I have joined these type of swaps in the past, but have not seen one recently. So I decided to host one myself.

You will have one partner and send him/her something every week during the whole month of October. There are five weeks in October, so you will send five separate letters/postcards/parcels. Please keep in mind this is an international swap and you will have to pay postage five times!

Week 1 (send by 3rd October): Send an introductory letter to your partner. Make it at least two pages A5.

Week 2 (send by 10th October): Send a postcard from your hometown or from a place you visited recently. Write a little bit about the town/region.

Week 3 (send by 17th October): Send something your partner can use for his/her hobbies. This can be a bookmark, stationary, DIY supplies... Please check your partner's profile. It can be something that fits in a normal sized envelope. Write a letter and tell your partner a bit about your own hobbies.

Week 4 (send by 24th October): Send some tea, coffee or candy/chocolate. Check your partner's profile for likes and dislikes. It doesn't have to be much, an envelope with 20-50 g will be enough.

Week 5 (send by 31st October): Send another letter (at least 2 pages A5) and tell your partner about your October, about happy moments, sad moments, life lessons, anything special that happened... whatever comes to mind when you think about the past month.

Maybe your partner will want to write back to you and answer your letters, so there can be a dialogue between you two. It is not a requirement, but will be a nice way to find a new penpal.

Always include your swap-bot name and name of the swap and state for which week it is!

Please put a bit of an effort in this swap, make the envelopes look nice, use nice stationary, take care to read your partner's profile and send something that he or she will like.

Communication is important for this swap. Message me and your partner if there are problems with meeting the individual deadlines. You can only mark "sent" after sending all five letters/itmes. Please rate your partner when you have received everything.

I will check profiles very carefully and only allow swappers with well filled out profiles. If you have any 1 or 3 ratings, message me and explain the situation. No newbies allowed, sorry.

Feel free to message me or comment with any questions.
