I've just joined a penpal site. Global Penfriends. It's great! And free!!
Check it out if you'd like to make new friends. So far I've made penfriends in Australia (Victoria and Queensland) and Finland. Some like to snail mail, some email. Whichever way, it's nice to meet new people and learn about their life, interests and country.
And I am not being paid for this endorsement :))
