Virginia eh? I'd take you up on that.

And for the next will be coming out of Austin,Texas, USA.


I'll take a letter from the land of Shiner Bock!
 
I would love to send a letter to somewhere-not-in-North-America. You'll receive it from Oregon, USA, where we are known for rain, micro-breweries, and the documentary known as "Portlandia." (No guarantees that your letter will include rain or beer, however.)

How about sending a letter to Germany, land of some famous breweries? :-)

I'd love to send mine to any place in the world, so who's up for a letter from the land of Lamy and Montblanc?

I would be tickled to receive a(nother) letter from Deutschland - just not in Deutsch, which I don't read well at all!

 

Would anyone want a letter form the Heart of Texas, Waco?

I've been to Texas before. Had to stop at the Dallas airport twice. Would love to receive a letter from you abstract!

 

I am located in SoCal. If the next post is international, it'll be my very first letter to write to someone outside the U.S.

I'll take a letter from Finland.  I'll PM my address momentarily.

 

While I'm posting on this thread...I received a letter from someone on FPN in the last few months (via this thread, I think) that used a blue Franklin-Christoph ink.  I think it may have been a vintage/out-of-production ink.  Do you happen to be that person/use that ink?  If so, can you tell me specifically what ink it was?  Thanks!

 

Next person gets a letter from Green Bay, WI.

I'm not that person but a letter from Wisconsin would be great :-) I don't know anything about that state so you will need to tell me what it's like there ;-)

And who wants a letter from Germany and learn something about my country?

I'm from the Netherlands, and I'd love to hear a German person's vision on Germany. You can write in German, English, or Platt, if you know it.

So, the next person gets a letter from Twente, in the Netherlands.
You can choose what you want me to write about. A few things that I could talk about, are:
 

1. I can tell you a short version of my life's story. A lot has happened.

2. I can tell you about my region and the regional language some of us speak.

3. I can tell you about my work as a musician.

4. I can tell you my view on politics, and current affairs in the world.

 

You can also choose in which language I write: English, Dutch, German, Esperanto. I can also write Swedish and French quite poorly, or write in Dutch low Saxon, which I doubt anyone who isn't from here can actually read.

The next poster gets a letter from a Bavarian in his Swiss exile.

Since it's in the neighborhood, I'd like to take part in this. After all, a letter from Switcherland is always welcome!

 

Now we'll see, who wants to get a letter written under the Attica sun and with some aegean breeze in it.

I'm game for this! I'm a 42 yo man, and I'm finishing my MBA in 3 weeks. Hobbies before, and hopefully again soon, were fishing, brewing, photography, straight shaving, beekeeping, and kayaking. I'm happy to receive a letter from anyone, as I think the last handwritten letter I received was when I was a freshman in college in 1992, from several of my friends (ultimately providing email addresses...).

Bumping up the thread!

Next poster will get a letter from Croatia (ok, ok, too many ink samples received at once - you get to choose which colours you would like it to be: reds, greens, browns, purples..?), and you may get a perfectly usable and tested recipe!
