Did you have a pen pal when you were younger? I had a few - I had a pen pal in Germany who I wrote to for a few years & I also had a few school friends who kept in touch by letter after they moved away. In fact, I think I still have all of my letters upstairs in a box - I think I may have to dig them out!!! Obviously, with all of the social media sites around these days & the introduction of email, letters just seem ridiculously old-fashioned & is becoming obsolete to the future generations, which is a shame.
I recently heard about a Pen Pal "group" that was being arranged by Marina & I thought it was a really fun idea, so I signed up. I'm so excited about this & I received my first letter the other day. How fantastic is it to receive an actual letter in the post?!!! I can't wait to start writing, although I'm also a bit nervous as my handwriting is awful after years of using computers!!!
I lost contact with my German pen pal but I'm still in contact with my school friends on Facebook. I wonder whether you are still in contact with your pen pal?
