Hey my name is Rahel, I'm 28 years old and I'm from Switzerland. I'm a veterinarian and right now I'm writing my dissertation. As often as possible I go for a walk with shelter dogs. I've shared my home with two beautiful cats named Fynn and Fee, but for my dissertation I had to move to another city in a small apartment. So I had to leave them in my parents home. I miss them very much, but I can see them once a week. I practice "Clickertraining" with them. That's a way to train animals. Here you can see a video of Fynn: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FgoRdxWrweA
Update July 2016: Our gorgeous Fee died. I had to put her to sleep. She was only 6 years old =(
In summer 2012 I was in Namibia for two weeks. There I worked in a wildlife center as a volunteer with wild and tame cheetahs, lions, leopards, caracals, baboons and a lot more african animals. So you can see, I love animals =)
In september 2014 my godchild named Finnja was born and in April 2015 my niece named Sila. They're just too cute <3
In my freetime I was playing volleyball, but after more then 10 years I had to quit, as I have no time left. I love to watch movies, especially horror movies. And when I'm working for my dissertation, I'm listing to Sigur Ros. That just relaxes me =) I'm a big fan of the FC Basel and I visit every game.
In 2018 I lived in Sydney for half a year for my PhD. It was a wonderful time.
PLEASE don't write just "Happy Postcrossing"!
I LIKE postcards with:
- animals (perhaps animals from your country?)
- food (esp. cupcakes & sweets)
- beautiful landscape
- beaches and islands
- light houses
- water (ocean, waterfall, river and so on)
- northern lights
- black and white (watch this: http://www.gutrath.com/Postkarten-alle/s/w:::1_5.html?XTCsid=f71ad4ebb8d34b2fe2a7373c645b618e )
- Inga Paltser
- Irina Garmashova
- Any card of my favorites (as long as I haven't it received already)
Postcrossers from BELARUS: I'm collecting "Fauna of Belarus" cards. But please check which cards I've already received.
Postcrossers from SINGAPORE: Please DON`T send me this card:
I do have it already three times!
When you are going to send a postcard to me look at this site www.sendkidstheworld.com and also send a card to one of the sick children to brighten their day.
I also hope you can copy this website on your profile to let more people know this!
Thank you so much for doing this.
