My prayers and thoughts are with Ukraine and Ukrainian postcrossers in these dark times. Find out how you can help here: https://www.postcrossing.com/blog/2022/03/09/the-war-in-ukraine.💙💛
Ciao! My name is Michele, which is Italian for Michael, Miguel, Mikhail... (its correct spelling is Микеле in Russian, Мікеле in Ukrainian or Belarusian, 미켈레 in Korean).
I come from Rovigo, a quiet town near Venice, Italy. Learn more about Rovigo and its province: https://youtu.be/56xNy0ieOdw.
From time to time, I live in the Celtic region of Bretagne in NW France: https://youtu.be/nR9eU_tVbxE.
I am on Postcrossing to make new connections and experiences. I started attending PC-meetups in 2017 and I've made some good friends around Europe and beyond.
Therefore, the back of your postcard is more important to me than its front. Now more than ever before. 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.
Please, write me in your mother tongue or a language you know, since I have always enjoyed learning languages.
Beside the languages listed above, I also know Latin, Ancient Greek, Esperanto, and bits of Swedish, Norwegian, Breton, Czech, Slovene, Bulgarian, Greek, Finnish, Arabic. Feel free to suggest a language I should study in the future.
My other 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 walked the Camino de Santiago (St James' Way) from the Pyrenees to Santiago de Compostela in 2017.
A normal view-card of your city/area/country and their monuments, nature or culture, will always be appreciated, especially from a "rare country".
I also like postcards showing:
- local people
- traditional recipes
- local festivals
- religious ceremonies
- beautiful illustrations
- Postcrossing-related cards, and meeting cards signed by the participants (I already have these: https://bit.ly/36VJsFq)
- Christmas, New Year, Easter, your local holiday, or birthday postcards at the right time of the year.
If you feel creative, feel free to send me a hand-made / self-drawn card.
Beautiful stamps always make me happy, in particular EUROPA, Postcrossing, "stand with Ukraine" stamps. 💙💛
Please don't apologise for not finding the perfect card for me or for only speaking English. To me, Postcrossing is about sharing, bringing people closer, not about collecting postcards or judging your language skills.
