About Me

PLEASE NOTE: As of October 22nd, Canada Post has started rotating mail strikes. Mail to and from Canada will take longer than normal to reach you. Please rest assured I always send out my swaps and I promise my swap is on its way to you!!!

As of August 5th 2018, Canada Post still has a service alert on their website stating that mail and parcel services to the U.S.A are experiencing longer than usual delivery times.

I have a perfect rating and plan to keep it that way! I always send my swaps and will always try my best to find something you will love! If you haven’t received a swap from me, I am always happy to resend!

Born and raised in Toronto. I am owned by a cat and a dog and live with my boyfriend of 2 years. I am an only child and am very introverted. I don’t have many friends in real life. I try not to let it bother me and I focus on all of the great penpal and swapping friends I have all over the world :)

My biggest passions in life are travelling and helping animals. I finally went on my very first solo backpacking trip at the beginning of 2018! I had always traveled with family, friends or a boyfriend previously. But traveling solo was something I had wanted to try at least once. And it’s something I had wanted to do since I was a teenager but never had enough courage to do until now! I traveled for 6 weeks and went to Vietnam, Cambodia and Thailand. I had a friend come with me for 2 weeks and then I spent 4 weeks traveling alone and it was an incredible experience! I can’t wait to start planning my next adventure!

I have also traveled to New York City (twice) This is my favourite city in the entire world and I can’t wait to go back for a third, fourth, fifth and sixth time! I love receiving postcards of this city, especially black and white photography and vintage cards. If anyone has any postcards related to the transit system I would love to do a swap with you for them!!!

I have also traveled to Portugal (Azores) twice, Italy, Cuba, Dominican Republic and Indianapolis

I love receiving postcards and snailmail from all over the world. I love finding new places to add to my bucket list and I love corresponding with different types of people all over the world.

I LOVE exploring ghost towns and abandoned places.

I have a huge interest in photogtaphy (especially black and white photography) I am always taking too many photos!

I am a huge animal lover and have had pets my entire life. On my backpacking trip to Southeast Asia, I spent 2 weeks volunteering at a dog rescue that rescues dogs from the Cambodian dog meat trade.

I am very laid back and 420 Friendly.

Comment: Thank you for all the wonderful goodies I found in your envelope. Just curious in Why it took so long to get here since it's from Canada?
Response: I am SO relieved it finally arrived!! There was a postal strike here in Canada so that is why it was so delayed. After the strike was over, there were huge delays due to the backlog of mail and Christmas parcels over the holidays. Thanks for your patience! I hope the map postcard will show up next!!!

Comment: I did pm sender, and I do get that the Canada postal service has had rolling strikes, since OCT. This swaps deadline was in OCT. I have pmed Rachelswaps, she did reply. She has not been on Swapbot since DEC 2nd as of this date. I will gladly rate it a 5 for a resend, when she returns.
Response: You did message me but did not give me a chance to reply before rating me a 1. Despite the deadline being in October, I had NO idea you did not receive my card until you messaged me in December when I was away on Christmas holidays. I would have appreciated a chance to resend before being rated a 1. Even if she did let me resend at the beginning of December, the likelyhood of it arriving by the 23rd would have been slim to none with the Christmas holidays and backlog of mail so a bit more patience would have been appreciated. Afterall, I only just found out you didnt get my card

Response: Hi ... I wasn't aware that you hadn't received my swap. There is currently a rotating mail strike in Canada so things are taking longer to arrive ... I would have appreciated a message from you before rating me a one. I also haven't received your package either.
