something you want to swap for.


I have a travel journal and a junk journal.

I love receiving random bit and pieces for my junk journal. I'm always in need for cute paper, etc to use as backgrounds. I also collect blank postcards to use in my travel journal. I keep the ones I receive in swaps that are of places I'd like to travel to (if it's likely that I'll actually be able to get there!)


I love to travel, and tourist type postcards are my favourite, but I also love the following themes as well :)

  • Geocaching
  • Photography
  • Motorsport (car racing - I like touring cars like V8 Supercars, DTM, etc not open wheelers like formula 1)
  • Architecture
  • Dolphins
  • History, vintage and retro - basically just old stuff in general.
  • Pikachu (Pokemon)
  • Daleks & Tardis (Dr Who)
  • Lighthouses
  • Windmills and wind turbines
  • "Greetings from" series
  • US States
  • US States/Cities "Greetings From"
  • Unofficial "Greetings from" style
  • Maps
  • Flags (including Flags of the World series)
  • City/town skyline
  • Any countries currency
  • Planes (Concord is my favourite), boats/ships/ferries etc, maps, transport, monorails, steam trains etc
  • Neon signs and just random signs in general
  • Sculpture, art, art installations etc - the more random the better - eg: I love the big things around Australia like The Big Banana, The Big Prawn etc. I would love to see what random sculpture there is around the world.
  • Ad/free cards with good pictures, especially vintage advertisements and ones advertising a place.

I love tourist postcards from anywhere in Australia too. I have not had the chance to visit much of Australia, so if you have any blank Australian postcards, I'd love them :)

I'd prefer to receive the postcard blank in an envelope, obviously unless the swap dictates otherwise :)


I collect currently circulating coins and banknotes/paper currency. I enjoy looking at them and learning what they all look like. If you do send me coins or banknotes I would love if you could include a note saying what the coin is if it is not in English, or if it has a nickname not written on the coin or note. I'm not bothered if the coin is a standard circulating coin or a limited coin minted for circulation like the USA state quarters or similar. Same goes for banknotes/paper currency. Don't worry if you think you are sending me a coin or banknote I already have, I swap with others outside of swap-bot so duplicates are always welcome! Just send what you have :)

-Aruban Florin

-Australian Dollar (I don't use cash so I literally don't have any, especially any limited coins or old paper dollar or pound notes)

But I will add any to my collection :)


I collect any stamps, used or mint.

If you get any Australian, Irish (Éire), UK, Canadian, USA or New Zealand stamps that have not been postmarked, I'd love them! :D

I am especially interested in collecting Australian stamps with the blue 'International Post' bit on them, as I don't see many of them. If you have any of these stamps I'd love to swap or feel free to send them with a swap - you'd make my day!

I also love air mail stickers. Here in Australia they don't come as stickers, you have to lick them and they taste horrid! If you have some spare air mail stickers, I'd absolutely love some!


I shoot both digital and film.

I have instant cameras that shoot the following:

Instax Mini, Instax Square, Instax Wide, Polaroid 600 and Polaroid I-Type film.

I also use 35mm film and disposable film cameras.


I also like any sort of stationary, stickers, washi tape, paper, etc that I can use to decorate postcards, letters and envelopes. Address labels made for me are welcome and needed. Air mail stickers are also welcome as we don't have stickers here in Australia, you have to lick them and they have the most horrid taste!

Christmas cards: I prefer non-religious ones.

Tea: I don't drink tea, but I have a tea loving friend, so tea is welcome and I will pass it on to her.

Any sort of tourist souvenir is also welcome.

I look forward to swapping with you :)
