About Matt...

All of us here seem to be travelers at heart and in spirit. Postcards and stamps are small works of art that let us imagine undiscovered places. Someone took the time and remarkable care to hand write and decorate a card that is delivered to us, and by a sort of magic it appears in the mailbox and we have a glimpse into a life and 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 truly humbling.

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, wildlife
- waterfalls, rivers, lakes
- 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.

What to say? Why not tell me about a place that stirred your soul, or about something that inspires you? Or a dream on the horizon...

As a philatelist I really appreciate colorful stamps on the card. Also, take a look at my postcard blog if you're curious: www.africapostcards.blogspot.com

Milestones: Card #4,000 sent (to Belarus) on April 20, 2022, and #4,000 received from Portugal on April 22, 2021.
