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 or another language you know, since I have always enjoyed learning languages since I was 11.
Please read the list in the"Languages" field above. I also know Latin, Ancient Greek, Esperanto, and a bit of Swedish, Breton, Czech, Slovene, Croatian, Serbian, Bulgarian, Greek, Finnish. I recently started studying Arabic and Norwegian. Feel free to suggest a language I should study in the future.
I come from Rovigo, a town near Venice, Italy, but now I'm living in Brittany, a Celtic land in NW France.
My hobbies are travelling, taking photos (follow me on instagram @thewanderingeuroglot), reading, listening to music, watching game shows and TV series, riding my e-bike, and more.
I love visiting new cities and countries, with their architecture, art, history, traditions, beliefs. 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 PC meeting near you (or far away...). My next meetup will be in Bordeaux on 9 June.
For this reason, 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 and hobbies, your dreams, or about your favourite book, music, film, travel destination, and so on. Anything you'd like to share. You are welcome to decorate or draw on your card.
I am not very picky about postcards. 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 (EUROPA, Postcrossing or other themes) 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).
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,
