About Me

09.01.2021: Back but deleted most of my profile. Due to lots of returning flakers with second, third or even more accounts and an admin who obviously doesn't really care, swapping isn't that fun anymore. I really loved profile based package swaps and pocket letter swaps, but it takes too much time to vet the swaps if you don't want to risk to have to send many angel swaps. I know there are many hosts who don't care if the swappers in their swaps get flaked on because swapping should be fun. But it's no fun when flakers can return and flake again with new profiles or scammers flake on many people because others rate 5s with hearts for swaps that have never been sent. I think I'll still do postcard swaps, but mainly I'll swap on postcrossing again.

22.12.2020: Will be off for some days. Need some time to free my mind. Colleague tried to commit suicide yesterday at the office. It was a very strange atmosphere today as nobody can understand how it came to that.
Update May 2021: As some sent me a PM: He's ok, but not back at work yet.

Second complete lockdown starting from Dec 16 with most stores closed...

Germany is going into another partial shutdown starting on November 2nd. All stores stay open. No restrictions for the postal system, it shouldn't be affected, but who knows... I moved all swaps to the watchlist and will decide on the sign-up-deadline if i can join.

💙 Postcards 💙

🌷 Mongolian gerbil, dwarf hamster, snow leopard, meerkat, squirrel, koala, otter
🌷 cityview postcards esp. singleview with the name of the city on the front side
🌷 anything italian
🌷 tulip, gerbera, lavender, flower fields, pines
🌷 sunset, sunrise, (full) moon
🌷 books
🌷 anything snail mail
🌷 birthday cards in May
🌷 Halloween cards (all year)
🌷 Christmas cards in December (no religious please!)

When the swap requires blank postcards in an envelope please feel free to send any theme you don't know who to send to (except weapon- or war-themed postcards; nudity is ok). I'm active on postcrossing, so I'll find a good home for your postcards if they don't fit into my collections :)

🚫 no religious cards
🚫 no handmade cards
🚫 no ad cards
🚫 no anime, manga, Hello Kitty, Kawaii, angels, fairies, elves, unicorns, Harry Potter, Lord of the Rings, Star Wars
🚫 nothing related to weapons (I recently got some stickers with firearms. I mean, really? I'm not into weapons and I won't forward anything related to weapons, I threw it away.)

💚 Tea 💚

🌷 Searching for:

English Tea Shop: Chocolate Super Berry Burst
Greenfield: Summer Bouquet or Tropical Sunset

I would be happy to receive these, I can't find them here. I'm open to do to private swaps for these.

Please no other teas for extras, I have more than enough and mainly drink loose tea.

Comment: Thanks! Loved the autumnal feel of this card :)
Comment: Vielen herzlichen Dank für die tolle Turin-Postkarte :-) Ich finde sie wunderschön :-) Selbst war ich zugegebenermaßen noch nie richtig in Italien, nur als Kind mal in Südtirol. Das ist eine richtige "Bildungslücke", die ich unbedingt bald mal schließen möchte :-) Ich hoffe, du hattest eine schöne freie Woche und hast alles geschafft, was du dir vorgenommen hattest. Liebe Grüße!
Comment: Thank you so much :) I love the card!
