About Me

I am Jana, a Czech lady living, dreaming, weeping and laughing... in the Czech Republic, Europe.

About Swapping

What I like most about swapping is the personal touch between swappers - people who have never met before. It is a pleasure to check my mail box... and what I find brings often a big smile to my face! With the same passion I choose what to send to my partner! I enjoy both parts of the game!

I do not want to take part in too many swaps at one time because I want to keep control.

I usually rate received items immediately after I get them.

I ALWAYS send swaps. If you ever do not get something from me, please contact me, I will resend.

About Postcards

I like postcards. I am an active postcrossing member.

I prefer postcards written and sent "naked", but I also like postcards sent in an envelope. I always appreciate beautiful stamps!

My favourite postcards are those showing beauties of the Earth: mountains, islands, lakes, rivers, waterfalls, trees, wild flowers and wild animals. Cards from the national parks are more than welcome! I also like map cards and cards of the places you like and recommend to visit :-)

I will be very happy if I get postcards with Japanese or Chinese calligraphy, postcards with the pictures of The Little Prince, with drawings by Cicely Mary Barker or those by Marjolein Bastin.

About Stamps

I like nice stamps very much. I collect stamps with bears, with butterflies and with squirrels :) I also collect stamps with laughing and smiling people because laughter and smile are the most precious things in this world.

What I Like to Do

Tai-chi, hiking in the mountains, walking anywhere in nature, city walking, biking, taking photographs, drawing, sewing, reading...

About Animals and Flowers

I love wild animals and wild flowers.

My favourite animals are squirrels, bears (though I do not desire to meet them too close) and butterflies (I love to chase them with my camera).

My favourite flowers are forget-me-nots and gentians. I am always happy to find new snowdrops early in spring and I love meadows of summer plants. I love poppies! I also love trees in blossom... or autumn colourful trees... or just green trees.

About Books

I like reading very much and I read almost everything... children fairy-tales or classical novels, sci-fi as well as poetry or biographies... and I read almost everywhere... at home, in train, at the doctor's waiting room... It is passion though with my eyes getting older I do not read as much as I used to...

As the English language is my hobby I love reading books by English and American authors in English.

About Colours

My favourite colours are blue, navy blue, sky blue, green, orange, white and black, red, purple, and blue. I have my bedroom painted in banana yellow and so I should also add banana yellow :). Well, I like colours :D

Comment: Hello Jana! I finally got your pen pal letter! Oh my goodness was I excited :D It took forever to get here, mostly because it was delivered to the wrong address (you wrote the address correctly, it was just delivered to an incorrect address) and sat on someone's desk until they decided to redeliver it! But it got here and that is what is important. I so enjoyed reading your letter and am excited to write you back. So expect a reply letter soonish (seeing as how international mail likes to take a lot of time to traverse the ocean!) Also, thank you for the cutest squirrel stickers!
Response: Oh, thank you so much for the message! I am happy my letter reached you :-)... looking forward to hearing from you!

Comment: Hi Jana, thank you for the cutest 'kissing' squirrels! We do have lots of squirrels here. We enjoy watching them play in our yard. The other day when we walked outside there were two squirrels racing across the yard, one chasing the other and barking. So funny!
Response: Thanks for telling me about your squirrels! And thanks for the heart!
