Alright, alright!!

1. a person
who belongs to all the world; not limited to just one part of the world; can make their home anywhere in the world.
2. a person who believes fully that postage stamps and mail connect the world, regardless of where, from or to, they go.
3. the joyful experience of knowing you're a local because your mail made it to its destination

The postage stamp is truly wonderful. It can travel the world, experience the lives of a million different people, go through the doors of strangers; and never once lose sight of where it's headed.
Welcome to the land of cosmopostalan : travel, mail and words. It's a crazy little place in my corner of the woods; wherever that may be!

Bonjour from Paris!

Wow, what an incredible feeling to be in a new country after such a long time away!

From the instant we arrived, nothing but courteous behaviour has erupted from every individual.
Currently, I write this from our apartment on Rue de Turenne, where a small market sits out front a cafe on one side, and a jazz band plays on the other. The street bustles with life, minimal tourists and the sweet, sweet scent of fresh pastries.


We arrived in Paris at 7.30am and have been running on our jetlag ever since. The sheer thrill of being here has provided me with more than enough energy to keep going. Thus far, we've visited two chateaux, a busy La Poste museum, a gorgeous cheese shop that literally stole my nose (I'm still searching for it! Haha), and the quaint downtown of many different parts of Paris and it's surrounding "suburbs".

I've already drunk one pot of tea, eaten two chocolate croissants, said 'Bonjour' incorrectly five times, and sorta-better fifteen, and loved every second of what this city has to offer.

I can't get over my sheer delight at the fact that as I sit on the balcony in our apartment, I can people-watch to the soundtrack of "a busy main street-cum-Parisian jazz band-cum-the clinking of those tiny water glasses".

I'm thrilled to be here.

Until then--
