I'm architect and Geometry teacher! I live in a small town near Lisboa (Lisbon), the capital city.
I learned how to ride a bicycle when I was 30 y.o (2010) for using it as a daily vehicle. And that's the way it is! So now I'm interested in everything that relates to urban cycling and bicycles.
The farest I've been away from Portugal was Barcelona, Spain (shame!!), then Postcrossing has been amazing to show me the world! ;)
I collect all received postcards, all kind and all subject.
My favourites are about:
. ARCHITECTURE (buildings, city views, urban landscape),
. ART (painting, sculpture, art nouveau posters, Pop Art, vintage pin-up girls),
. MUSIC/CINEMA (well known actors/bands/singers/movies, musical instruments, old movies posters),
. TYPICAL (clothing/costumes, housing, gastronomy, markets, native people, panda bears ),
. BICYCLES ( and maybe you can tell me about the conditions for the daily use of the bicycle in your city).
I'm in Postcrossing since 2005. :-D
Times to times, I interrupt my postcrossing activity because: a) have no money; b) have no space to keep postcard's boxes. ;-)
