About Matt...

Milestone reached: I sent out card #2,222 on March 23rd, and received #2,222 on April 2, 2020. And today 24.6: 2,400!

All of us here seem to be travelers at heart and in spirit. Postcards are small works of art that let us imagine undiscovered places. And magically, they connect strangers as friends and for a few moments they give us a glimpse into a life in a place faraway.

I am privileged to have visited about 90 countries so far (see list below) and have lived on four continents; the kindness of those I have met along the way is inspiring. I'm currently based in Virginia, USA, and I send cards from home or anyplace when I travel.

I enjoy coffee, nature, poetry, gardens, watching the ever-changing sky, being close to water, seeing wildlife/birds and walking in forests / parks. I most like cards showing natural scenes, such as:

- natural landscapes, islands, forests or mountains;
- wild birds, wild cats
- waterfalls, rivers, streams
- maps, or the age of exploration
- national parks and World Heritage sites,
- Sunsets, the moon, stars, horizons, or sky images,
- Lord of the Rings, Merlin, Hobbit, legends, castles, medieval art.

Also as a philatelist I REALLY appreciate if you can several colorful stamps on the card. Also, take a look at my postcard blog if you're curious: www.africapostcards.blogspot.com or on Facebook at https://www.facebook.com/Africa-Stamps-203724179701489/
