Last year, I fell behind on a lot of swaps for various reasons and messed up pretty badly on a couple of swaps. I decided to take a break from swap-bot until I was in a better place and life wasn't so stressful. I've missed swap-bot so much! I have a few snail mail friends who I enjoy writing to, but I've missed the randomness of swap-bot. Life is treating me quite kindly at the moment and so I've decided to return.
In type 2 and 3 swaps: If you don't receive anything from me within a reasonable amount of time, please get in touch with me and let me know. I always purchase proof of posting for international swaps.
If you haven't received a rating from me, don't hesitate to send me a message and remind me. In email swaps, I tend to get confused with rating as there are often so many partners!
Some shameless self promotion: I've just released an EP called Here We Are, which you can download on band camp https://elliefountain.bandcamp.com
I'm a 22 year old music student. I love meeting new people and learning new things. I have a strong desire to travel. I went to Bali in 2015 and absolutely loved it. I'd love to travel more of Asia, particularly Vietnam, Cambodia and Japan. However, I have plans to go to Iceland in the next couple of years and would like to explore Finland, Sweden, Norway and Denmark.

I collect postcards, my preferred postcards are:
Pin up girls
Any used postcards (I'm so nosey and love reading the messages on the back)
Woodland creatures (photos and drawings) - especially foxes and squirrels
Elephants (photos and drawings)
Owls (photos and drawings)
I really don't like anything tacky. No "wish you were here", unless it's a vintage postcard. And no multi view tourist postcards.
I am a vegetarian, so please don't send me anything with meat or gelatine in. I'm going vegan, so non-dairy/egg products would be great, but I won't get mad if I'm sent dairy or egg products. I understand that vegan food can be super expensive.
I like pretty much every food. The only foods I don't really like are liquorice, carrots, olives, tea and cinnamon.
Please do not send me
Tea (unless herbal)
Lavender or geranium scents
