Hi guys. I am a Swiss pipe smoker working as a teacher.

Ever since I can remember I have been enthusiastic about tobacco, I just love the historical and cultural dimension surrounding our favorite plant!
Furthermore, I like being part of the pipe community and exchanging interesting thoughts with likeminded people.
I am also an avid hunter and think there is nothing better than watching the sun rise out in the woods smoking a nice bowl of baccy and pondering the great questions of human existence.
Lastly, I am also glad to let you know that Wallace Stevens is one of my favorite poets, so this should explain my user name.

If you ever pass through here - feel free to drop me a line. If I can arrange it, I am always happy to meet a fellow pipe smoker, drink a cup of tea or a glass of wine and have a nice discussion. My contact address is frepat92(at)gmail.com.

I am mostly a smoker of straight Virginia tobaccos as well as Latakia-based mixtures.
I love and collect a lot of different pipes but nothing beats the mouthfeel and taste of my favorite one, a slender Upshall.
