Receive postcards

About Shireya...


I am a university student who loves things like animals (cats! and owls), music, reading, writing, and studying languages. I am also interested in hearing about new countries and cultures as well as the small things that matter about you, whoever you may be. :)

I like basically all kinds of cards, but I'd love to receive a card you consider to be beautiful or interesting, or inspiring in some way. Also, I update my favourites rather regularly and would be happy to receive something from there. I prefer my cards written, but whether stamped or in an envelope is up to you. :) (I love to look at pretty stamps in either case! ^^)

If you don't know what to write, tell me your latest dream, a wish, a little secret, about the person you sat next to in the bus, anything; you can also write a little story/fairy tale/poem/haiku/drabble/etc - or, you can recommend your favourite book, song, movie and so on. The sky is the limit! :D

(If you want, you can also send me little things about your country: stickers, fridge magnets, tea bags, candies, anything you can think of that is somewhat useful.)

If you want, you can also write something in your own language in the postcard (with a translation included if it's not a language I have prior knowledge of) or even a real letter, because I love receiving things in the mail and getting to know to new people via penpalling.

Receiving these stamps from New Zealand would make my day:


If you have sent me a message and I haven't responded in a week / if I haven't registered your card in a timely fashion, do feel free to message me (again)! I might have forgotten to reply to your message or perhaps your card has gotten lost in our apartment somewhere (I have a flatmate who sometimes picks up the mail).
