hi! my name is ana and i'm a 30-something year old (usually) living in a quiet fisherman's town in the southwest tip of europe... but often found in other places. i studied computer science and work on postcrossing all day, replying to emails, writing blog posts and generally trying to keep everyone happy. the rest of the time, i spend traveling, making lists, writing posts on my own blog, and taking photos with crappy cameras.
i love the kind of slow exploration that living in other countries allows and so far, i've lived in groningen (NL), shanghai (CN), ljubljana (SI) and berlin (DE) for a few years at a time — i keep fond memories of all these cities of mine. i'm also a big foodie and think about food pretty much all the time... especially eggs! aren't they perfect?
and i cannot resist a good stationery shop, though my stock of postcards, washi tapes, rubber stamps and stickers would probably be enough for 2 lifetimes already... :)
