About Jorun...

I have been a teacher for 30 years, and now I am retired.
I enjoy meeting people from different countries, so I have done home exchange (Intervac) since 2000, and I have hosted people through Couchsurfing since 2008.

I love to travel, and we have done that many times using home exchange in Europe, Africa, America and Asia. These days we are into housesitting, and we just love the concept: We get to stay for free in people`s home while the owners are away, in exchange for us taking care of pets, watering flowers and bringing in the mail. So far we have been to fourteen different countries through housesitting and house exchange.

About cards:
I have a neighbour with Downs syndrom who is an avid collector of postcards with church motives. I would love to receive such cards and with the name of that particular church either on the front or on the back of the card. (Please translate if it is written in Russian letters.) That way you and I can both contribute to a collection that means so much to this man.

I would also enjoy these motives:
CARDS WITH HORSES. I collect them for a friend.
LIGHTHOUSES. (A motif I collect for someone else.)
BIRDS. (Also a motif I collect for someone else. They have to be blank and sent in an envelope.
CRUISE SHIPS
Cats or dogs drawn by artists; I like other animals too
Inge Löök
Maps of cities or countries
I appreciate getting cards in an envelope, as so many get damaged in the mail.

I do not normally do private swaps, but I have many cards with Norwegian churches, vintage Christmas cards, black and white landscapes, with snow and with waterfalls, so if you want some and can send me cards with horses, birds or a lighthouse in return, that would be great!

I enjoy learning something about you, your country or the motif of the card.
I enjoy it if you put nice stamps on the envelope, but I do not collect! (I am not fond of tape and stickers, so save them for others who are.)

If you happen to come to Oslo, you may send me a message, and if I am available, I would like to invite you over for a cup of tea and a chat.
