PEN PALS! Image and video hosting by TinyPic

Hey guys!

In my opinion, having pen pals is probably one of the greatest things ever. Some of you may not understand my excitement, but I just love writing letters. & the excitement of getting a letter is priceless. Nearly everyday I would ask my mum "Have I got any letters?", and every time she says yes, it makes my day. It's nearly unimagable for me to not have a pen pal. When I was younger I used to have two pen pals, one from Austria and one from Switzerland. Unfortunately we lost contact and I haven't heard from both of them ever since. However, I'll never forget them and their letters :)

Some of you may think "Why should I write letters when I can also write emails? I don't have to wait as long to get a reply and it's not that expensive." You're right, but writing letters can be so much fun! You can design your letters as you like. Be creative! Try to find small, cute gifts for your pen pal, they will appreciate nearly everything you send them! One of my pen pals sent me a teabag recently, and while writing this I am enjoying my cup of tea from the Netherlands!

But it shouldn't just be about the presents you may receive. Other than that, you may gain a lot of friends from all over the world. You will get to know so many great people if you just take the opportunity! 
Oh, and if you're also one of the few who are still collecting stamps, like I am, you'll get a lot more for your collection. :)

There are a lot of sites for that purpose on tumblr, for example letters and giftsthe place for pen pals, and many more! 

Do you have a pen pal? If so, tell me about it in the comments :)

    Ich habe gerade total viele pen pals über instagram gefunden (ich muss nur noch mit dem Schreiben hinterherkommen...) und ich liebe es einfach, Briefe zu bekommen und zu schreiben!
