My Postcrossing Profile
My name is Marina and I live in the north of Germany.
I work in a laboratory at an institute for geoscience. My main tasks are the analysis of salt and water samples from Germany and several other countries of the world.
I love sending and receiving postcards - so you will find me mostly in postcard swaps. ;)
Although I recently noticed a little addiction to Washi Tapes.
I speak German, English and a little French - feel free to write in one of those languages :)
I love reading - unfortunately I don't have enough time to read all the books I would like to read, so there is a huge pile of unread books on my bedside cabinet.
I'm a crazy cat lady without cats.
During my childhood and youth I always had at least one cat. In 2018 I moved to the city and was not allowed to have a cat in my flat. My cats stayed with my parents (I visited them nearly every weekend), but died short after.
I also like big cats very much.
Other favourite animals are horses, I took several riding lessons during my youth. After moving to the city I had to quit the lessons due to lack of time and money.
I love listening to music, and also playing some instruments.
I learned to play the violin as a child, but I haven't played any in years. About 10 years ago I taught myself to play the piano a little.
As much as I fail at knitting, I have fun crocheting.
The main things I crochet are postcards (you can find some examples here).
I also like to work with paper and like to draw / paint - although I'm not really good at it.
Recently I started a travel journal, but unfortunately I haven't gotten very far yet. I'd love to get some crafting supplies on the subject of travel.

I prefer my cards written and stamped with a nice message on it.
Could you write the date on the card?
If your native language is one that I don't speak, would you please write a sentence with an English or German translation in it?
If you'll send late, please message me. I know that things can happen in life that have a higher priority than sending stuff to strangers.
So far I've always sent in time, but if I see that I should not make it, I will write a message too (even if I forgot to mark the swap as sent).
If you don't receive anything from me, please write a message before rating a one and I will resend.
But please consider that I live in Germany - sending swaps abroad may take more than two weeks.
Postcard Collections Please also send a message if you have sent something but have not yet received a rating before you resend it.
I always try to rate as soon as I get the swap, but it has happened that I forgot.
Thank you and happy swapping! :)

And again I am rewriting my profile text...
After a break, I started swapping again.
Hope you are all staying healthy and safe during these times!

Thank you! :)

I'm rewriting my Profile texts - please don't be irritated if my preferences don't look the same after you send something (probably a postcard) to me. I am happy with (nearly) everything I get :)
