Dear fellow Postcrossers,
lately I have been thinking about looking for another snail mail penfriend.
I would totally love to correspond, by hand (only occasionally by typed letters), with someone who works in a Botanic Garden. Someone who has a passion for plants, like I do, and would tell me about their work.
If you have a look at my official profile and feel there are similarities in taste and interests (apart from plants) and you would feel comfortable writing to me, please get in touch.
I see my – and your – writing as a dialogue, that just takes a bit longer than on the phone or by e-mail. You write a letter, I reply, then it is your turn again. I like questions to be answered and my letters to be commented. I do likewise.
We can correspond in German or English.
The length of our letters should make the postage worthwhile. I’d rather wait a bit longer for a long letter. Not all letters are written in one go.
Someone (more or less) close to my age, mid-50s, would be ideal, but as a friend once said: you are never your age, you are either 16 or 100!!! So, let’s say, mid-40s up to any age would be super!
I have had pen pals since primary school and decades long experience tells me: if I am good, I am very good, but if I am bad, I am very bad. Meaning: sometimes I write back within a week, sometimes it can take months though.
Everyone has a life besides letter-writing.
It would be nice to get/send information, when letters get sent/are received, by private (Postcrossing) message. Other than that I really prefer snailmail.
I would love to exchange postcards occasionally also.
I use, and like, special stamps and pretty papers are also much appreciated.
If all of that sounds good to you, I would love to read from you!
