I started my penpal experience one year ago, and I have to say that it has been one of the best experiences in my life! I think having a penpal friend allows you to meet wonderful people and cultures, but also is a way to be more creative.

I always try to share what I send and what I receive in my penpal letters through my instagram stories, and I receive so many messages asking me for becoming penpals. Unafortunately, I can’t accept any new penpals, because I don’t have enough time. And for me, it’s so important to send letters more frequently to the same person.

That’s why I decided to create a “Find your penpal” post on my instagram. There, you can add a comment introducing yourself (Name, age, country, hobbies,…) or reading the comments already posted, in order to find someone that share the same interests than you.

I will attach you below the link, so you can start your penpal experience! You won’t regret it!

There's so many people that want to start penpalling and they don't know how to find their penpal, so that's why I decided to create this post. 💌 WHAT YOU HAVE TO DO. Leave a comment below introducing yourself:name, age, country, hobbies, some preferences or what you expect from your penpal (long letters, postcards, exhanging stationery, practising a language, tea,…). Then, people can read your comment and answer it if they're interesed or they can send you a Direct Message. 💌 RECOMMENDATIONS. -Don't forget to check the comments regularly to find new people. -Don't add your address. -If you have a public account, it will be easier for the ones that want to become your penpal. -Don't be rude, this community is so wonderful. -Feel free to share this picture to your stories to help other people know you.
