About Me

DEAR Friends.. I really love swapbot and also postcrossing and our hobby but its no longer easy to send happymail from turkey after the recent price hikes by the turkish postal service PTT..but I will try to keep even if its only one swap in a month

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

Huhuuuu :))]

My Name is Rabia and I´m 30 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. I DIIIIID :)) and I´m really happy about that. I enjoy living 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 my muhi..

Update: adopted Diva in dec21 ////!!!

Do you have any pets? Tell me something about them? 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.
