Ciao! My name is Michele (with one L, no accents or anything else; CH=K, so the correct spelling is Микеле in Russian, Мікеле in Ukrainian or Belarusian) and I am an Italian MAN. My name is Italian for Mike, Mich(a)el, Miguel, etc.
Please, write me in your mother tongue (including German and Dutch!) or a language you know, since I have always enjoyed learning languages.
Please read the list in the "Languages" field above. I also know Latin, Ancient Greek, Esperanto, and a bit of Swedish, Norwegian, Breton, Czech, Slovene, Croatian, Serbian, Bulgarian, Greek, Finnish. I am studying Arabic now. Feel free to suggest a language I should study in the future.
I come from Rovigo, near Venice, Italy, but now I'm living in Brittany, the Celtic land in NW France.
My hobbies are travelling, taking photos (follow me on instagram @thewanderingeuroglot), reading, listening to music, riding my e-bike, and more.
I love exploring new cities and countries. I am an avid museum and church visitor, as well as a Christian believer.
I am on Postcrossing to meet new people, either virtually or in real life. I started attending Postcrossing meetups in 2017 and I've already been to several more around Europe. I encourage you to look at this page https://www.postcrossing.com/events/meetups and join a meetup near you (or far away...).
Therefore, the back of your postcard is more valuable to me than its front. Please write more than just "Greetings from...": tell me about yourself, your daily life, hobbies, dreams, or about your favourite book, music, film, travel destination, and so on. You are welcome to decorate or draw on your card.
I am not very picky. A normal view-card of your city/area/country and their monuments, nature or culture, will always be appreciated.
I also like postcards about:
- local people
- traditional recipes
- cultural festivals
- religious ceremonies
- beautiful illustrations
- Postcrossing meetings (I'm willing to swap them).
- Christmas, New Year, Easter, or birthday postcards are welcome at the right time of the year.
If you are talented, feel free to send me a hand-made / self-drawn card.
Beautiful stamps always make me happy.
You can have a look at my Favorites and Received galleries to make up your mind (but don't waste your time there).
- blasphemous cards
Please NEVER apologise for not finding a perfect card for me. Just send me one you think I may like, or one you like yourself.
To me, Postcrossing is about sharing, bringing people closer and making the world a better place, not about collecting postcards.
Be happy and pay it forward,
PS: If you want to keep in touch, you can add me on Facebook.
