mikebond(or Michele) is a member in Italy . He has been a member for over 9 years (3,613 days).
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, Michel, Miguel, etc.
Please, write me in your native language or a language you are learning, even if it isn't mentioned here. For non-European languages, please add a transliteration/translation.
I have always enjoyed learning languages since I was 11.
Beside those mentioned above, I also know Latin, Ancient Greek, Esperanto, and a bit of: Czech, Slovene, Croatian, Serbian, Bulgarian, Greek, Finnish and Ukrainian. Again, I'd be happy if you used any of these languages or similar ones in your postcard. Feel free to suggest a language I should study in the future.
I come from Rovigo, a town near Venice, Italy, but I sometimes live in Brittany, a special land in North-Western 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 not very picky about postcards. A normal view-card (or "tourist card") of your city/area/country and their monuments, nature or culture, will always be appreciated.
I also like postcards showing
- local people
- traditional recipes
- cultural festivals
- religious ceremonies
- beautiful illustrations
- Postcrossing meeting-cards etc.
You can send me Christmas, New Year, Easter, or birthday postcards at the right time of the year.
If you are talented, you are welcome to send me a hand-made / self-drawn card.
Beautiful stamps (EUROPA, Postcrossing or other themes) make me happy.
The only themes I would say NO to are:
- porn/naked people
- blasphemous art or messages
and possibly NO:
- ad cards
- folded cards
- poorly self-printed or self-made cards.
You can have a look at my Favorites and Received galleries to make up your mind.
Anyway, I value the message more than the photo on your postcard.
Please write more than just "Greetings from...": tell me about yourself, your daily life and hobbies, or about your favourite book, music, film, travel destination, and so on. Feel free to decorate or draw on your card.
Please write ON the postcard. I don't like receiving blank postcards.
All the best,
