About Regndroppar...

I work as a translator and I live in a small town in Southern Finland. I am a language enthusiast who has always been fascinated by how different languages work and express our world. 😊 My PC-name is Swedish and means "rain drops" in English. I am voluntarily child-free, meaning I don't want to have kids of my own. Nevertheless, I am an aunt of three wonderful nephews and two adorable nieces. ❤ I try to make ecological choices in my everyday life because I am worried about the future of our planet. 🌍

My favourite pastime activity is reading and I also read in different languages. My favourite genre is fantasy/scifi and I love to read YA literature to satisfy my inner child. My favourite authors include among others George R.R. Martin, Brian Jacques, Stephanie Garber and Suzanne Collins. My motto is that there is always time for reading! 📚 I am also a tea addict as I am not grown-up enough to have learned to drink coffee (but coffee related cards are welcome too! 😅 They are often so beautiful). A good book with a cup of tea is a treat for me. ☕📚

I guess I am a bit daydreamer because my life is so ordinary. My greatest achievement which I am proud of is my graduation from university in May 2018. 📖🎓 If I had a soul animal, it would be an otter. Definitely. I also love cats (small and big🐱🦁), but I can't unfortunately have a cat of my own because I am allergic. Otherwise I would be a crazy cat-lady! 🐈 I dream of translating a novel into my language.

Any kind of postcards (also odd-shaped cards) are welcome. You can surprise me and send me a card which you like and would love to receive. My Favourite Wall includes cards that I haven't received if you are at a loss for picking a card for me. 😊 If you could enclose some phrase or proverb in your own language in your postcard, that would be great! 🙂

I don't collect postcards per se, but I have a goal to get a postcard with a state name from every US State. It would be nice if you included some funny facts about your state on the card. At moment I am MISSING only CONNECTICUT, DELAWARE, SOUTH DAKOTA. I also like the following card series:
