26/2/2008: IMPORTANT INFORMATION
Sadly I am still taking a break, since I finally moved into my own apartment and need to see how things go moneywise. But if all goes well, I should finally be getting back to it!
I'll post new information once I can swap again.
Thanks for your interest everyone, I'll be back for sure!
A-ha! Yes, this is another one of the reasons why I finally managed to set up my new blog.
Finding out about this fantastic idea was one of those typical internet follow-interesting-looking-links thingies (the chain goes somewhat like Friends in forum-NaNoWriMo-Candyblog-Giant Jeans Parlour-Gimme Your Stuff).
So, here I am, sitting at my computer in dear old Austria, which abounds in things that I don't find highly interesting but others well might, so IF there is anyone interested in funky Austrian stuff, here I am.
I can send practically anything that will fit into a carryable (for me) package. For example:
- Chocolate and sweets (we have a more or less local chocolate manufaturer who does VERY interesting things with his choclate fillings, for example)
- Fantastic tourist t-shirts with witty prints like "There are no kangaroos in Austria", and other touristy stuff
- Craft items, from fabrics to buttons to wool to glass beads
- Magazines, books, newspapers
- possibly clothing items like socks and t-shirts
- cosmetics stuff (who knows, maybe there are Americans out there who crave glittery nail polish?)
- whatever else people think they could possibly want from Austria; you name it, I try to find it!
What would I like to get in return? Gee, I guess it depends on where you're from. I'd love anything Australian and Japanese because those are countries I would love to visit but never have yet, and they're sooo far away. I'd also like American sweets, because I read about them so much and can only get very few of them here.
I also love pretty fabrics, t-shirts, interesting (not necessarily expensive) necklaces or bracelets (I used to love rings but I don't really like wearing them anymore), magazines, books, basically anything to read or at least with pretty pictures to look at, and well...
Basically, whatever I receive* will feel like Christmas anyway, because I love getting packages and letters. So, I guess the best thing to do if you would like to swap with me would be to tell me what you want and what you would like to send and wait for my excited "Yay!" answer.
I'm also absolutely up for surprise swaps, but will give no guarantee as to your satisfaction with my choices. ;)

Oh, and I should probably add, despite the current rather stark look of this blog, I am neither a goth nor depressed nor a teen; I just like the way it looks very simple and clean this way. I might change the colours in a while, but for now, bear with me.
*With the possible exemption of live spiders, dead kittens, and other gruesome stuff like that.
UPDATE (29/12/06): During October and November I received many many new requests, and I'm still at work trying to organize them. Of course, I'm still open to new requests, but it will simply take a while until I get around to them. Just to let you know, so you won't think I have forgotten or anything if you don't hear from me for a while!
