mmm... let me give it a try :o) I am a 28-year-old Czech girl living in the beautiful city of Brno in the heart of Moravia, the winemaking region of the Czech Republic. I work as a language teacher, translator and interpreter and I am doing a PhD in linguistics at the local university.
Here are some of the things I really am into: theatre, opera, books, movies (yeah... the independent and obscure ones, mostly), travel (Scotland! Scotland! Scotland!), hiking and camping, cats, comics, linguistics, psychology, cooking, dancing, working in my parents' orchard and vineyeard...
I enjoy learning languages and exploring other people's cultures (next to Czech and English I also speak Russian and Croatian, so feel free to use these languages with me as well!!!).
I generally am a very reliable person and flaking is not my thing! Please let me know if you don't receive stuff from me in time before you give me 1, the international mail system is not as reliable as I am. Several of my swaps have already gotten lost (including some candy swaps!!!) and resent, of course :)
cross-stitch, card making, glass painting, silk-painting, jewellery making, cooking (does this count as a craft? especially deserts), fruit preserving (will love to swap recipes)
would like to try: zentangle (a totally new thing to me) and ATCs
I am not very picky, but there are few things...
Life is a Miracle (Emir Kusturica), Wings of Desire (Wim Wenders), Amarcord (Federico Fellini), Les Misérables (Tom Hooper), Evita (Alan Parker), Cloud Atlas
I studied Slavonic languages and literatures at the uni and so I have read plenty of books by various Slavonic authors (and many are still on my "to read" list). My favourite writers include Dostoyevsky, Tolstoy, Bulgakov, Akhmatova, Khlebnikov, Sienkiewicz, Havel ... I am a big sci-fi fan, I especially like short stories. I also read a lot of poetry (love Pat Ingoldsby), graphic novels, modern British and American lit, magical realism, historical novels. I love anthologies of short stories and poetry. I collect cookbooks :o)
Anything singable, hummable or danceable! Among my favourites (at the moment) are musicals, Adele, Amy MacDonald, A-ha, Russian composers, Pink... and many others which fit the description!
Electroswing at the moment!
cats, flowers, trees, wild animals, artisic, your town/city/area, national parks, landscapes, sea, recipes, vintage
