Between the ages of 8 and 12, I was pretty obsessed with pen pals. I had a whole bunch of them in Singapore, Japan, Greece, England and the USA.
We'd write on the coolest paper and envelopes we could find (Japan always came out on top), swap stickers and small gifts and stories of our everyday lives as little girls of the world.
Nothing was more exciting than getting that letter in the post - a little bit of magic that was recreated for me this week when I received my tiny silver earrings from Thailand. Just thought I'd share that with you.
