About Echo...

Short & Easy:
I don't really care much for the picture - you can send me whatever!
The backside is more important to me - but don't stress about it either! :)
***** To possible pals****

🖖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 (Echo) moved from Portugal to Finland with my computer, few clothes… and postcards! One time got lost in Ireland and a donkey saved my life... but that's another story. ☘️

I miss Sammy so much but I'm still getting my life back on track as an immigrant. I intend to bring him here and adopt a couple more cats (maybe an husky too?) when life is more stable.

Lately I've been obsessed with grassroots comics. Every week I go to a feminist organization and tell stories about immigrants, refugees, queer people, etc, through a comic workshop. I love storytelling. I'm not that good at drawing but we've been having fun doing this.

I struggle (a lot) with my mental health. I'm neurodivergent and the world is too noisy for me, so I find solace in the written word and snail-mail. I love spending time alone (more than a regular human) and during those times you can be sure I'm either watching non-english movies, reading dystopian and/or feminist books, binge-watching Star Trek, listening to riot grrrl, making zines, writing stuff or watching cat videos. Oh, and writing letters and postcards, of course! :)

Diversity and randomness are something that I really appreciate.
Fun fact: I never wear matching socks! What about you?

This is NOT a Wishlist. Do NOT worry about duplicates too. As I said, I'm more interested if you talk to me about things instead of just, well, showing me things. :)
