Welcome, welcome everyone !
I am in a bright mood today :)
I wanted to write a little about the relationships I have made with international exchange students. Let's start with the one who lasted for more than a year : Sweden, Taiwan, Thailand and American. I met most of them in NYC when I couldn't say a word in english but I believe true relationships are forever and the language is not a barrier. We've been chatting ever since our exchange year, we struggled together and understand each other perfectly haha.
Monday, I sent 5 postcards across the world, one to each of them and one to the Lim. I was excited to write adresses to places I've never been to. I also started to send postcards to total stangers. We exchange our adresses through facebook via a group and it's pretty fun because you receive/send mail to foreign nation. The last one was to Lithuania !
I probably used more stamps than my whole family. My handwriting is everywhere, isn't amazing ?!
I call them friends because even if we met only once or not at all, I share more thoughts with them than most of the french people I hang out with (I don't mean the close ones). Don't worry, I'm very careful, I know that internet can be dangerous.
Monday, I also received a package from Taiwan !!! My friend there mailed me little gifts from his country. Pensils, keychains, note paper, t-shirt... I can't thank him enough.
I don't have the money to travel but this is my way to discover our wonderful planet without moving... for now at least.
