BC in 2024

After a hiatus of about two years I got back to BC in 2021. I have greatly enjoyed taking part in various rings, rays, games and challenges in the past and I am looking forward to staying active this year. I read in English and German and I like to discover new material through different channels.

One challenge I thoroughly enjoyed for a number of years is the 666 challenge, as it managed to broaden my horizon on different levels and got me out of my (cultural) comfort zone.

To get a little extra motivation in 2024 I decided to join efells Lesechallenge 2024 . I almost finished the complete challenge in 2023 and I'd love to complete the whole thing this year.

~*~ for secret santas and other Wichtel :) ~*~

My family and I like to take part in a few exchange games throughout the year. We appreciate any kind thought. This year I've been asked to include some of my preferences, so our partners job is a bit easier. So here goes:

I like sweets and chocolate, tea, tea towels and mugs. My partner and I love motorcycles and travelling. I have two young kids (6 & 8) who love to try sweets from other countries, any kind of stickers and enjoy all kinds of stories.


~*~ 666 Challenge (69 states read so far) ~*~
