My name is Ekaterina. I'm from Syktyvkar - it's on the north-west of Russia. I'm working as a programmer in state organization. But now I'm in home with my son Mihail born 21st February 2015 (he also has his own postcrossing profile https://www.postcrossing.com/user/mihlag). So my life now is the life of inexperienced young mother and I like it :)
I can't imagine my life without books. I like to read detective stories, novels, modern literature. My favourite writer now is Stephen King. When I have some free time I’m in for cross-stitching and watching science-fiction and TV series. Playing videogames (especially quests) is my other passion. Now Civilization V is my favourite one.
I like cats: I have three cats at home and want to have much more but my husband always says I'm crazy :) Besides I'm a member of our local Homeless Cat Rescue organization. We try to treat, sterilize and find new home for abandoned cats in our town.
I enjoy travelling. I've been in many European countries (Finland, Sweden, Denmark, Germany, Franсe, Italy, Poland, Netherlands, Ukraine, Czech Republic) and my dream is visiting other continents. I like visiting museums, castles, sights and interesting places when I travel, as well as eating and visiting local markets of all sorts. What is worth to see in our country or town? It's always interesting to learn about other countries, their traditions, history, national costumes. That's why I love Postcrossing!
It doesn't matter what type of card do you post, I'll like everything! But please write some words. If you don't know what to write, tell me something about yourself (hobbies, favourite books, pets etc.) or tell what you have been doing recently. Or 5-10 random facts about you, why not? It's always interesting to learn about your country, town or traditions. If you can't think of anything, instead of just writing 'happy postcrossing', draw me a picture :-)
You can also cut out a piece of cardboard from your favorite food, cereal, sweets box etc, the size of a postcard and send it...I love surprises!
I've studied in Sweden for one year, so I know a little Swedish. You can write on it, but please use simple constructions and write clear. Tack så mycket! I love Scandinavia and it's always joyfully to receive something connecting with it.
