Travelling from my desk

Writing letters to others in different countries to your own seems like an old fashioned hobby, however a couple of months ago I decided to give it a try and I have since fallen in love with this form of correspondence. When you receive a letter filled with details about somebody else's hometown, their culture, even their own travels it makes you feel as though you are taking a little trip abroad. This is especially noticeable when you receive such delights as postcards, photos, collages or stickers that someone has carefully put together in a little package for you. This morning I got a lovely surprise when I opened a letter to find some tea that had travelled to me from Germany! 

This is another reason why I have decided to start this blog. I want to share my passion for culture and language, for travel, particularly in the Nordic region. I'd like to think that there is somebody out there who likes to travel through their computer as much as I do and will enjoy reading this as much as I enjoy writing it. 

Do you correspond with someone from a different country? What is your favourite experience of doing so?

  4. Hi ! =)
    I correspond with a person from an other country.
    I don't have favourite experience because all the time I talk with it's my favourite experience ! ^
    But I have a bad experience... When I learned that her country was devastated by a tsunami and an earthquake ... She lives in Japan.
    I think that, even with lot of km between us, friendship can exist between two people from different countries.
