About Me

My name's Kira, I'm from northern Bavaria in Germany. I'm a graduated social worker. I live in a historic palace. I'm a big lover of mountains, forests, all mountaineering activities, orchids, the color pink, butterflies and all furry animals. Let the sunshine in :D

Update March 2018: Due to a new job and a stressful 2017 in general, I paused for a year on swap-bot. I missed it a lot and I'm happy to finally have time again.


hiking, mountaineering & rock climbing, LARP (live action role-play), sewing, genealogy, traveling, reading & writing (poetry/fiction), playing Blues/slide guitar, dancing (Burlesque, Rockabilly Jive, Blues, Charleston), swing music & 50's era / Rockabilly, astronomy, going out with friends, cooking & baking (I'm vegan)

Comment: Thank you for a letter and additional goodies. I was totally confused when I saw 2 of your envelopes and one empty which arrived a week before but then it all made clear. I really liked the stationeries.

Comment: I feel spoiled by the box of pink goodies! Thank you so much :) Everything was absolutely delightful. Many hearts 💕💕💕💕 I forgot to add that I did see the final GOT episode. I thought the last two episodes were the best episodes of the entire series. I loved it. Have you seen it yet?

What a great package. I put the stocking stuffer in my stocking and plan to send the post cards to my Mother who is in a nursing home. Her parents came from Austria and I know she will love them. Many thanks
