Hi there! My name is Stefanie, I'm in my late 20ies and live in the beautiful south of Germany. I have some penpals and enjoy writing or sending stuff to random people. I hope I can find new friends here! I'm a physicist working on my PhD at the moment. I live with my boyfriend in a small apartment and we're looking for a bigger place which we can afford at the moment.
In my free-time I like to do different kinds of things, I love to read, listen to music, go to the cinema, theater, opera, art galleries... I like to write letters to my penpals and exchange postcards, photos and other stuff. I love to learn foreign languages and get to know more about different cultures. I speak English, German and Italian and I'd like to learn French and Norwegian and many other languages, if I just had more time... If you speak any language I don't know maybe you could teach me some sentences or words!
I like to knit, crochet and sew but also try other crafts. I love to make my own clothes and accessoires and try to have my own style and not always follow the lates fashion.
I'm trying to live as vegan as possible, so I don't eat animal products (meat, dairy, eggs, gelatin, honey...) and try not to use anything which was tested on animals. Please keep that in mind when sending to me. Feel free to contact me and ask about certain things if you're not sure.
mainly grunge,rock and indie, but also some musicals, soundtracks, somethimes classic music etc. my favourite bands are frightened rabbit, admiral fallow, the xx, nirvana, counting crows, muse, minor majority ... Take a look on my last.fm profile if you want to find out more about the music I like. Feel free to add me as a friend if you feel like we have the same taste.
Reading is my big passion, I can't manage one day without reading. I read almost anything I can get, but I prefer classics and contemporary literature. Sometimes I also read children's books, love stories or some fantasy.
Some of my favourite authors are Siri Hustvedt, James Joyce, Jane Austen, Jostein Gaarder, Nick Hornby, Margaret Atwood...
I'm trying to do a journey around the world in books. I'm always happy if you can recommend a book from an exotic place or just send one if it is a book swap. On my blog you can see the countries I already "visited" (it's in German, but you can still see the map and read the list of countries I suppose)
On my goodreads profile you can see which books I liked and didn't like and what I plan on reading. Feel free to add me as a goodreads-friend!
I don't watch much TV, but I love the Gilmore Girls!
I'm allergic to camomile and don't particularly like liquorice
I'm living as vegan as possible, so please try not to send animal products!
I absolutely do not swap FBs and things like that, please don't send them! I don't have much use for stickers and scrapbooking items.
Also I'm not a big fan of touristy stuff except postcards. I don't see the use in a magnet from a place I have never visited. If I join a tourist-type swap, these things are ok of course!
