About Me

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 :)

Favorite Crafts

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

Favorite Books

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)

Favorite Music

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!

Comment: Thank you so much for the extra delicious chocolates! I loved them all, especially the minty ones! They were gone in a matter of minutes! Yummy! :) We have snow in the Northern Finland but not in the South where I live. We had snow for 2 days but then it melt away. Hopefully we will get some more nearer Christmas. Have a wonderful weekend and thanks again! :)
Response: I seriously do not understand how can somebody enjoy mint chocolate :) !!!! just kidding, of course, happy you liked my chocolate choices for you.

Comment: Thank you for your tulip postcard! My favourite flowers... I like almost all, but poppies might be one of my favourite ones. Lily-of-the-valley is Finland's national flower, so maybe it's typical flower here. :) Happy autumn days!
Response: hi, thank you for rating. I like poppies very much, too. Happy autumn!

Hi M, I mailed a naked written postcard today and will mail the elephant postcards in an envelope tomorrow. It's all ready and I hope you receive them both.

Thank you so much for the wonderful package received today Magda - it was definitely worth waiting for. I really appreciate the translations too it's added a wonderful dimension to the calendars that I'll keep for the entire year and possibly even beyond 2017 as it's very special- will pop a postcard in the mail for you just because you went to so much trouble. Big hug, Mandy
