About Me

Hi! My name is Saskia and I am a 30 year old woman from the Southwest of Germany. I live in a smaller town near the cities of Mannheim and Heidelberg and love life there. I studied Business Administration and work now fulltime in a job in logistics.

I consider myself quite an open-minded person who always tries to see the positive side in everything and who sees life as an interesting journey - you never know where it takes you. I love to discover all the things that life has in store. Being able to enjoy the beauty in the smallest of things is so very fulfilling and is always making me happy... Even if I came a long way to learn to see life that way.

I can be outgoing and talkative - but also shy and introverted. I can be out of mind - but also down to earth.

I have always loved sending and receiving mail as well as meeting new people from all over the world. It's nice to learn about new places and cultures and get to know people via writing. So I am really happy that I have found this place. I have also always had penpals. I love finding nice letters and swaps in my mailbox as much as I love writing letters, choosing postcards and preparing swaps.

If there should be anybody out there who is interested in becoming penpals, I am always open to that idea and I would be very happy to get to know you. Just drop me a message (:

I am not a flaker. If there should one day be a reasons why I will be late in sending, I would let my partner know immediately. If you have not received a swap, please contact me, so we can find a solution and I can send the swap again. Also let me know if there should be an issue with a swap received from me; for example if there should be damages. I'd like to sort that out. If you're in a swap with me, I want you to be happy about the things you received :)


... MUSIC: Most of my life I have been more into alternative music (gothic, dark wave, medieval etc.) and I still like it a lot. I am not only connected to the music but also to the lifestyle. But I am also into rock, pop and folk music. And I like musicals, soundtracks or some classical music.

... things on TV: Doctor Who, Game of Thrones, Merlin, Charmed, Queer As Folk, Bones... Quizshows and documentaries.

... MOVIES: Marvel Movies, Lord of the Rings, The Hobbit, Tim Burton movies, Memento, A Beautiful Mind, Gladiator, Gran Torino, Avatar, Les Misérables, Disney movies (Frozen & The Lion King are my favourite Disney movies) and a lot more

... BOOKS: mostly fantasy, mystery, historical novels and some old classics (books I enjoy include Hunger Games, Divergent, Eragon, Harry Potter, Lord of the Rings, Dracula, Vampire Academy, Whisper Island, Stardust, Sophie's World, Picture of Dorian Grey... etc.)

Hobbies & Interests

I like art & crafts, motorcycles (driving my own bike; fan of MotoGP), acting, reading, traveling, learning languages, being creative (painting, drawing, writing stories & poems), penpalling, singing, myths & legends, architecture, archaeology, animals, being outside in nature, yoga and things that have something to do with fantasy, steampunk and the gothic lifestyle. I am also a fan of handball and a supporter of my local team.

About Swaps

I have been active on swap-bot about three years ago, but then took a longer break due to personal reasons. So I am kind of a "second time newbie"... Swapping in general is not new to me. I have done swaps outside swap-bot, am a member of Postcrossing and have penpals. So I'm taking swapping seriously and will always send my swaps out! Swapping is fun and should make everyone happy. If you haven't received something from me, please contact me before rating, so we can solve the issue and I can re-send your swap.
I will rate each swap as soon as I've received it - if I haven't rated you, I haven't received it.

Hi Saskia, I sent your Mail Art swap 17 days ago. It might still be in transit, but another swap I sent to Germany at the same time has already arrived. If it doesn't show up by the end of next week, let me know and I will resend.
