About Me

I'm 38 years old and live in Germany with my husband. I'm an archivist in a state archive.

I really love to swap and I put effort into every swap I join. So please do the same. I prefer to receive less things but of good quality.

If you are searching for penpals feel free to write.

Hobbies

I'm interested in almost everything. But of cause I can't do everything at the same time, here are the things I do most of my free time:

  • singing
  • dancing
  • sewing
  • hiking
  • paperworks
  • (online) gaming
  • baking
  • cooking
  • reading
  • meeting friends
  • traveling
  • cosmetics and ...yes, that's enough for the moment.

Favorite Books

It is dufficult to pick out some books and authors because I like so many. I read fantasy, lovestorys, detective storys, adventure storys, historical novels, poetry...I think I would read nearly everything accept of horror and very scary thriller (I can't sleep after reading those)

Authors: Terry Pratchett, Clive Cussler, Jostein Gaarder, J. K. Rowling, Tolkien, Ben Aaronovitch

Books: The elegance of the hedgehog, Theo's odyssey, The lord of the rings, the series of Peter Grand and many many more

what I like

I love ducks. I love them very much. And I love nature. I like teddy bears, and flowers. Colourful things but also simple things. I like it to learn new things and see new things. I like mountains, wild oceans, woods and lakes. But I like cities too. I like modern things but also old things.

Other:

  • sheep
  • hedgehogs
  • candles
  • pigs
  • turtles
  • owls
  • did I mentioend ducks?
  • pens
  • boxes
  • I like all colors except neon colors (for clothes, scarfs, slides or jewellery I prefer blue, turquoise, petrol, purple, dark red, pink, dark green, grey, black and white, no gold please)

what I don't like

There are only a fiew things I really don't like: The combination of alcohol and chocolate, mint, Cadbury Cream Eggs, Turkish Delight, very hot tasting things (like chilli), fruit gums (I like them, but only the German ones like Haribo. But if you think you know a brand I would love than feel free to send it), coffee, gold jewellery, most kawaii things and Hello Kitty. I also don't like it to get very cheap looking things.

Favorite Television

I like series very much but sometimes there is not enough time to watch them. Here are some series i like:

  • Stargate
  • Supernatural
  • Castle
  • Bones
  • Warehouse 13
  • Sherlock
  • Macgyver (I watched it as I was a child)
  • Sliders
  • Doctor Who
  • Buffy
  • NCIS
  • Elementary

tasty things

What is yummy for me:

  • chocolate (every color from dark to white and with nearly everything in it except alcohol, coffee and mint)
  • cheese (oh, I love cheese)
  • cherries
  • granola bars
  • cake
  • cookies
  • vanilla
  • cinnamon
  • nuts (especially peanuts and almonds but all others too)
  • strawberries
  • licorice
  • marzipan
  • ginger bread
  • well, nearly everything sweet (especially those things I can't buy here)
  • tea (I prefer herbal an black tea but green is good too. I also like chai and other spicy tea. I don't like red fruit tea that much, but it depends on the tea.)

Allergies

My stomach can't tolerate coffee and alcohol.

Jewellery I have an allergy to nickel.

Beauty Products I have Rosacea so my facial skin is extremely sensitive. If you want to buy me face cream or face masks please be sure it contains no alcohol, no perfumes and no other irritating things (many plant extracts are irritation too). For the rest of my body everything is ok.

What you can give me as a present (samples):

  • everything with ducks
  • books with short stories (English or German)
  • sticky notes
  • everything from Santoro's Gorjuss

Favorite Music

I like lots of different types of music. Folk, Jazz, Blues, Filmmusic, Musicals, Classic, Metal, Rock etc. Often I don't like the charts that much but not always. It depends on the song.

Comment: Your letter arrived today and I found myself smiling in different parts as I was reading. I truly appreciate the time and effort you put into this letter for me. I’m touched that you converted the recipe measurements and looked up English words to double check. Your thoughtfulness shines through with this swap. I’d like to write back if you would enjoy that as well. Let me know if you’d like a letter from me. All the best— Casey
Response: I'm glad you liked my letter. It would be great if you write back!

Comment: Danke!!! I have received your letter,thank you! no worries about the length. I actually thought of 2 sides of a page(2 Seiten nicht 2 Briefbogen auf beide Seiten),so I just wrote a message to my other partner to ask about the length. i didn't write 4 sides. next time we have to ask in the swap directly :P *ooops* .

Comment: Viel Glück für alle deine Vorsätze. Ich brauche auch mehr Entspannung im neuen Jahr und würde gerne was neues ausprobieren, also vielleicht werde ich auch mal beginnen zu meditieren :)! Meine Karten lege ich mir übrigens auch einmal die Woche mindestens - aus den gleichen Gründen wie du. :) Schönes Jahr 2017!

I'm so excited about sending your package for "make me a lovely wellness day"! I have had so much fun putting it together! It's all ready to go, but won't leave the post office until Tuesday as it is a long weekend here this weekend! I hadn't realised that until someone told me at work on Friday! I have added some extras to make up for it :) i
