About Me

Hello! :)

I'm Ezgi from Turkey.I'm 25 and I'm a doctor. I learnt about swap-bot through postcrossing and thought it would be fun :) I've been a postcrosser for years now and I really love it! :) I've got approximately 1000 postcards in my collection,but I always enjoy getting more and learning about people in different places of the world. I've been learning Spanish by myself.It's fun,but also quite difficult.Although I dont know a lot I like to learn about Latin America as well and travelling there some day is one of my biggest dreams!

Requests

If possible please read my profile before sending me anything.Thank you!

*If you are sending me a postcard (even in an envelope) please write as much as you can on it :) I'm sure I'll enjoy reading.I also love stamps and stickers on postcards,but that's not a must of course ;) I don't really like blank postcards...

*I like hello kitty (and cathy!), kawaii, smurfs, south park and the simpsons,smiling food (:P),winnie the pooh (especially piglet) but not mickey mouse or other disney characters.So I'd be happy if you don't send me anything with them ;)

*I would be happy with new or old books,however I can't stand timeworn ones.I mean those that have gotten yellowish and lost some pages etc.Second hand books are always welcome as long as they are in a good condition :)

*Like I said I'm interested in Latin America,so anything nice from/about there would be great! :)

*Anything that could help me about studying Spanish would be great as well.Even a note written in Spanish if you speak it :)

You can also see my wishlist below.Thank you all for everything you send in advance! =)

Rating

I always try to rate fairly and I don't mind giving people a heart for a nice postcard or a well prepared e-mail swap or writing a simple thank you to express my gratitude while rating.I sometimes see people may not have the same approach as me and it makes me a bit sad especially in swaps where the aim is not receiving something material but trying to make another swapper a bit happy.I just think at least taking time to thank eachother is not a very difficult thing to do,however,I know people may have different ideas and I of course respect everyone's opinion.

I sometimes need to send my swaps out a few days late,but I always let my partners know about it.So far all my partners have been understanding about this,once again thanks to all of them! :) I'd like you to know that I don't mind if you have to send a few days late for some reason as long as you send me a message about it either and I'll never rate you 1 because it's been 15 days since the deadline (coz stuff at times doesn't arrive here that fast). If your swap is too late or possibly lost I expect you to contact me first,but again I'll never rate you 1 due to postal service faults as long as you communicate with me.

I've written this section to express my opinion about rating issues,so I hope nobody gets me wrong.It sure doesn't mean I rate everyone 5&heart or expect you to do so.I just try to be as fair as possible and do my best about making swapping fun for myself and my partners :)

Comment: Yep, you guessed right, out tastes are similar so those cards will have to travel further to find their right owner. I will keep only the Latvia card. The mosque is a night view so it will go too. :) I'm looking forward to the #3 part of this series.
Response: Yea, I pretty much knew it could be like that about the old cards :/ but I tried to choose a nice new card for you. Even if you don't like the mosque card maybe it would be nicer if you didn't tell me you're just gonna send it away... but anyways, thanks for joining my swap! i may host another one next year and you are very welcome to join =)

The place I dream to visit profile decorate!

I have been dreaming of visiting Christmas market of Germany, since I was teenager. It is just like a world in the fantasy.

I want to visit Prague one day, too.

And I want to visit the Arctic Circle. And want to see polar animals and aurora!!

I really hope to someday go to Bran Castle, in Transylvania, Romania. It's the castle that inspired Castle Dracula in Bram Stoker's 'Dracula'. :)
