About Me

I mark as "sent" on the same day when I put the swap into the mail-box, but if I put it there after work and it's later than 4pm, it may be that the envelope will be stamped only the next day or on Monday, if I put it there on the weekend. Please consider it!
If I didn't rate you, pls, drop me a message and I'll double check, if I got your swap!
Or if you didn't get my swap, please, first contact me! I'll never intend to flake on you, I have a nice profile and don't wanna ruin it. But post get lost...

Hello World! I'm keen on linguistics, archeology, rock-climbing and backpacking. I'm an avid nature lover and vegetarian :)

I adore languages and the process of learning them. I also can fluently speak and write in German, English and Russian.

Postcards Swap Preferences

I like my cards written&stamped with picture related messages.
Pls, don't send me written postcards in envelopes - it's the worst thing that can happen to a postcard!
View, GF and map cards, please, send only from the country of origin! For me it's pretty disappointing to get the Eiffel Tour from Taiwan for example...
I'm a collector, so I have many preferences!

What I enjoy getting in postcard-swaps :

New postcards to my collections:
♥ Buddistic Thangkas, Prayer Flags, Stupas, Himalaya, Temples, Buddha
♥ Hindu Gods & Goddesses
♥ Ancient megaliths, ruins and petroglyphs of the world prefer those of your country
♥ Ancient Egypt Culture
♥ Mosques from your country
♥ Official Postallove GF please only sent from the country of origin
♥ Caravans, Trailers, Wohnwagen, Hippie WV, boho style
♥ Lantern Festival
♥ Yoga only real photos or beautiful arts, no yoga-cats and such fun stuffs
♥ Studio Ghibli (Totoro & Spirited away)
♥ Elsa Beskow
♥ Kissing/Cuddling cute & fluffy animals or children kissing/cuddling with cute & fluffy animals
♥ Alphonse Mucha
♥ Movies & actors pls, only Hollywood and no vintage or b&w

♥ Irina Smirnova
♥ Jul, Noel, New Year, Christmas (I like vintage X-mas, gnomes, beautiful religious art)

I DON'T enjoy in postcard-swaps:
✖ meet-ups / duplicates / greeting cards / envelopes / selfies / poor handmade

✖ kids' scribbles, modern/absract art, pantone
✖ words only, b&w, unofficial GF
✖ gay/vulgar, meat/alcohol, politics
✖ Ortsschilder
✖ cartoons (if not from my favourites)

Other Swap Preferences

And about other types of swaps, which I also adore ;)!

What I enjoy getting in various swaps (in no particular order):
♡ teas (any except red, anis, honey, rose, ginger, fennel, berry teas, which just gets red and sour). If you are from the Netherlands, I will be totally happy, if you can send me Picwick with wild/forest berries - it's a tea from my childhood ♥
♡ handemade soap or other cosmetic items
♡ anything about India, Hindu Gods/Goddesses, Tibet, buddhism, yoga, prayer flags etc.
♡ any arts in Hindi, Sanskrit, Arabic
♡ beautiful photos or arts about Arabic world
♡ stamps from Arabic countries (new or used)
♡ Ancient Egypt
♡ sacred hearts / portable shrines
♡ I'm also into the Knight of the Temple, Graal etc.
♡ anything in boho/bohemian style
♡ washi-tapes
♡ items for a junk journal
♡ Pusheen
♡ water-colour pictures / mail-art
♡ crystals, gem-stones for crafting
♡ a sand dollar
♡ handmade friendship bracelets (my wrist is 16 cm)
♡ small exuisite crochet items
♡ fine embroidery items (any type)
♡ toho/miyuki beads (maybe some rests you don't need anymore)
♡ laces
♡ choco or salted cookies (but without alcohol, please)
♡ macadamia or almond nut snacks
♡ portioned porrige (like by Ruf in Germany or Быстров in Russia)

And my kinda hate-list:
✖ key chains / fridge magnets / cell phone charms
✖ soft toys
✖ polymer clay / quilling / quilting
✖ glitters, childish stuffs
✖ anything with rose or honey scents
✖ any sweets except of choco cookies
✖ haribo and all similiar jelly stuffs
✖ FB's / Friend sheets
✖ stationary stuffs like memo sheets, pins, sticky notes, letter paper etc.

I'm not going to hate you for sending me these items, but you must know they will be thrown away, cause I have no use for them. So it's just wasted money for you and disappointment for me!

Favorite Movies

My favourite movie of all times is "The Secret Life of Walter Mitty", because it is just how it should be in your life, if it's not! :)

Alt text

Actually I have a really wide range of comedies among my favourites. I like Amelie e.g. And sometimes I like anti-utopic or alternative history movies. My special preference belongs to Wes Andersen's masterpieces, esp. the Darjeeling Limited because of its special atmosphere. I hope to make such a spiritual journey one day, too.

Alt text

Here are some more of my favourite movies, franchises and sitcoms:
Marvel Universe (esp. Thor, Capitan America and X-Men)
The Hunger Games
Spy movies like James Bond (esp. Daniel Craig and Sean Connery), Bourne Trilogy (the part with Jeremy Renner is also one of my favourites ;)
Mission Impossible (all parts)
21 Jump Street etc.
Star Trek
Star Wars (esp. Han Solo)
Indiana Jones & Mummy
The big bang theory
How I met your mother
Arrested Development
Gerard Butler
Charlize Theron

Favorite Music

I really enjoy different kinds of New Age, meditation and ambient music.

Hobies & Crafts

I love stitching, wire-working, beading, crochet and (if it fits into crafts) gardening & sometimes cooking :) Simple sewing is also on my list.

Yoga, Sports

Alt text

I love yoga very much. It's my medicine for mind and body. I think it is the best thing that can bring you to a harmony with yourself. When I do yoga it allows me just to be myself and to discover my body afresh.

I really dislike competitive sports, but I also ride a bicycle and do some toner-challenges for my body at the gym. The only person I'd like myself to be compared to is me yesterday.

Comment: Thank for a lovely card. It arrived this week from Germany. And the stamps are great as well. I've been trying to get fun stamps to send on my postcards, too. And if it was machine canceled, wow. US cancelations are so boring by comparison. Happy swapping.
