I love to communicate. Everything from calligraphy, handwriting to languages and old sayings makes me happy. Do you have a word, a phrase or a poem that you particularly like in your language? Write it down and translate it, please!
I also collect those lovely words from other languages that almost seem impossible to put into words in our language. Words for feelings we’ve felt but never been able to name. In my language there's one: "saudade". If you have one, please share!
I have an intense desire to travel and I'm constantly collecting new places to visit. Are you particularly proud of something in your country or there is a place or monument you think everyone should visit there? Please, say it (or better yet show me on your postcard).
I studied Biology. Anything involving science, wild animals, plants, landscapes, forests/woods, the sea, the sky, clouds, stars and constellations, the universe would make me happy as well. Also everything related to iconic scientists/people e.g. Ernst Haeckel, Charles Darwin, Jane Goodall, Leonardo da Vinci, Marie Curie, Galileo...
