About Me

DEAR Friends.. I really love swapbot and also postcrossing and our hobby but its no longer possible for us to send happymail from turkey after the recent price hikes by the turkish postal service PTT.. The shipping fee minimum for a postcard was 6,5 tl now the minimum is 18 tl.thats a 300% -400% raise which we cant handle. we are doing our best the let them hear our voice to change it ve have started a petition on change org. I would appreciate if you can sign for us I coudnt ad the link hear but if you message me i can send you the link or you can search " PTT 11 Ekim 2021 zamlarını geri çeksin" on change.org

thank you for helping ❤️❤️❤️❤️

!!PLEASE if possible send your mail unregistered cause otherwise i get charged for it and these make swapping more difficult for me 🌸 thank you !!

!!! I got an message from a swappartner abt asking for the travel period to turkey .coudnt read conpleatly and I dont know how I did but i deleted while reading 😅🤦🏻‍♀️🤦🏻‍♀️!!! So I dont remember the name.. if you are here pls ctc me again 🌸

Huhuuuu :))]

I´m back after a long break. My Name is Rabia and I´m 27 years old. I was born in Germany and i studied pedagogy. Orginally I´m from Turkey and earlier in my profil there was written that one of my biggest Dream is to move to Turkey. Now I DIIIIID :)) and I´m really happy about that. I enjoy life in Turkey.I have adopted 2 cats.Called Barfi and Muhtar (Muhi). I hope one day a dog will also join us. I´m a fan of rottweiler. I knew that i will call one of my pets Barfi long time before. I was inspired my a film called BARFI if you didnt watch the film , you should :))

!!!// I lost my little Barfi march21 due to an operation..trying to overstay with with my muhi.. I was not able to send some swaps on time I think I let every partner know but here i want to apoligize again if i forgot somebody////!!!

Do you have any pets? Tell me something about hthem? It would be very interesting to read :)

As a child I loved to write letters. Sometime we wrote letters with poems and drawn pictures to cousins of friends in Turkey. The Postman was allways Grandpa or Grandma so we got out letters every 3-6 month. But we really loved it.

I realized that I really missed it and while I was searching for new penpals 6-7 years ago I discovered postcrossing and swapbot

I´m not a girl of this century. I wished to be born in another time... long long ago :) I love old things : Letters, Photos, Cameras, .. I thing I love everything with a history..

Old things emotionally affect me.

I love long letters i thing a handwritten letter is very valued.

and I also love photo albums.I really enjoy old pictures.I like to cross stitch but I didnt stitch for a long time ... I learned crocheting and I chrochet amigurumis it´s so joyfull to see a handmade toy in a kids hand or on my bookshelf :)) and i want to learn sewing hopefully one day :D

I love to read... I´m 27 years old and i still can´t say :"this is my favorite book or this is my favorite author". It is difficult for me to make a decision because it's as if I hurt the others if i would choose. :))

i love to loose me in books.. to go in another world and be someone other.. or getting in love with a Romancharacter

I have always imagined that Paradise will be a kind of library.
