Pen Pals


Hi! I’m Andrea, a 19 year old (20 in two months!) girl from the Czech Republic, currently studying Maths and Philosophy at the university of Edinburgh. 

I’m looking for snail mail pen pals – someone to exchange long, handwritten, decorated letters with (I like to put a lot of effort into my letters, and I often include things like drawings or polaroids, and I’m looking for a pen pal who will do the same). I submitted an ad about two years ago, and I’m trying again now because I recently lost contact with two of my pen pals.

My favourite hobby is art: I draw a lot (sometimes to the point of not really having a social life because of it), I often go to live drawing classes and visit galleries. (I have an art-themed instagram ‘rejka’ if you wanna check that out).

I also watch a lot movies and tv shows, my favourite films being Cloud Atlas, Some Like it Hot,The Shape of Water, and more or less anything by Tarantino or Guy Ritchie; and my favourite shows being Black Sails, OITNB, Hannibal and Sense8 (just to name a few) (I have way too many to list here).

I’m also bit of a book addict, and I have the problem of buying a lot  more books than I have time to read. I don’t exactly have a preferred genre, but my forever favourite authors are Oscar Wilde and Terry Pratchett.

I love to travel (I mean who doesn’t, right?) and my favourite countries I’ve visited so far are Italy and Turkey. I am very much drawn to old places, historical sites and monuments, and beautiful things. I’m also a bit of a history nerd who’s currently very into the Roman empire (I had a chance to take an extra course about ancient rome at uni and I fell in love).

Oh and I’m also gay, so it would be cool to have a pen pal who’s part of the LGBT community 🙂 

 If you’re interested in being my pen pal, you can send me an email to andrejka.lh @

– I’m looking forward to hearing from you!
