UPDATE: 11th NOV:
Please understand that mail takes longer than usual before and even right after Christmas time :(. So pls be patient, so am I :). Last year a package from Austria to the Netherlands took 1 month at Christmastime, usually it takes a few days.
Guten Tag :)! Hello! Thanks a lot for reading my profile :). My name is Betty, IÂ´m in the beginning of the 30ties and live in the capital of Austria, in Vienna. I like cinema, theatre, going out in the evening and spending time in a coffeehouse in the afternoon, reading, postcrossing, swapping items,have just started with scrapbooking and of course I love to travel :), who doesnÂ´t? Unfortunately itÂ´s expensive and needs time, so I donÂ´t travel as much as IÂ´d love to.
Please excuse my poor English, I give my best ;).
"11 minutes" by P. Coelho and "Widow for one Year" by J. Irving
"Sometimes happy, sometimes sad"-Indian Bollywood movie; "The phantom of the opera" (The muscial by A.L.Webber, and of course I love the musical itself, too :)) In general I like all movies, except Horror and most action movies.
mostly US shows, like the "old ones" - Desperate Houswives, Sex and the City, any Sitcoms, like How I met your mother ....
cultures, countries, religions, psychology, history, literature, other peopleÂ´s secrets, life experiences, opinions, biographies....
IF YOU SEND ME A BIGGER PACKAGE PLS ALWAYS PUT LOT OF TAPE ON IT, EVEN WHEN YOU SEND IN A BUBBLENVELOPE, THANKS A LOT!
Pls always put a note with your ID, "Swap-bot" and the name of the swap in the package, I am also activ on another swapping side and maybe I wonÂ´t be able to find out whom to thank and rate without a note inside the envelope.
If youÂ´re my partner in a profile based swap and you find my wishes too hard to fullfill, just pm me weÂ´ll surley find something;). I really donÂ´t want to get anybody desperate :), this whole swapping thing is to have fun :D!
I usually use real stamps, if itÂ´s not inconvinient for you, it would be nice if you could use real stamps :). Thanks.
BTW: Austria uses â€žDD.MM.YYâ€œ date format, so postmark â€ž05.01.â€œ is January 5th.
IÂ´ve done a lot of swaps through postcrossing and have to say usually all of my sent packages did arrive, but a few got lost though :(. So yes, it does happen, that mail gets lost on its travel :(. If you donÂ´t receive my package pls let me know before you rate me, so that we can find a solution, thank you :).
If you consider rating me a 3 pls also contact me before, I am new here, so in case I understood something wrong I would consider to resend as well :).
I am an active member on postcrossing, where I also do item swaps and item tags and have a lot of references, so I am new to this site but not new to responsible swapping behavior ;).
I usually rate on the same day, so if I havenÂ´t rated you yet, then I havenÂ´t received. However, you can always pm and ask me if youÂ´re unshure :).
When I wait to get rated from my partner, IÂ´ll send a pm (mostly a month after the sent date, depending on the location of my partner).
When I donÂ´t get rated at all within a reasonable time, messages arenÂ´t answered,... then I report to the "non-raters group". I am sorry, but I think rating belongs to swapping as well as sending.
Thank you for rating :)!
(especially not flat ones, metallic ones, vintage themed ones, itÂ´s har to get them here)
