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 Belorussian) 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 I'm often living in Brittany, the Celtic land in NW France.
My hobbies are travelling, taking photos (I am on Instagram @thewanderingeuroglot), reading, listening to music, and more.
I love exploring new countries. I have been to many European countries and to Morocco so far. 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 PC-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.
A normal view-card of your city/area/country and their monuments, nature or culture, will always be appreciated, especially from a country I still have received no postcards from.
I also like postcards showing:
- local people
- traditional recipes
- cultural festivals
- religious ceremonies
- beautiful illustrations
- Postcrossing-related cards, and meeting cards signed by the participants (I already have these: https://bit.ly/2rLF7A9)
- Christmas, New Year, Easter, your local holiday, or birthday postcards 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 Favourites and Received galleries to make up your mind (but don't waste your time there).
- naked people
- disrespectful 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: Feel free to add me on Facebook to keep in touch.
