Send mail to Japan,Tokyo from the UK,Liverpool.?
My girlfriend is currently in Japan and she won't be returning to the UK for a while.
It's her birthday soon and of course I need to get her something!
She has given me the address where she is staying... There's just one problem.
I've NEVER sent mail.
Not in the UK, not abroad... Nothing!
I've never put something in a mail box, I've never used a post office.
Please understand my concern!
August 19th is her birthday, will I need to purchase express mailing for it to get there on time?

I have no experience with this.

Please can you tell me step by step how to correctly write, seal and take it to the post office.
How much will it cost?
What do I need to do before taking it to the post office?
Every single minor detail! PLEASEE!!

I really need help with this, thank you very much!

No matter how old you are, family history is important. While you might not think so at the time, as you get older there will be things you and your grandchildren will want to know. Most of us don't realize it until the older generations are gone and you can't replace first hand comments. Don't just put in about the good times, add in the harder times and how you overcame those trials. Another thing to remember is what caused the deaths of those you loved. There are many things that have been found to continue into future generations that knowing it runs in the family can be helped with now or possible in the future. prevention starts with knowing where to start. I wish someone had taken the time to write these things down for mew to be able to go back to. My Grandmother and my mother told us many stories of what things happened in their lives and about the people in their lives. I now wish someone had written those things down since both have passed now. But I never thought at that busy point in my life that I would one day want to remember all those things. So much family history is lost when the older generations are gone. Please pass it on to your family while you can. You can even just do it digitally so it can be accessed by family later on.Family pictures are something to cherish also. Just be sure to write down who is pictured in them, where they are taken and when. I have found family pictures that no one now even knows who is in them.
