  • Anything nice or useful in black or blue with the letter S on it (my boyfriend's name is Spencer)
  • CD's you recommend me, something unusual, different, or something you think I will like (2nd hand is fine but without scratches)
  • Chocolate (milk or white) and candies; love to try anything new.
  • City maps / subway maps / touristy
  • Interesting books/magazines about your country (in English please)
  • Pug related stuff!!!
  • easy and quick food recipes in English
  • Rammstein related stuff (no magazine clippings or posters please but all kind of acessories are welcome!)
  • Souvenir pens (no pencils please)
  • Smoking gear (any nice / artsy / touristic lighters, rolling papers, or pocket ashtrays, you make me very very happy!)

  • Travelguides (written in English please; 2nd hands is fine)
  • Vintage (esp. bracelets, necklaces, handbags, beautybags, totebags, scarfs, and so on and so on. If needed, please ask my size)


Black, cognac brown, rusty brown, mustard yellow, dark forest green and red are my favorites.

For in my house I like red and silver/metal colored thingies.

DISLIKES: I don't like beige and I also don't like things with lots of glitter on it. Gold is okay but I'm more a silver person. Also no rhinestones please, no fake diamonds, no 'bling bling' at all, since I simply don't like it.

Food, candy, chocolate, snacks

I really like: Snacks, candy and chocolate especially from your country, chocolate (milk, white, 'weird tastes', with nuts, with fruits, with alcohol, with mint), something you really recommend me, things with strawberry or lemon flavour, Japanese candies (those sticks in different flavours, and I loooove the Milky candy), chocolate from Germany, Switzerland, Austria and Belgium, cookies, cookies with chocolate, crisps, anything with nuts, chocolate with sea salt. Surprise me with something you'd recommend me. I'm willing to try (almost) anything.

DISLIKES: I don't like: ginger. Not at all. Also the green tea / matcha thing is something I don't like.

Hot beverages


I'm a big lover of coffee, latte machiato, cappuchino, hot chocolate, tea, chai tea, and coffee with special flavours. I'd love to try all kind of coffees and hot chocolates from all over the world. Every taste is welcome, also weird ones. I'm already excited yet!

Also those special sirups to put in the coffee are welcome. I'd like to try something new! I also love anything Starbucks.


When it comes to tea, I especially like Rooibos and English Breakfast. Autumn teas and winter teas are lovely; I like it spicy (cinnamon and other spices). Please don't send me Pickwick tea because that's available on every corner of the street here :) Feel free to send me loose tea as well (but be sure you pack it very well).

DISLIKES: I don't like: Ginger, tea with 'smokey' flavours, blueberries, blackberries, tea with a sour flavour (if it's sour, I probably don't like it), jasmine, lavender tea.


My postcards preferences are:

  • #1 - Pugs ❤️ I love them and I collect pug-postcards :-)
  • #2 - Subway maps (I already have: London, Munich, Hamburg, Berlin, Paris, Moscow, St. Petersburg, Vienna)
  • #3 - Books, bookstores, reading people, and so on.
  • #4 - Touristic views, beaches, national parks
  • #5 - Typewriters, coffee, tea, brushes, rainbows, staircases, cats in windows, black and white cards, owls, photo camera's, pencils, and so on
  • #6 - Shopping streets / markets / festivals
  • #7 - Motivational or spiritual quotes
  • #8 - (ad)cards from bars, café's, clubs, hotels

Last but not least...

People should treat other people as they wish to be treated themselves; also on Swapbot ;-) I'm absolutely not a flaker. If you haven't received something from me, then please let me know, so I can (try to) fix it.

I never rate 1 or 3 without sending a message first. I hope you will do the same. I also rate my swaps as soon as I receive them.

Comment: Hi Colinde, I received your postcard today on Monday the 15th of January. And ha ha, there is actually a postmark PERFECTLY put near the broom(?) from the snowman, making me think it was a part of the postcard. It's as though the snowman is making an expression and maybe even smoking and the broom kind of is emitting some kind of either brush stroke or smoke effect. It's amusing and humorous for me. They somehow got the postmark so perfect (isn't a full circle and perfectly ends before the snowman). I'll probably eventually send you a photo once I get to taking the photos of my January mail later on. Oh, and thanks for the mail! ~Kiyasu
