How I Traveled Without Leaving my Hometown.

Meeting My Pen Pals for the First Time

If you have ever started pen palling at any time in your life, you get to the point in that friendship that you really want to meet that person. I have only met two of my pen pals, Helena from Australia and Winnie Wu from Taiwan. Sometimes meeting someone like this can leave you in a pretty awkward position especially if you are not very social. I thought that I had been over what I would say a thousand times, what questions I would ask if I ever met any of my pals. Here are the stories of my first meet ups with Helena and Winnie.

3. We do not all wear overalls. ( I’ll admit I have a pair of short overalls.) 

4. We do not all own a pair of boots. ( I’ll admit that I do.) 

5. Not all girls like to dress up, not all girls like to go hunting and get dirty.
