Check out swaps we are HOSTING!

Note 1: please contact us before rating if you haven't received an item from us. NOTE 2: please read full section wants and donts. We take the time to read yours! Thanks :)

Hi there! Quite out of the blue, we took a hiatus from swap-bot. But we are back hoping to enjoy other swaps and maybe host more of our own.

We're Andrew and Sonia. Andrew is an Australian and Sonia is an American living in Australia. We've been in a loving relationship now for over many, many years and both share a love for discovery, travelling, postcards, lazy Sunday's with Netflix, sweets, museums, our cat Cloudy, stumbling across small villages, road trips and the occasional antique shopping. If you'd like to know more do keep an eye out for any penpal swaps we may be hosting!

Our main goal for being here is we are hoping to create a couple of long term penpals: preferably another couple rather than single individuals. Every year we try to visit family in the US and on occasions would like to have a set of close knit friends we could venture with.

Sonia also enjoys crafting in her spare time and has room for another pen pal or two. My sister has been a constant letter writing pal and I would like to find someone as committed as her!

PostCard wants


POSTCARDS: We'd like national cards - meaning a card that represents your country. As well as state cards too - cards that represent your state, province or county. Flag - a post card depicting your country/state or provincial flag. :), Vintage, Victorian black and white

Also, postcards depicting paintings and works of art from the Impressionist type period. Or just anything interesting and beautiful or whimsical and sparkly.

We like a personal touch to the post cards. We're not really into this blank cards. A human touch would be nice like a quote or a simple hello. :)

Death List

Dislikes: cat

  1. Anything to do with Justin Bieber, One Direction, Miley Cyrus or anything that destroys the term 'music'.

  2. Nothing R or X rated thanks.

  3. No close-up pictures of an ant please. (you know what I mean). ;)

  4. No free postcards, used cards or cards depicting advertisements or real live animals.
