Pen palling is a hobby that has suffered in the age of technology. I remember there use to be pen pal magazines! Classrooms used to find pen pals for students. It was so cool to write to a person the same age in a different country. I'm an adult now and a mom and still find it cool to talk to others in different countries. Although there are fewer pen pallers, they have put some neat swings on things. Hopefully you'll be inspired to start a new hobby!
