Hey! I have someone in a swap who has sent an angel package to Germany.It's been about 3 weeks now, and she's starting to worry her angel package has gotten eaten by the postal system somewhere.  I'm wondering if those of you who swap to/from Germany could give me a bit of a heads up on how much time it usually takes to ship from the USA to Germany.  Thanks!

Did she send airmail or parcel post?  Parcel post can take up to 3 months to arrive.  Airmail is usually, at tops, 3 weeks.

It took almost six weeks for my package to Germany to arrive and I sent it first class airmail...I think it is because of their customs and not the postal service...
