I started writing letters to people of my country when I was a young teenager, just because I felt like it. Eventually, I lost contact with these people, but I keep very good memories of that time. I loved to send those friends little presents. I don't regret it, at that time time, it was a very innocent act. If I read the letters now, we were just kids excited to talk with people who lived away with common interests.
Right know, I only write letters with a friend from my country. I knew that person on the internet, and after some time I asked her for her address (even if I can contact that person on internet ;)).
So I keep with this old fashioned tradition of writing letters and sending presents inside. I enjoy choosing what to send that person next time ;)
Go and write a surprise letter!!
