About Me

Note on postal travelling times:

International mail seems to be a bit slow during the pandemic times. So, please expect my mail to travel up to a month, especially if it needs to go to another continent. Thank you for your understanding!

Personal Info:

Hi everyone! My name is Amelie. I am a person in her early 30's who lives in the West of Germany. I graduated from uni with a master's degree in hydrology in spring 2022. I currently work in a studies related field.

For relaxation I enjoy sending postcards to friends and family as well as to strangers. When sending mail I enjoy to decorate them with washi tape and stickers.

Besides postcards, I enjoy penpalling, collecting used stamps, exchanging friendship booklets and sheets, listening to music and reading as well as cooking and exploring new places. Due to the pandemic I have been mostly homebound the past 2 years, though. In my spare time I am learning Lithuanian and Korean. At the moment I am fluent in German and English and learned Latin in high school (due to translating from Latin to German, I only have an intermediate reading comprehension). Besides that I understand basic Spanish and Portuguese.

Besides swap-bot.com, I am a member of bookcrossing and postcrossing (Tera_Ecau on both sites).

Favorite Music

  • Klezmer
  • Rock Music (f. e. The John Butler Trio, Santiano)
  • World Music
  • (Pagan) Folk (Faun, Melnitza)

Favorite Books

  • "The invisible Library" series by Genevieve Cogman
  • "Flavia de Luce" series by Alan Bradley
  • thrillers by Monika Feth
  • "Six of Crows" by Leigh Bardugo

Favorite Television

  • I quite like sketch-comedies like "Goodness Gracious Me" and "Little Britain".

  • Sitcoms: "Alf" & "The Nanny" (yes, i am a bit oldfashioned)

  • As of documentaries, I happen to look what Arte (a French-German TV broadcaster) tends to upload to youtube. Apart from that I like the report "Mittendrin - Flughafen Frankfurt" (a documentary series on Frankfurt International Airport, broadcasted by Hesse Broadcasting).

Random Likes & Dislikes

I am NOT into anything too political or religious motifs in postcards or similar mail.

A few random things: - pictures/photos by Anne Geddes (and similar); - any sort of discrimination; - the flavours of coffee and liquorice

Comment: Thank you for the lovely lighthouse postcard! I appreciate all the info you provided about it in the message. A car-free island sounds like a dream, I can imagine it must be a very relaxing place! Love the little stickers and the stamps you used as well. Hope to swap with you again someday :)
