About Iambus...

Hello, postcrosser! Nice to meet you!

I'm a photographer, traveler and occasional screenwriter. I like spending my time writing stories and playing folky melodies on the guitar. In college I chose to major in linguistics: I believe that learning new languages helps you discover new dimensions of reality.

I'm a stranger, I'm your 'single-serving friend' -
So tell me a story! I would absolutely love reading about your incredible adventures, impossible recurring dreams, your last week's subway crush, strange family customs, weather logs, advice on how to beat a writer's block, your favorite folk tales, the landscape you see through the window or if you think it is a good idea to get a pet rabbit. Anything you're passionate about, pass a little bit of that on to me!

I am trying to collect written and stamped postcards from as many different states as possible and that is why I prefer them to be sent from the country of origin.
So far I have received cards from 60 countries.
Take a look!
