my name is Valeria,
I speak English and Russian. I speak German a little. Also I can read and write in Latin quite freely and studied Ancient Greek.
I studied Bulgarian at the University long ago. So please, if you're from Bulgaria or speak the language, feel free to write me in Bulgarian! Also I'm interested in other Slavic languages (Ukrainian, Serbian, Croatian, Slovenian, etc...).
I love letters and postcards, reading, studying, music (classic and jazz especially), historical reenactment events, LARP, electricity & soldering (not a girly thing to do at all, I know... but I like it anyway).
I play piano, cello, and double bass (contrabasso).
My favourite TV shows are Jeeves and Wooster, Granada Sherlock Holmes, Doctor Who, Torchwood, and Sherlock BBC. I also like Harry Potter.
I am a seafarer! I study Navigation at the Admiral Makarov College of Maritime and Inland Shipping and work on a ferry called Princess Anastasia, it is a ro-ro pax ship which calls at ports of St.Petersburg, Helsinki, Stockholm, Tallinn and - rarely - Riga.
I'm positively in love with ships, yachts and all sailing vehicles and naval stuff, from warships and submarines to fishers' boats and Indian canoes. I would be the happiest person here at postcrossing if you send me a postcard which has something to do with all that.
I love pictures of red-haired women with snow-white skin. ♥
Also I would be glad to receive a postcard from you showing something of my favourite things: seas, rivers, lakes, aeroplanes, sky, stars, musical instruments and musicians, books, letters, cozy houses, street lamps, locomotives, yellow cars, images of cities and people dated early 1900s., old photographs, portraits of reading women, symmetry, mirrors, reflections, Quint Buchholz, reproductions of paintings, etc. The first and foremost criterion is that the image inspires, encourages to think or simply takes your breath away.
If you're not sure which card to choose, look through my favourites, maybe you'll manage to find something similar to them. ;)
By the way, Christmas cards in December and Birthday cards in April are welcome!
I'm interested in stamps, too. It's always nice to get a postcard with peculiar stamp on it.
