michelle_2012(or Catherine) is a member in France . She has been a member for over 7 years (2,589 days).
My name is Catherine (Катя in Russian, my native language), I am originally from Russia, but the last 8 years I've been living in the region Brittany (France), the mysterious land of ancient celtic legends and subtle everyday magic (it actually works sometimes, believe it or not...).
Дорогие русскоговорящие посткроссеры, я буду очень рада получить открытку на русском языке!
Ich verstehe Deutsch und würde gerne eine Karte auf Deutsch bekommen :)
Being excited about the new destination is the most wonderful and inspiring feeling for me. I love travelling and consider the life as a great adventure.
I have recently defended a PhD in management in the University of Rennes.
I am an art-lover and enjoy painting and drawing pastels.
My favourite writer is Antoine de Saint-Exupéry.
Although that's not quite realistic right now, I dream of going for adventures on the board of a sailing boat one day.
I prefer to receive cards handwritten, without envelopes (and with nice stamps if that's not too much trouble to you).
Please tell me something about you or the place where you live. Here's some ideas :
- Tell me a local legend, I'm very curious about legends of other places!
- Tell me sth about you (an unexpected decision that you did not regret, your passion, your dream...)
- Write your favourite poem (in a language I understand)
- Share your favourite recepy so I can cook it or taste it when I visit your country.
- If I happen to visit the place where you live, what could you advise me to see or experience (sth the tourist guides do not tell about)?
Feel free to send me the card you like, being surprised is the best part of postcrossing!
However, if you prefer to match the card theme to the receiver's preferences (like I do :)), here's some of my favourite themes:
- Legends / magical creatures / mysteries of your region !
- Your national holidays of the current season;
- Traditional dishes of your region, esp. with RECEPIES;
- SAILING, ships, boats, sea ports,
- FLYING, paragliding, airplanes;
- MAPS and flags;
- Cards showing something special about your life, your hobbies, things you like, etc.; nice hand-made cards are welcome;
- WILD ANIMALS OR BIRDS in natural environment, esp. EAGLES, STORKS, OTTERS & SQUIRRELS
- SNOWY LANDSCAPES,
- ART, esp. paintings or PASTELS by the artists of your country (cards and/or stamps);
- Beautiful book illustrations (esp. Beatrix Potter, Harry Potter, Moomins, Totoro);
- Painted landscapes or cityscapes;
- POLAND: Jacek Yerka;
- РОССИЯ: ЗИМА, чаепитие и САМОВАРЫ,
Thank you in advance for the card that you will choose for me!
