Hello all! Seeking a few pen pals

Hi, I'm new to the site and hoping to find a few pen pals. I'm 52, married and have two young adult children as well as two dogs. I have many hobbies, including reading (horror, fantasy), hiking, pen paling (prefer snail mail), gardening, cooking, watching movies (horror, sci fi, fantasy), listening to music (metal, 80s, classic rock, alternative), traveling, and crafting.

I am also interested in history, genealogy, the paranormal, mythology, world cultures, and languages. I'd love to write to someone from Scotland and Ireland, however, will write to anyone worldwide.

I'm most interested in learning about others and welcome long letters. Thanks for reading!

Hi Kaides,
I share some of your hobbies, reading, cooking, hiking. I read a wide variety of stuff if it grabs my attention. I like listening to music especially Celtic. My family have flown the nest so I have time to spend on my hobbies. I like to travel, pre covid anyway. All of my travels have been in GB or Europe. I live in Scotland. Where in the world are you? Thanks for reading too!

Hello Kaides, I was interested to read your profile and we seem to have quite a lot in common. I am female, aged 66 and live in Manchester. I know that's not Scotland or Ireland, but hoping you will still be interested in chatting with me. In films and books, I also really like horror, science fiction and fantasy (particularly Stephen King and Dean Koontz) and as for music I love metal, soft rock, classic rock, but also listen to some classical, soul, 60's, 70's, 80's, some 90's etc. My favourite hands are Led Zeppelin, Pink Floyd, Yes, Metallica, but also love hands like the Beatles and Abba. I am also interested in genealogy, mythology, different cultures and generally anything mysterious. I would love to hear back from you, so hoping you will reply. Kind regards. Karen
