About Isabella...

🌿 Status: inactive, but I pop in to see the beautiful postcards that are travelling around the world 🌿

Hi everyone! 😊
I'm Isabella and I’m Italian 🇮🇹

🌙 About my land

I live in Sardinia, Italian region and second largest island in the Mediterranean Sea.

David Herbert Lawrence in his book “Sea and Sardinia” wrote:
"Sardinia is something else.
Enchanting spaces and distances to travel - nothing finished, nothing final. It is like freedom itself.
Room - give me room - give me room for my spirit."

I highly suggest you see this beautiful video, in less than 3 minutes you can see the sense of freedom described by Lawrence -

🌙 About me

I'm a student and I study Foreign Languages and Communication at the University of Cagliari. 
I love learning about new cultures and habits and I strongly believe in the benefits of cultural exchange.
In a time when way too many people think it's acceptable to build walls, I do my best to build bridges instead, and Postcrossing helps me to do so.

🌙 I have a large variety of interests, the main ones are:

~ Books 📚
I love reading both prose and poetry. My favourite books are Dracula, The sorrows of young Werther and Dialogues with Leucò (the last one is by the italian author Cesare Pavese)
~ Art 🖌
Mucha, Claude, Turner, Cole, Parrish, Corot, Alma-Tadema, Waterhouse and Pre-Raphaelites in general are among my favourites.
~ Music 🎼
I'm into "old but gold" artists like the Beatles, Queen, Bowie, Cohen and Simon&Garfunkel.
I love classical music and opera too!
~ Astronomy 🔭🌟
I am an astrophile (it means “A lover of the stars; a person who is interested in astronomy as an amateur or non-expert") and I enjoy spending nights with my telescope.
I follow space missions and ISS (International Space Station) expeditions.   
~ Nature 🌸
I love nature in every season and I am a gardening enthusiast.
"If you want to be happy for a short time, get drunk;
happy for a long time, fall in love;
happy forever, take up gardening." 🌿

🌙 I love postcards with:

~ Natural views and features of your country (landscapes, forests, mountains, waterfalls, lakes etc.)
~ Anything else related to your country (history, culture, tradition etc.)
~ Typical houses, castles, architecture details
~ Watercolours
~ Inge Löök illustrations (I have No. 4, 8, 10, 11, 29, 32, 42, 46, 58, 116)

🌙 If you don't have a postcard that meets my interests or the themes that I love don't worry!! 😊

🌙 Don't know what to write? Answer this: You can choose an historical figure and have them truthfully answer one question. Who would you choose and what is the question?

🌙 Please, just make sure the postcard is sent from the country that it represents 😊

🌙 I LOVE stamps!

Thank you for the time you're spending to send me a postcard 😊📮
