Tshirts for all in California/Austria Swap
Swapper1: Babs California, USA
Swapper2: Barbara Austria, Europe
Austria to California
When Barbara contacted me back in August for a swap, I just couldn't resist. I so rarely meet someone with my name that I just had to agree. After over a month of anticipation, Barbara's package finally arrived from Austria today!
Barbara sent all sorts of Austrian fun: a children's book, pamphlets about Graz, souvineers from Graz, a cute tee from Zara, and Austrian candies. I especially liked how she wrote little notes to explain all the items she sent. (I really appreciated the note attached to the book, telling me about the story line!) I also really liked the pamphlets about Graz she sent, I haven't had a chance to read them, but and looking forward to it as I love learning about new places.
THANK YOU, Barbara! I'm so glad we swapped. I've also enjoyed the emails we've been trading in the interim. Keep me posted on how the rock climbing goes! I hope you enjoy it as much as I do. =)
California to Austria
This was my first swap ever - and it was fantastic! I contacted Babs because we share our first name - and it was so amazing to receive this tightly packed envelope from California! Babs sent fabric, sweets, a t-shirt, a postcard and a little turtle charm - I love everything!
Among the sweets there was this one package of Pocky. Now, I read about Pocky a lot recently and I was so excited! Nevertheless, I managed to keep the box close for *one whole month* and then a bit, just to get a good picture for your interest! And actually, I decided on this little photo series. Now, three things I need to mention - my hair looks terrible because I came home from a sports class and had these pictures taken. The second thing, sorry about the bad lighting - my equally tired brother took the pictures after tired me switched off the flash for some reason. Third, my maybe unenthusiastic expression has nothing to do with Pocky...I'm just dead tired right now. Pocky is delicious! I loved it, my brother loved it! I will always happily receive Pocky donations from everyone!
Thanks Babs, it was so great to receive this package! :D
