About Me

I am a 30-something Czech girl living in the beautiful city of Brno in the heart of Moravia, the winemaking region of the Czech Republic. I work as a language teacher and I am doing a PhD in linguistics at the local university, which also involves lecturing.

Here are some of the things I am really into: theatre, opera, art, books, movies (yeah... the independent and obscure ones, mostly), travel (Scotland! Scotland! Scotland!), hiking and camping, cats, comics, linguistics, psychology, cooking, dancing, working in my parents' orchard and vineyeard, and making preserves (no time for many of these activities lately as I really need to finish the dissertation). And of course swapping and penpalling!

I enjoy learning languages and exploring other people's cultures (next to Czech and English I also speak Russian and Croatian, so feel free to use these languages with me as well).

I generally am a very reliable person and flaking is not my thing! Please let me know if you don't receive stuff from me in time before you give me 1, the international mail system is not as reliable as I am. I always resend should a swap get lost.

Favorite Crafts

cross-stitch, card making, silk-painting, cooking (does this count as a craft? especially deserts), fruit preserving (will love to swap recipes)

would like to do more of: sewing, ATCs, coloring

Favorite Books

I studied Slavonic languages and literatures at the uni and so I have read plenty of books by various Slavonic authors (and many are still on my "to read" list). My favourite writers include Dostoyevsky, Tolstoy, Bulgakov, Akhmatova, Khlebnikov, Sienkiewicz, and Havel. I am a big sci-fi fan, I especially like short stories. I also read a lot of poetry (love Pat Ingoldsby), graphic novels, modern British and American lit, magical realism, historical novels. I love anthologies of short stories and poetry. I collect cookbooks :o)

Favorite Music

Anything singable, hummable or danceable. Musicals. Classical music as well. Not a great fan of hip hop.

Comment: Thanks for the awesome “ugly” postcard! I think you might be right, the photographer could have definitely captured the view better. But at least it still looks nice. I also have to give an extra heart because I especially loved the beautiful stamps you used. Thank you so much!
Response: LOL! Thank you for the heart for the stamps!

Hi M, I mailed a naked written postcard today and will mail the elephant postcards in an envelope tomorrow. It's all ready and I hope you receive them both.

Thank you so much for the wonderful package received today Magda - it was definitely worth waiting for. I really appreciate the translations too it's added a wonderful dimension to the calendars that I'll keep for the entire year and possibly even beyond 2017 as it's very special- will pop a postcard in the mail for you just because you went to so much trouble. Big hug, Mandy
