v_vicky(or Vicky) is a member from Greece . She has been a member for over 3 years (1273 days).
my name is Vicky and I live in Athens,capital of Greece.
I have 3 adorable dogs (Mickey, Mara and Boubou) which are all my life! :)
My big love is photography. It's really a passion for me. That's why I love travelling. I can't wait to travel to Ireland, Iceland, Scotland, Finland, Norway, Egypt, France, New Zealand and Italy (Florence).
A sample of my photos you can find here (also available as postcards)
My other interests is art,music,cooking,movies,reading books,collecting cards,magnets and snowglobes with views of places,stamps..
I'd love to go to museums and galleries. I also reading many books about art,photography,biographies and any other book inspires me.
Cooking is very special to me also..Very often I like to experiment with new flavors and smells..I think that, from the alchemy of taste you can learn many things about the other cultures.
The music is very important to me and my family. We have a family business who designs and manufactures the most famous perhaps greek musical instrument called "bouzouki".
So I don't think I could live without music. I hear all types depending on the mood. However, more greek, jazz, blues, soundtracks, fado and I love the sound of saxophone!
Well, enough about me now :)
About the postcards. I collected always many kind of cards..But this site I found it from a new friend, Marianne! (Thank you!) :)
I hope I "meet" many of you out there, inside from your cards..that's why i would like you to include in the card something from you..a thought..a favourite quote..your best recipe..or some lines from your favourite poem..a travel tip..or anything you like..(and the date too) :) :) And because I'm soo romantic i would like to see in the card the word "I love you" in your own language!!
