25th October 2021: I will only finish the swaps that I am in/hosting atm, and then I will be having a break from swapping until 2022. Will not be hosting any swaps in December 2021.
I’ve been living in Norway for all of my life, grew up in Bergen about 100km from where I live now. I'm in a domestic relationship with my partner for 5 years. We have no kids, and no pets. I would love to have a cat or a dog, but unfortunately I am allergic to both :( We are dreaming about a house in Florida, US. We have been there every year since 2017, and it feels like my second home.
Some of my interests are: travel, postcards, sewing, knitting & crocheting, cooking and baking (gluten-free and WFPB), yoga & meditation, music, reading, green indoor plants, coffee, tea, skydiving, interiour design, minimalism, mindfulness…
I am an introvert, ISFP on the Myers Briggs personality test. I am social, but I also love my alone time!
I love coffee in the morning, and tea in the afternoon. The perfect morning ritual is when you have to grind the coffee beans, smell them before and after grinding, then take the time to brew the coffee, 3 minutes sharp, and enjoy. — I also love teas, all kinds of flavours (almost), and my partner also enjoy teas with me. I love Pickwick and Nordqvist, I can’t get them here, and all of their teas are gluten free — I also started collecting the Moomin mugs from Arabia, Finland.
Please don’t send me strongly scented stuff. I get nauseous and get a headache from strong scents, like incense, perfume and similar.
Re-used envelopes: I will re-use (puffy) envelopes, and I don’t mind if you do too.
Please try to wrap things in paper instead of plastic if you can.
Tape on envelopes: Unless you are sending me gold, there is no need to tape the ENTIRE envelope. I am having trouble opening some envelopes because they are taped like someone’s life is depending on it. Sometimes in these cases, I am tempted to ask for a resend… I need to be able to open my letters without using a knife or scissors, so please keep that in mind when you prepare the envelope.
Sending thicker envelopes: Please ask your postal service for a customs declaration form to fill out and put on my envelope. If you send a thick envelope without this, it can take much longer to reach me, because the customs can keep it for control. They are usually not very kind with the mail, and I always wish for my larger tea swaps to not arrive teared up or broken (yes, it has happened).
Hearts: Sending me extras will not necessarily give you a heart. Reading my profile in most cases will.
German/Spanish: Feel free to write me in these languages! I am learning, and will be very happy if you write in these languages. It is however much easier for me to read these languages than to write or speak them, so my reply will be in English for now.
If you haven't received my swap after a reasonable amount of time (outside of Europe takes longer), please contact me and I will resend.
If you haven't received my rating yet, I haven't received your swap.
I would absolutely LOVE, LOVE, LOVE it if you send me either — 1. blank postcards — OR — 2. teas from Pickwick or Nordqvist (any flavour!)

If you send teabags with text in another language than English, please write a note with the English translation of the name of the tea and the ingredients. (Pickwick & Nordqvist teas are fine to send without translation.)
And this shouldn't be necessary, but please don't send expired teas...
I have celiac disease, which means I am intolerant to gluten. If you can avoid it, please don't send me teas containing these ingredients: oat, wheat, barley malt.
My absolute favourites are the Moomins (the four first ones) tea from Nordqvist: https://nordqvisttea.com/collections/moomin-teas/products/best-moment-of-the-day
Gluten-free brands: Cupper, English Tea Shop, Pickwick, Pukka, Teekanne. All of these are very welcome, thank you :)
Any combinations of flavours above and similar flavours are also welcome :)
I have celiac disease, meaning I can’t have gluten. Please don't send me teas containing wheat, oat or barley malt.
