Hello! I'm Ashleigh :) I live on the Sunshine Coast in Queensland, Australia.
- sci-fi movies, Game of Thrones TV show (and the ASOIAF books!)
- reading (sci-fi, fantasy, etc) + the comic 'Saga' by Brian K Vaughan/Fiona Staples
- collecting rocks + minerals
Right now I have a part-time retail job, but I love animals & eventually I want to have a career involving animals! My dream is to work at a wildlife park or zoo. I volunteer every week at my local wildlife park & I'm also studying in this area to make my dream come true :)
I got into Postcrossing because I love learning about other cultures & countries.
Places I've been:
- JAPAN (2010): Kyoto, Osaka, Nara, Hiroshima, Tokyo
- UAE (2014, 2016): Dubai, Abu Dhabi
- UK (2014, 2016): Scotland, Wales, England
- FRANCE (2014): Paris
- ITALY (2016): Rome, Amalfi Coast
- SINGAPORE (2016)
There are lots of other countries/cities I hope to see one day too!
I would love to get postcards that are from your own country or the area you live in.
Postcards I love to receive:
- a wildlife park, aquarium, museum, or zoo in your town/city/country
- animals or birds that live in your country - birds that I especially like are parrots & birds of prey, my favourite animals are camels & lemurs (but I love all birds & animals!)
- geology: rocks, gemstones, minerals, fossils
- plant life, succulents, cacti, wild mushrooms, forests, nature parks, botanical gardens, overgrown buildings, glass greenhouses or conservatories
- beautiful castles, châteaus, palaces, mosques, or temples in your country, showing either the outside or inside of these buildings
- vintage botanical art / scientific illustration (especially of animals, sealife, birds, astronomy)
- my favourite dog breeds: Pugs, French + English Bulldogs, Boston Terriers, Pekingese, Chihuahuas, Basset Hounds, Brussels Griffons, Greyhounds, Whippets :)
I have a 11yr old dog Brandi, she is a Jack Russell x Toy Fox Terrier so if you have any cards with similar dog breeds they would also be very appreciated! (even Tenterfield or Rat Terriers, Miniature Pinschers)
- I also like hairless cats (Sphynx) & flat-faced cat breeds (eg. Persian, British Shorthair)
Please write on your postcard & tell me about any pets you have, or your favourite animal or bird ❤
I also love stamps related to any of the above things if you have them :)
If you don't have any of the above, I also like postcards that show local festivals or traditions, city or town single views (especially with the name of the place on it), or anything that the place you live in is famous for.
Here's the part where I sound really annoying! ;)
- Please don't send me nudity or erotica; I like tasteful pinup-style art if it is relevant to my interests
- Please only send me ad/free/handmade postcards if they are relevant to my interests
- Please only send me actual postcards, not folded greeting cards or other things
- I prefer postcards that are stamped and written on, and not sent in an envelope
