About Me

!!! IMPORTANT: I'm moving in September and when mail from your country normally takes more than 4 weeks to Germany, please ask me for my new address! Especially for larger things than business letter size. Postcards and normal letters will be forwarded to my new address.

For newbies (and oldies): Join the Newbie helpers. There you can find helpful information and lots of newbie friendly but safe swaps.

I started studying for my masters degree in addition to my full-time jub, so I will cut down swapping in 2018 and mainly do simple type-2-swaps.



My favourite colours: light blue, turquoise, bright yellow

  • used postage stamps from Japan
  • coloured envelopes, lettersets
  • stickers
  • gel pens with glitter
  • candles, tealights
  • anything from Leonardo esp. in colors turquoise or beige



  • animals, esp. Mongolian gerbils, Dzhungarian dwarf hamsters, big cats, meerkats, koalas
  • cityview postcards esp. singleview postcards with the name of the city on the front side
  • no Christmas cards (except it's a special swap for these)
  • no religious cards, no handmade cards, no ad cards



Likes: herbal & fruit infusions (love passionfruit), rooibos tea (love vanilla)

Please don't send any tea as extra as I have too many at the moment. Except you have this one as I couldn't find it here yet:

Dislikes: plain and flavoured white, green, black tea, chai, chili, pepper, lemon

Comment: Thank you for the wonderful postcard, Andrea! I'm glad you liked Sofia and indeed it's very different. I have been to Austria but not Germany, however many of my friends have or live there. It's very popular among bulgarians to go to Germany for study or work. I plan to visit one day as well :)
