Weekend getaways, ultimate frisbee competitions, music festivals...summer is amazing, right? With Memorial Day right around the corner, now is the time to start setting your summer goals, and this year why not add an online pen pal to the list?!
Back in the “olden days” people would be assigned a pen pal through an organization and then they’d write hand-written letters back and forth to learn about each other’s cultures and customs. Today, it’s so much easier to connect with new friends around the world! Use the SKOUT Travel feature to find someone to talk to anywhere in the world, immediately. You won't have to wait interminable weeks for a response from your pen pal, and of course, there is the added benefit of not having to look around for a postage stamp!
Don’t know where to begin? We’ll make it easy for you… Our team combed through data to uncover the friendliest cities around the world. Take a look at the map below. In the past month, Skouters in these cities have made the most connections. So go ahead, reach out and strike up a conversation. Who knows, maybe you’ll meet someone who will be a friend for life!
