Olá malta! [Hello guys, in Portuguese!]
I'm Ana, a 19-year-old girl from Portugal. I participated in postcrossing for a few years and then I stopped but now I decided to start again. Why? Actually it is kind of a funny story: I was cleaning my home library and in the middle of some old books I found my big collection of postcards. I passed the following two hours staring at postcards, I was enchanted by the pictures and delighted because I actually recognized some of the places thanks to travel a little bit in the last few years. Since I am in vacations from college ( I just finished my first year in Medical School - Faculdade de Medicina do Porto) - I decided to resume this fantastic hobby, mainly because I am a dreamer, I love to travel and meet new people and new cultures and places and I can't help imagining my future travels! :)
My passions, besides traveling and Medicine, also includes music and reading. I am crazy about music and I truly believe that life without music wouldn't be as beautiful and festive as it should be. My favourite bands are Bon Jovi, Aerosmith, The Rolling Stones (I saw them alive in Rock in Rio Lisboa in May), Train, Maroon 5, Xutos e Pontapés (Portuguese rock) and Expensive Soul (a Portuguese band with a different and original style). I love also listening to Carlos Santana, Bryan Adams, Bruce Springsteen and Rod Stweart. Every day I sing and dance, although I am terrible doing any of these things! ;)
In my free time, I like to watch some movies and series, but recently I haven't had much time for that. I used to watch Gossip Girl (it was unbelievable when I went to NewYork last year after passing part of my adolescence watching the characters and setting of the series), House, Bones, Knight Rider, Hannibal, How I met your mother, The Simpsons, Dirty Dancing Havana Nights, anything starring Edward Norton, Johnny Deep or Leonardo Dicaprio (please, give those men an Oscar!) ;)
As you may notice by this time, I kind of love to talk too! :) I haven't been in many countries out of Europe besides Mexico, EUA (New York City), Canada (Montreal), Palestine/Israel and Jordan (Amman) but I visited some cities in Europe and I really think the "old continent" is charming. My favourite country? That's easy and not suspicious at all: Portugal! ;) Trust me, it's a beautiful country, with nice people, always happy to receive you. :) My dream destinations are the same as when I was ten: Cuba. Australia and Egypt. Dreaming, dreaming... :) In August I am coming with my family to Lisbon for a few days to revisit the capital city and then we are going to Côte d'Azur.
Actually, I would love to visit all the countries in the world! So, I love to receive postcards from everywhere!
Every postcards are welcomed! I would love it if you wrote about something you do or love and some words in your own language (with translation please!) Or, if you don't know what to write, you may draw. Feel free to surprise me!
Happy Postcrossing! :
