User testimonials

“I get to be part of the world again. Last year, I was an exchange student in Portugal. This year, I'm back home in the USA and all of my friends are away at college. Through Postcrossing, I've felt connected to people again, and I've loved learning bits of people's languages and cultures. I <3 PC!”
