About Me

I collect only NEW postcards with a REAL photograph on them! (for details see below)

In my opinion, the purpose of swap-bot is to make people happy or at least not upset them. That's what I'm aiming to do by reading thoroughly people's profiles and trying to choose the best card possible. So I hope you'll do the same for me and try to pick something that meets my preferences or at least don't send something from my DON'T SEND list...

I'll be happy if you write my card in SPANISH. ♥

I'm interested in DIRECT SWAPS if you have something from my Likes and Wishlist.

I'm not a flaker. Bear in mind that international mail may take its time. Don't worry, I'll resend if your postcard gets lost but you should give it enough time to arrive. Trust me, I've got experience. :)

Likes

I collect only NEW postcards with a REAL photograph on them!

My favourite types of postcards are as follows. I think they're quite easy to find - every country offers touristy postcards.

  • beautiful architecture - castles, cathedrals, temples, mosques, pagodas, palaces and other beautiful buildings;

  • historical sites - ruins, tombs, ancient and Mediaeval towns etc etc etc, the list is endless;

  • mammals / wildlife (but NO monkeys and apes or domestic / cattle / fish and insects). I love badger, wolverine, marten, weasel, mink, hedgehog, ferret, mongoose, black dachshund....

  • my fav actors: Christian Bale, Antony Starr, Richard Armitage, Sean Bean, Ray Stevenson, Chris Hemsworth, young Harrison Ford (like Han Solo, Indiana Jones), young Mel Gibson, young Antonio Banderas, young Arnold Schwarzenegger, Hugh Laurie as House MD; Michael Hall as Dexter (these could be self-printed but good quality - not blurry or pixelated etc).

  • Luis Royo art or other fantasy art - you know, dragons and heroes, warriors and warrior maidens (but NOT angels and fairies, please)

Dislikes

Please, DON'T SEND such postcards:

  • self-printed and self-made cards, (Zazzle and such are OK if the quality of the picture is good);

  • non-touristy;

  • people;

  • holiday cards;

  • art & drawings / cartoon;

  • ads / free (unless they cover my fav topics and wishlist);

  • book & movie characters (with the exception of my listed faves)

  • flowers;

  • maps & flags; Greetings from;

  • folklore; costumes & crafts;

  • food;

  • vintage;

  • black & white

  • night views (I can't see a thing on them - only lights and shadows).

Not my cup of tea, really. Thank you!

Wishlist & private swaps

I'm also looking for such cards and I'm willing to do private swaps:

  • my fav actors: Christian Bale, Antony Starr, Richard Armitage, Sean Bean, Ray Stevenson, Chris Hemsworth, young Harrison Ford (like Han Solo, Indiana Jones), young Mel Gibson, young Antonio Banderas, young Arnold Schwarzenegger, Hugh Laurie as House MD; Michael Hall as Dexter (these could be self-printed but good quality - not blurry or pixelated etc).

  • my Postcrossing faves: http://www.postcrossing.com/user/Kalcheva/gallery/favourites

  • bronze cards

  • Luis Royo art or other fantasy art - you know, dragons and heroes, warriors and warrior maidens (but NOT angels and fairies, please);

  • New Zealand LOTR maxicard with Sean Bean and other Boromir cards.

Tea

I just discovered the tea swaps! So I intend to join some every now and then. I'm new to this so there's a whole new world for me to explore. This means I'm eager to taste every kind of tea you're willing to send. Weird and unusual flavours are most welcome as I'm an adventurous one! ;) I have no food allergies so go ahead and try me!

More hints:

  • I hate mint, anise and pear.

  • I love cinnamon and clove and I'm curious about all spices.

  • Just discovered how tasty the chai flavour is. The weird thing is that "chai" is the Bulgarian word for "tea" so I have no idea what this is about. :)

Disclaimer

  • Bulgaria may not be able to offer the postcards you've requested in you profile, especially if non-touristy. I'm doing my best to find a proper one for you.

  • International mail may take its time, up to 3 months, even more. Don't consider it lost too quickly. :)

Sometimes the post offices take their sweet time in delivering my postcards. Confirmed: Mail from Bulgaria to the USA might take 2-3 months! To Indonesia it's been up to 7 months! Please be patient!

Look at this Postcrossing official card:

"The postcard BG-16215 to Kat n Will in United States of America has arrived! It reached its destination in 128 days after traveling 9,516 km!"
