About Echo...

Welcome aboard the Starship Post All! 🖖

These are the voyages of Captain Echo and my number one official, a cat named Sammy, on our timeless mission to boldly write to where our words and meows have never been before.
There are no final frontiers, so please join us while we explore the Deltiology Quadrant.

Amidst a pandemic, I moved across Europe (from Portugal to Finland) with my computer, few clothes… and postcards!
I don’t “collect” them though: I’m here for the message part. So feel free to send any card, but please write something nice? 😄

I also lived in Slovenia and Spain before. However, my long life dream is to lead a quiet life in Ireland 🍀 with cats and goats as companions. What is yours?

I'm in love with geography, cultures, world cinema, storytelling, human rights, breaking stereotypes, fictional worlds/characters, video and photography, other graphies and especially "the" Graphy itself.
Diversity and randomness are something that I really appreciate.
Fun fact: I never wear matching socks!

I struggle with my mental health and I use Postcrossing as a way to connect. What about you?

-----------WHAT TO WRITE ABOUT------------

JUST SOME IDEAS* for the message, you can tell me about:

- a favorite song, book, movie, something
- important women in your life and your country;
- the stamp(s) on the postcard - I want to learn something! :)
- some interesting local news!
- what is on your mind (I’ll keep it a secret, promise)
- * whatever else you feel like writing, drawing or share with me!

Surprise me, really!

This is NOT a wishlist. Do NOT worry about duplicates too. :)
In case you need ideas on what type of card to send me, or what to write about in the back of the card, this is just a list of some things that interests me:

★ Star Trek(s) ❤︎ - all of them, but especially Voyager
DC Comics, Lisbeth Salander, Female Fictional Characters, Cinema, TV and Geeky Stuff
✯ National Geographic, Science(s), Universe, Astrology, Astronomy and Mithology, Flags and Maps - yes, touristic cards too, I'd like to see the world!

✯ Mental Health, Human Rights, Feminism, LGBTQ+, Politics (any)
★ Riot Grrrl, Courtney Love, Punk, Beat Generation and other subcultures
✯ Handmade cards and mail art in general. Weird, nonsense, bizarre, ugly. And AD cards!
