There are a lot of US only swaps out there, but hardly any European ones. It would be nice to save on postage stamps and make a europe only swap!

So here it is!

📮What do we expect?📮

✏Write a handwritten letter (a lot more personal, don't you agree?) to your partner. It should be at least 2 A5 pages (back and front!) or 1 A4 pages (back and front!). Want to write more? Wonderful! Less? Please don't join, that means this swap isn't the one for you.

✏write on some pretty letter or notepad paper, or use plain paper and decorate with washi, stickers, drawings.... make it attractive for your partner!

✏include a flat surprise. Sender's choice and can be anything (postcard, tea, bookmark, ....) It won't hurt to check your partner's profile to check for dislikes and allergies though.

✏Decorate the envelope. Just adding some washi is fine, just make it stand out a bit in your partner's mailbox.

✏rate your partner after you receive your swap. Leaving a comment doesn't take much of your time, but will definitely be appreciated

✏it's up to you if you write back or not. But hopefully some new friendships will be made! 😃

📮Who can participate?📮

✏you need to have a European address

✏ newbies welcome but you need to have been rated for at least one other swap

✏rating of at least 4.95

✏you need to have a well filled out profile for this swap

✏No recent or unexplained 1s or 3s!

✏I will check profiles before assigning partners and will ban anyone who looks "suspicious" from this swap!


✏I will angel but only if you first try to work things out with your partner. And you will rate them a 1 first, if they don't respond.

✏I hope this can be a fun swap and some new friendships will be made!

Thanks for that awesome swap ;) Mail to European countries comes much faster and very rarely gets lost on the way. It isn't traveling for months like to other parts of the world. It will be also amazing to find an interesting new penpal. Unfortunately, in Poland every postage abroad costs just as much :(

You're welcome! Great to see so many people have joined already. And yes, the fact that mail travels faster in between European countries is definitely another benefit 😊
