About Me

Hello from Germany ! My name is Sarah, 36 years old and in a small city between the Ruhr Area and Sauerland in the state of Northrhine Westphalia. I live with my hubby and our two kids (19 & 16 years old).

I love receiving happy mail. Postcards, letters from my penpals and swaps. It is part of my live since I was in my young teeanage years.

Other things I like doing on my free time are reading, going on walks, meeting friends, spending time with my family, cooking & baking, taking photos and watching movies/series.

I really love to travel and hope to visit many places all around the glope. That is one reason why I collect touristy postcards and fridge magnets. I always bring one home from my journeys. And as I can not travel to all the places I would like to visit I am happy to receive them in my swaps too.

♦ German postal service (or mabye postal services in general) are very slow at the moment so please be patient if my swap will take a bit longer. If you do not receive anything from me after a long time please contact me. ♦

Snacks & Co.

If you are my partner in a food related swap, you can make me happy by sending sour candy. I love Mexican and Asian candy, the combination of sweet, sour and spicy is so yummy. I also love Peeps, Jolly Rancher, M&Ms, Butterfinger, chewy Sweet Tarts, Oreos, Kitkats and Twizzlers, Salt water toffee, fudge and maple flavour. I am always open to try unusal interesting flavours.

Savoury snacks are also welcome. Cheese and spicy flavours are my favourites.

I drink tea, coffee, chai latte, matcha latte..... I like Bigelow tea (Egg nogg and Peppermit bark are my fav).

I like to try things typical from your country.


Colours grey, orange and purple

Handmade goodies (sorry, not my thing)

Toys for kids or pets (no need for it)

Dried fruits, raisins, cabbage.

Postcards with childish, corny, silly or offensive motives.

Paterns with skulls, big floral motives, childish motives (like cartoons, unicorns,....) or to many colours on it.


I am collecting touristy postcards. Multi and single view postcadrs, postcards with famous sights, maps or typical things from your country like traditional dresses, food, recipes, language, holidays or similar on it.

I am not a big fan of postcards with animal motives, movie/series scenes, celebraties, cartoons, art or funny motives.

Exceptions are sheep, otter, capybaras, pandas or dachshund.

When it is the time of the year I like sesonal greetings like christmas or easter cards.

My wish is to have a map/state/greetings from all 50 US States. Soon I will add a list of the states I already have on my collection. So if you are my swap partner and your state is still missing I would be more than happy if you would helpt to finish my collection :-)

Missing states: AL, AK, DE, DC, FL, GA, HI, ID, IL, IN, KS, KY, LA, ME, MI, MO, MT, Ne, NV, NH, NJ, NY, NC, ND, OH, OK, OR, PA, RI, SC, SD, TN, UT, VT, VA, WA, WV, WI, WY

AZ, MN an MS in a vertical/landscape format would be cool too.

Comment: Thanks for the swap and the great photos. Now I'm all hungry and need to fins a Moroccan bakery. Sorry for the delay in rating. I just found your message in my junk folder. I have to learn to check that more often.
Comment: Hi Sarah. Thank you for your email - it sounds like you've had some great experiences and I'm jealous that you have so much bordering where you live! Vietnam has always been a place that I'd love to experience ... maybe one day I will :) Your pictures were beautiful too. Thank you again and happy travelling!!!

Comment: Thanks for the great postcard!
Comment: Thanks for sharing! I loved reading your email. Interesting, noodles with ketchup, really? What is Maggi sauce? I also love Christmas, especially the food. Yeah, I also love chicken soup when I'm sick and when I'm not. Also called Jewish penicillin.
Response: Thank you so much for the lovely rating. Maggi Sauce is a liquid seasoning. Would say it is the German version of say sauce. You can add it to nearly anything. Don’t tell it to any Italian, they will possibly punish me for pairing it but as a kid I loved noodles with ketchup πŸ˜‚

Comment: Thank you for your answers. We had a few of the same, but I guess that's bound to happen when you have fifty questions. I love Haribo Goldbears. I forgot to add them to my snack llist.
Comment: Thank you, I've been to Germany three times but never to Dresden, best wishes. Richard
