About Me

Hi, I'm Erika from Belgium. I'm a married, devoted mother of 2: Elric (14) and Amber (10).

I'm an openminded person and you can chat about anything with me. Age, gender, sexuality doesn't matter to me.

I love cats and other animals; I currently have 3 cats (Baby, Loki and Twilight) and 1 bunny (Koala) at home. My cats love all those crispy, silverfoil toys, and katnip and feathers. They hate food/snacks with rabbit in it as they associate that with our own bunnies. Clever they are... :) I have worked as a volenteer in a shelter for cats for years, but I had to stop for a while because of my children, I hope to volenteer again when I have more free time as my children get more independent.

I like to collect things like stamps on the letters I receive, goodluck charms, cat items, cute/kawaii letter sets and stickers, minerals and gemstones, maneki neko (japanese goodfortune cat), Japanese cultural items, etc.

My hobbies are: baking, cooking, crafts, occasionally playing a video game (I love Legend of Zelda and Final Fantasy games), Japanese culture and language, movies, music, reading and writing fanfiction, etc

Favorite Television

Series: Supernatural, Game of thrones, the Tudors, Batlestar gallactica, Babylon 5, X-files, Twilight zone, Sleepy Hollow, Avatar, etc

Movies: Ghostbusters (the NEW one as well as the old movies), Blades of glory, Willow, Labyrinth, My cousin Vinny, the Mummy, Indiana Jones, The Avengers, Thor, Sinister, Insidious, The woman in black, Lord of the Rings, Harry Potter, The others, etc.

Anime: Fullmetal Alchemist, D. Grey man, Versailles no bara, Saint Seiya, Wataru, Slayers, Sailor moon, Fushigi Yugi, Vampire Knight, Dragon Ball Z, Utena

findthosedreams rated for New pen pal - 1 per country on Oct 5, 2015
Comment: Erika! I loved your letter!!! I was able to read your handwriting with no trouble, but I am also completely ok with typing if you so choose. I sometimes type because my hands will ache from hand writing, and I figure you get a better, more detailed letter when I type. Usually I try to do a mix. I am so excited to be your pen pal and hope to write back soon. :)
Response: Hi Natalie, thank you so much for your wonderful message! I'm relieved that my typed letter didn't annoy you ;) Thanks for wanting to be my pen pal! Take your time :)
