One of the many reasons for my affection is finding people like my new penpal Anna. She is from the Saratov region of Russia. She is the most kind and thoughtful person I've ever had the pleasure of corresponding with. We have a bit of a deal now. She collects stamps. Every month or so, I send her an envelope including a few postcards and stamps, and she sends one right back! She's actually ahead of me in the sending game - sometimes sending me two in the time it takes me to get one in the post!
And she doesn't just settle with stamps - here are the contents of a few of her envelopes. Yes, that's tea! And stickers!
In the Christmas card she also translated the message!
Envelope 2, more great stamps, postcards, tea, stickers and fliers for movies in Russian!
Envelope no 3, postcards (look at the cat one omg), stickers and a little magnetic calendar!
I've been trying to make up for her awesome parcels with some awesomeness of my own. Tea, a koala magnet, rad postcards and aussie alphabet stickers!
Does anyone have any other suggestions of things I could easily fit into an envelope and send to my penpal? I must out-awesome her (because obviously it's a competition!).
