Love to travel, even though I don't do it as much as I would like to. But hopefully there will be some more time for it later on. I have a whole world to discover! When the pandemic hit the world, it gave me an opportunity to travel in my own country. Have seen so many new and interesting places, some pretty close to where I live.

I enjoy baking, cooking and trying out new recipes. Would love to try something from your country!

Tea

I love all kinds of tea and I love trying new ones. I consider myself to be an addict to tea :)

Green, red, yellow and white teas are always welcome. The only thing I DON'T like that much, are teas like Earl Grey etc. I do drink that too sometimes, but I prefer the flavoured ones.

I absolutely love teas from "The Republic of Tea" and Choco mint from Hornimans.

TRAVELLING

I would love to travel the whole world. There's so many places I would like to see and explore. It's one thing to see photos and movies from different places, but a totally different thing to experience it yourself.

So far I've been to;

  • Bosnia Hercegovina 🇧🇦
  • Croatia 🇭🇷
  • Denmark 🇩🇰
  • England 🏴󠁧󠁢󠁥󠁮󠁧󠁿
  • Germany 🇩🇪
  • Greece (Crete & Rhodes) 🇬🇷
  • Italy (Sicily) 🇮🇹
  • Norway 🇳🇴
  • Poland 🇵🇱
  • Spain (+ Gran Canaria, Lanzarote & Tenerife) 🇪🇸
  • (Sweden) 🇸🇪
  • Tunisia 🇹🇳
  • Turkey 🇹🇷

I plan to visit Japan, The Netherlands and USA in a near future. Have you been there? Please give me some examples of what to see and do! :)

MOVIES/BOOKS

I like watching movies and documentaries. Since we got Netflix, I've been watching a lot of them.

  • I'm interested in most of the WWII documentaries, but preferabely those about concentration camps/holocaust.

  • Crime- and murder stories.

  • Movies based on true stories.

  • Nature/wild animals and documentaries about animal sanctuaries.

Do you have any suggestions on what to see? I'm open for any tips, no matter if it's movies, documentaries or series.

I prefer books about the same topics as the ones mentioned above. But now and then I also read fact books and some more "happy" books.

Some favorite authors at the moment:

  • Catharina Olséni & Micke Hansen
  • Jo Nesbø
  • Johan Theorin
  • Karin Brunk Holmqvist
  • Samuel Bjørk

More than happy to receive suggestions on what to read. I love getting new recommendations!

MY CATS

I have 2 furry babies (cats), ages 1 & 12 years old. Two males. I love them both to death and I can't say I have a favorite, since they both have different personalities.

They love:

  • catnip
  • snacks
  • toys
  • treats

FAVORITE FOOD/SNACKS

  • Burakku sanda (black thunder)
  • Choco mint tea from Hornimans
  • Ferrari’s from Tom’s (salty raspberry)
  • Jelly beans
  • Licorice (salty, sweet)
  • Red bull (blueberry, pomegranate)
  • Swiss miss pumpkin spice hot cocoa mix
  • Tea from David's tea
  • Tea from The Republic of Tea

DON'T LIKE/DISLIKE

  • Coffee (I don't drink coffee, but things with coffee taste is ok)
  • Earl Grey/English breakfast tea
  • I don’t wear make-up
  • Insects and reptiles
  • Marzipan

IF you happen to send me something mentioned above, don't worry. I can pass it on to someone else. I’m pretty easy to please :)

IMPORTANT

I don't flake, have never done and never will! And I expect you to act the same way.

Comment: I will update tomorrow but I am already impressed! :) Update: Okay, you read so many thrillers! I did add The Devil's Sanctuary to my list though. Thanks for hosting the swap, my goal for the year is 40 books, I have already read 5 so, I am off to a good start :) But that's nothing like the 167 you have achieved. I also do not like audio books or kindle books, long live the paperback!
Response: Thrillers is my thing ;) Hope you like The devil's sanctuary too. I didn't think it would be my kind of book at first, but then I couldn't let go of it! I'm pretty sure you will reach your reading goal for the year, I'll keep my fingers crossed :) Thanks for rating and the heart!

Comment: Ehh... Yeah. Gotta say this one, The Swedish cannibal, sounds freaky, haha. But I hope it was a good read. After reading your opinions about it, this happened for real?
Response: Yes, unfortunately it happened for real. I just found this in English if you want to read more: http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/europe/4631192.stm But there’s a lot more to read in Swedish (guess you can translate the pages somehow). It’s a really creepy story. Thanks for rating and the heart ❤️

Comment: I agree on The Mysterious Affair at Styles, not Christie's best. Not bad for a first novel though! I want to read I'm Traveling Alone, sounds very interesting. Thanks!
Response: I loved I'm traveling alone, hope you will like it too! Thanks for the heart.

What in the world!?! I received the most amazing box yesterday, filled to the brim with so many lovely goodies, packaged so prettily! You outdid yourself and everyone else! I feel so honored to be on the receiving end of your attention and effort. I cannot even express how special and spoiled I felt opening your RAK. I will cherish this memory for a long time to come. Thank you (◍•ᴗ•◍)♡

Kittybob83 on Jul 26, 2022:

I received your wonderful box of goodies today! Thank you so much! It was packed so carefully and beautifully. I can't wait to play with it all, it was so kind of you to send it. I love the H charm especially and I am using the bells right now. Again thank you!

Bhindblueeyes on Dec 7, 2021:

Thank you so, so, SO much for this RAK! What a special box I received, and I have yet to finish going through everything. The items themselves are marvelous, so many things I have never seen or used before but can put to good use! On top of that, the obvious care taken to pack such a nice box!! Thank you, thank you, thank you!!!!!!

Poftoffel on Jul 20, 2021:

Today I received such a beautiful, wonderful, sweet, kind and thoughtful RAK from you. I don’t really have the words to thank you….. everything was so nice and thoughtful, and then at last I unwrapped the tiny kitty from the ikea bag (hihi) and it brought a tear to my eye…. Everything just touched my heart. Your letter too, thank you for your open, sensitive and encouraging words. I would love to write you back and will do so ASAP! THANK YOU SO MUCH!!!!

Oops, didn't mean to hit that button yet. Oh why don't they ask you to confirm?!

Moving on: I just got home to finally open this magical package I received! And ohmygawd I am even more excited now! First some chocolate, of course. Then slip out your lovely Greetings from Sweden postcard and your note, and yes, I AM having a wonderful day, thank you! Then that fantastic purple ribbon tying everything together! And then, BOOM!

All the awesome shaped paper clips, and alien stickers!, and the Swedish flag pin (I love it!), and sticky notes, and memo sheets, and foxes ohmygodfoxes!, and letter sets, and all the journey cards and tags and die cuts (so cute, definitely using those soon!) and WASHI TAPE, so much washi!!, and I just love that small pad of vintage paper designs, and those beautiful swedish postcards, and all the stickers, and those little tinkly bells!!!

Breathe....

I really can't thank you enough! I'm so excited and you have not only made my day, you have made my month (and my birthday month at that!!!) Thank you so much, and thank you to the gods that run the randomizer! 🌻

PerArduaAdAlta on Feb 22, 2021:

HolycrapfreakingamazingRAKohmygodyourethebesticantevenbelievehowluckyiam!!!!!!

I have already consumed three pieces of chocolate and have only started opening your AMAZINGLY GENEROUS package!

So the day started out, I had a slip in my mailbox, so I figured someone had not put enough postage on or something. NOPE! Was I wrong! A package! From SWEDEN! And there's CHOCOLATE listed on the declaration!!!!

And then I went to work all day. I was good, I did not open it while driving. I did not sneak out to peek in between jobs! But I was giddy all day just thinking about it

Lonestarchild on Jan 29, 2020:

Oh my word. I don't even know what to say!! You sent the most wonderful and over-the-top generous package. Everything in here is just super amazing and nothing like what we find in the States. So excited to use some of this. And it was such fun to open -- packaged so nicely! Thank you for a truly wonderful swap!
