Hello dear postcrosser!
My name is Elina. I'm a youth and leisure instructor and I also study at the university of Eastern Finland. I live with my boyfriend. My hobbies are mostly scouting, geocaching and of course postcrossing.
I've started to learn Spanish and Russian last autumn so I'd love to practice those with you. Write me in Spanish or Russian and I'll learn! At this moment I know only very basic words. (Also cards written in German, French, Swedish and Estonian are very welcome!)
You can see my received cards from http://picasaweb.google.com/elihuu
