Greetings to all!
I'm Ischa and I am currently revising my PhD at the Classics department of King's College London (while living in beautiful Bavaria). My main interest is ancient Greek religion, as such my research is focused on the cult of the god Apollo. In the meantime I'm also studying to get my TEFL (Teaching English as a Foreign Language) certificate.
I have a lovely dog named Rocco. Unfortunately, about two years ago, I had to say goodbye to my beloved dog Zola. She was with us for fifteen years. I miss her more than anything.
My biggest 'hobby' is definitely travelling. I want to have visited thirty countries by the time I'm 30 years old! Other hobbies of mine are jogging, watching sumo, watching anime and films, reading (especially fantasy books), listening to (punk) rock music, baking, and visiting museums and castles.
Send me any card you'd like =) By all means, surprise me (but please no spiders, nudity or military).
If you're not sure about what to send, a view card of your country or hometown would definitely make my day!

I'm currently learning Japanese and would love to receive cards written in Hiragana and Katakana (or Furigana)!
I'm very much interested in direct swaps. Just drop me a message! I'm also interested in becoming penpals with females who have some similar interests^^
