Who are we?

It also allows all cyber people of the whole world to get in touch with foreigners in order to develop cultural and linguistic affinities.


A 15000 card-index database, coming from 90 different nationalities, is at disposal on the website


The card-index data can be filled free of charge on the website.


In order for this service to keep going, pen pal addresses will be paid for. If you buy 5 addresses at once the cost will be 2 euros/address (or 2 US dollars), crediting your account of 10 euros minimum. Only one address costs 4 euros. The quickest way of purchase is through international credit card (number and expiry date) in a secured mode or Paypal.
