Customs Clearance

Unfortunately, due to the new regulation in the European Union regarding the customs clearance process, I will stop doing international swaps, where packages should be sent.

The Hungarian post office sadly doesn't care if the sender is a private person or a company, they want me to pay for every bigger letter that has the customs clearance form on it - and not only the handling fee, but the VAT as well. So, for example, if you declare the cost of goods in your package as 5 USD, then I should pay the 27% VAT (1,35 USD) + 2,70 USD handling fee to be able to pick up the letter. Yeah, I nor have any idea why I should pay the VAT after you paid it once and send it as a gift to me -.-" The postage cost is already high in Hungary that I could somehow accept, but unfortunately, I cannot accept paying for the letters that I receive :(

I'm very sad to make this decision as I received so nice swaps from overseas! I try to be positive and believe that the European customs office (or whoever it is) will review this silly regulation and won't put extremely high costs on letters from private people.

I will still keep joining swaps which requires flat items to send, as they arrive to me without any issues so far :)

IN CASE WE ARE PARTNERS AND YOU'RE NOT FROM THE EUROPEAN UNION, PLEASE KEEP YOUR LETTER FLAT, so we would have no issues :) Thank you very much :)

About Me

I'm Dori, a 29 years old girl from Hungary.

In 2012, I thought that swapping is not good, as I send something for someone, I get something from someone, but I'll never talk to those people anymore. Eventually I registered, as I wanted to swap some writing papers. Unfortunately snail mailling in Hungary isn't popular anymore, so nice writing papers are hard to find :( or I already have the nice writing papers :D Since that time I met several nice people on this site and I became friends with them :)

I like surfing on the Internet, listening to music, writing letters, traveling, reading, doing paint by number, colouring books, diamond painting, and I'm also up for embroidery, threading pearls and making plane models.

Swapping issues

IN CASE YOU DO NOT RECEIVE MY LETTER: please let me know! I always send my letters - if I cannot do it on time, I let my partner know way ahead!

Nowadays "thanks to" Covid-19 my US letters arrive pretty slowly, sometimes I experience 2 months delivery time, therefore please do not start worrying 2 weeks after the swap deadline that you did not receive anything from me!

BEFORE YOU CONSIDER GIVING "3" or a "1", please contact me! Mails can always get lost, therefore I'll be always opened to solve the situation and resend my swap! There is always the possibility of misunderstanding the swap. We are all humans, therefore sometimes we might make some mistakes. Moreover, I'm not a native English speaker, therefore I might understand something in a different way. In this case, I would also like you to contact me. I would not like to make anyone sad or disappointed in ANY swaps, therefore I would always resend anything!

Favorite Music

I listen to all kind of music... really! :) The songs I'm listening to depend on my mood - sometimes I listen to rock, then rap, and sometimes pop, and dance music - like now :D I nor have a favourite artist, as favourite mean only 1 thing... but I have many :)

Favorite Books

Nowadays I like reading books about other cultures, other countries. I love books about the Islam culture and the books about Geishas, especially the "Memoirs of a Geisha" by Arthur Golden. I also like true stories that happened in the past. One of my favourite journalist, Vujity Trvtko has several books I love, where he writes about his stories from those counties where noone would go. These books are in Hungarian and Slovakian, sadly I guess it's not translated into English.

Favorite Television

I loooove Friends with Joey!! :)

Nowadays I also watch too much National Geography channel. I love Air Crash Investigations. I love aviation!

What a wonderful package of surprises I got today from you. Thank you for angeling LSRUS International Happy Mail for a month. All the envelopes with items are awesome. I really was not expecting an angel on this swap, so thank you so very much. Hope you can enjoy your summer.
