About Me

My name is Vanessa, I am a 26 year old student from the beautiful south of Germany :)

Favorite Music

I have a very eclectic music taste. I listen to a lot of different genres. Also I don't like to stick to just one or two languages, as I think music is beyond country limits.

Favorite Books

Reading is one of my greatest passions and I am not very picky when it comes to books. I read the classics just as fantasy, adventure books or romantics. I even read 50 shades of Grey although it was one of the worst books I ever read.

Favorite Television

I am a big series junkie. I loove:

BBC Sherlock

Big Bang Theory, Person of Interest, Bones, Friends, Family Guy...

I'd be happy about

I am very easy to please. As long as I see that you cared about what to send to me I will always give you a heart. I do not see why people are so cheap with giving out hearts.

Anyways, I am always happy about receiving:

  • tea (I don't like herbal tea very much)
  • hot cocoa
  • stationery
  • anything about Frida Kahlo
  • chocolate
  • marzipan
  • mints
  • scarfs (very addicted to scarfs!)
  • souvenir magnets of your country/city
  • stickers
  • lipbalm/chapsticks
  • bookmarks
  • pens
  • adress labels
  • rubberstamps

For everyone from Latin America! Please! I LOVE mentitas (Ambrosoli) and anything that contains dulce de leche

If you want to make my boyfriend Suman happy, he likes:

  • Hobbit/Lord of the Rings
  • Quentin Tarantino movies
  • Hersheys Chocolate
  • ginger tea
  • anything about hinduism
  • books written in Nepali (I know, unikely, but who knows ^^)
  • Bollywood


I am very much addicted to postcards, they will always make me happy. If possible, I prefer them written and stamped :)

I collect:

  • singleviews (please, if possible I'd prefer not to receive multipe view cards)

  • Frida Kahlo

  • Pin ups

  • postcrossing meeting cards

  • flags

If you are sending blank cards in an envelope, please, if possible no touristy view cards unless the swap requires it, I collect these written and stamped only.

I also like to receive:

  • Diddl Maus
  • Polacards
  • Greetings from (postallove and unofficial) (I have: Austria. Czech Republic, Itlay, Spain, USA, Chile, Thailand, Iceland, Canada, Germany, Indonesia, Netherlands, Hungary, Australia, Poland, Belarus)
  • Keep Calm
  • Quotes
  • Tom of Finland
  • hinduistic deities (esp. Ganesha)
  • postcards related to the TV shows Friends and BBC Sherlock
  • crazy/innapropriate cards
  • any postcard you would like to receive yourself

No thank you

This is gonna be just a short list, so please keep in mind:

  • I do not need get converted. I am pretty happy with my actual religion. Please also no religious items

  • Nothing tasting like fish/seafood/liquorice/coffee

Random things I like

  • Latin America
  • drinking out of a freshly cut coconut
  • traveling
  • blogging
  • Frida Kahlo and Salvador Dalí
  • Mango
  • palmtrees
  • the sun
  • Mafalda
  • dulce de leche
  • libraries
  • Pokémon (loved the old Gameboy games, my favourite pokémon is Lapras)
  • Harry Potter
  • Sherlock Holmes (all about him)
  • linguistics ...

Last but not least

I think it is really cool that there are so many languages on this planet, so if you write me through a postcard, please use your native language (no translation needed). I like the challenge to understand what you wrote.

I speak German, Spanish and English well to very well

I am able to communicate okish in Nepali and French

And I understand written Dutch, Italian, Portuguese and Hindi.

If you want to do a private swap especially postcards write me! I am open to anything.

Comment: Thank you for sharing. I've been to Munich twice. Love the city. The first time I visited on Oktoberfest. I am not into beer, but i decided it was the best time to visit your time. It was so void of tourists... (they all were at the beer tents) and the whole city was just for us. We visited museums and went to Opera. Happy New 2019!

Hi Vanessa, So happy you're back on ESG and thanks for all you do to make it a fun group! I'm excited about helping out and getting to know you better! Here's my quick friendly profile comment for you :) I love the graphics on your profile - so cute! I also loved seeing your postcard blog. What a great idea!

Hi thank you for organising the ESG: Quick friendly profile comment swap. I can't believe how many swaps you have completed, I am only just getting started on swap-bot. It's nice to find a fellow bookworm and someone else who likes Harry Potter and Sherlock Holmes. What do you prefer for Sherlock Holmes, the books or the Tv?

Inez on Sep 13, 2017:

Hi Vanessa!

It was really nice reading your profile! We have some things in common! I also like mango, fresh coconut ( I have coconut palmtrees in my garden 😊), traveling, palmtrees! You seem a very nice and friendly girl to me!

I wish you all the best!

Warm greetings from Bonaire!

Let's try again with the proper formatting.

This has always been my favorite work of art

I don't even know why. I just think its beautiful.

fiorellaione on Jun 20, 2017:

¡Hola Vanessa! Esto es para el swap de ESG: Spread some Art! Esta obra se llama "Caza mayor" y fue hecha por los artistas argentinos Chiachio y Giannone, que hacen todas sus obras bordadas! Me pareció que te gustaría porque su estética me recuerda siempre un poco a la de Frida, muchas aves y paisajes tropicales, autorretratos y mascotas :) Espero que te guste!

reader44ever on Jun 17, 2017:

Vanessa, thank you for sharing "your" art with me! I do love that painting! He can't be that much of "the poor poet" though...look at his "wealth" in books! :-)

Thank you for sharing!
