Note: In July of 2019 I moved from Finland to Sweden. I hope to get back to swapping soon. :)
Profile last updated: Jul 24th, 2019
I am a 27 yo student, I'm originally from Southern Finland, but I have recently moved to Southern Sweden.
Languages I can speak: Finnish and English mostly. I do understand Swedish but I'm not very good at writing or speaking it. I know, I know. I must learn now, haha. I know some basic Japanese and very little Korean. I have also taken beginner classes in Mandarin Chinese and French.
I enjoy snail mail, collecting stamps, knitting, studying languages, meeting new people and reading. I am interested in culture, history, politics, health and travelling.
I like extraordinary, creative, beautiful cards, and cards with such a stunning image that it could be displayed in an exhibition. I don't like boring city views (to me, all city views look boring) or touristy postcards, and in most cases I dislike cards with text on front (does not included vintage advertisement themed).
I prefer my cards sent written in an envelope (unless the swap is for unwritten cards), because I collect stamps, so even if the swap asks for naked postcards, if it doesn't cost you extra money or trouble, I'd like it to be sent in an envelope. :)
I do not collect any kind of touristic cards, even if they feature windmills, trains or other subjects from my wishlist. If you have troubles finding me other than touristy, I prefer single views with no or only a little texts. Please no multiviews!
This list is about my preference in cards, but can be used for other items as well! Not a must to follow, but in case you are wondering what you should send! ;)
I would love:
I don't like blackcurrant/raspberry/mint flavored tea and I absolutely can't stand hibiscus nor jasmine. Apart from those, I'm open to try any tea!
I can easily buy Nordqvist, Lipton and Twinings, so if you have something else to send me, that would be great!
Some brands I really love are:
If possible, please do not tape the teabags together or on the cards.
Please do not send tea bags without their wrappings - I think it's a bit unhygienic and I will throw them away. Also, please do not send tea bags with damaged/worn wrappings -- those seem like they are very very old and I don't want to drink expired tea. I would never send tea like this to my partner, so I can't even pass on what you sent me.
