(Profile updated on 14.Feb.21)
Hi. My name is Elisabeth. I’ve been living in Norway for all of my life, grew up in Bergen about 100km from where I live now. I'm in a domestic relationship with my partner for 5 years. We have no kids, and no pets. I would love to have a cat or a dog, but unfortunately I am allergic to both :( We are dreaming about a house in Florida, US. We have been there every year since 2017, and it feels like my second home.
Since August 2020 I am a full time online student, so I’m staying at home for most of the time. I also work on my partner’s YouTube channel, website and social media. I also have a plan to make my own website/blog too, but that’s a work in progress. Got a lot of stuff to do, so I never get bored :)
Some of my interests are: travel, postcards, sewing, knitting & crocheting, food (gluten-free and WFPB), Netflix-series, yoga & meditation, music, reading, green indoor plants, coffee, tea, skydiving…
I am an introvert, ISFP on the Myers Briggs personality test. I am social, but I very much like my alone time!
I am a coffee-lover and always have to have 1-2 cups in the morning. I used to drink more, but I cut down on the caffeine because of my anxiety. I am also a tea-lover and drinks heaps of tea in the afternoon/evening. We have an entire cabinet dedicated for tea and coffee in our kitchen!
Some of my favourites series on Netflix are: Friends, Bojack Horseman, After Life, You, Mindhunter, Hinterland, Real Detective, the OA, Dark (Dunkel), The IT crowd, Modern Family, Dead to me, Virgin River…
I listen to a lot of different kinds of music, all depending on my mood. Often I also like the sound of complete silence. But some of my favourite bands and artists are: Foo Fighters, Queen, Dido, Highasakite, Lera Lynn, London Grammar, Lorde, Kafka Tamura, Avenged Sevenfold to mention a few…
I am always open for private swaps, here's what I can offer: - Used stamps - Postcards - Tea - Washi tape samples - Letter sheets - Home made envelopes - Fabric samples - Ribbons
I was diagnosed with celiac disease in January 2021, which means that I am allergic to gluten. If you are my partner for swaps containing snacks or teas, please try to send me something gluten-free. I would LOVE IT if you send me any flavour of Pickwick or Nordqvist tea! They are both confirmed gluten-free and I unfortunately cannot get any of those brands here.
The Norwegian mail service only deliver and pick up mail every second day where I live (Mon+Wed+Fri one week, and Tue+Thu the next week). I usually deliver my mail at the post service desk in town, where they forward the mail every day. But sometimes I put the outgoing mail in the red postbox in my neighbourhood, and the mail won’t be picked up until the next day they come here to pick up/deliver. I mark my swaps as “sent” when I have either handed them in to the post service desk or put them in a red mailbox in my neighbourhood. Sometimes the postal stamp can be from several days after the swap deadline. Please be a kind person and don’t rate me down for this. It takes me 20 minutes to drive to town (which means 40 minutes in total to get back home again), and because I am a student from home, I don’t go to town unless I need groceries. Especially when we have a red mailbox nearby (walking distance).
Please don’t send me strongly scented stuff. I get nauseous and get a headache from strong scents, like incense and similar.
I will re-use (puffy) envelopes, gift-wrappings etc, and I don’t mind if you do too. Please try to wrap things in paper instead of plastic if you can.
Please don’t use packing tape all over the envelope. I usually use an old knitting needle to open envelopes, so I need you to leave the top free from tape and a little free space in a corner where I can put the needle in to start. I have considered starting to ask for resends if I can’t open the envelope…
Are you sending late? Please contact me. I will not rate you down if you let me know that you will be late, but if you believe silence is a good approach… Think again.
Are you sending something thicker than a normal envelope? Please ask your postal service for a customs declaration note to fill out and put on my envelope. If not, your package will take much longer to reach me, because the customs will keep it for control. They are usually not very kind with the mail, and I would like to receive my mail not teared up or broken, thanks (yes, it has happened).
Sending me extras will not necessarily give you a heart. Reading my profile is the key to make me happy.
Do you speak German or Spanish? Feel free to write me in these languages! I am learning, and will be very happy for your postcard or note in these languages. It is however much easier for me to read these languages than to write or speak them, so my reply will be in English for now.
// Bitte schreiben Sie Ihre Notiz auf Deutsch, danke! Ich lerne Deutsch und möchte die Sprache so oft wie möglich verwenden. // Por favor, escriba su nota en español, gracias! Estoy aprendiendo español y me gustaría usar el idioma con la mayor frecuencia posible.
If you haven't received my swap after a month, please contact me and I will resend.
If you haven't received my rating yet, I haven't received your swap.

I prefer bagged tea, but loose tea is also ok as long as you pack them well and mark them with brand/name, ingredients and expiry date.
If you send teabags with text in another language than English, please write a note with the English translation of the name of the tea and the ingredients. (Pickwick & Nordqvist teas are fine to send without translation.)
And this shouldn't be necessary, but please don't send expired teas...
I have recently been diagnosed with celiac disease (Jan '21), which means I am allergic to gluten. If you can avoid it, please don't send me teas containing these ingredients: oat, wheat, barley malt.
My absolute favourites are the Moomins (the four first ones) tea from Nordqvist: https://nordqvisttea.com/collections/moomin-teas/products/best-moment-of-the-day
I have celiac disease, meaning I am allergic to gluten. Please don't send me teas containing oat or barley malt.
I prefer to receive postcards naked and stamped. But if the swap says to send blank in an envelope, that’s what I signed up for :)
