UK Pen Pals
Does anyone know of any websites out there that would allow me to set up a pen pal relationship with someone in the UK? I will be traveling over there next year and would hope to have a friendly face if needed.

Your local elementary school teachers may lead you in the right direction.There is a program that fifth graders start;perhaps the school-age program info will lead you to adult program.Just a thought...

I was curious and just did a Google search for ' UK penpal list' . Several pages came up..I will leave it for you to explore all the options there.

Why pen-pal?<BR>Why not just chat with someone online?<BR>There are a lot of chat rooms out there.

Why not hook up with someone here? There's a number of regular Fodorites in the UK who meet up with visiting Fodorites from time to time.

I've often met up with visiting Fodorites, who have emailed me about something or other - it's always been a pleasure.<BR>If you'd like to email, please do, I always enjoy corresponding with people from different places.<BR>Kavey<BR>(London)
