Wouldn't it be great to send a postcard and see where it had been all around the world? Then get it returned back to you after its adventures were over? Let's do it!


Choose a card. A card that you think people would enjoy seeing (however, PLEASE DO NOT USE EXTRA LARGE POSTCARDS THAT WILL REQUIRE EXTRA POSTAGE!). Put your name and address on the right hand side of the card. Put the title of the swap ("Adventures of the Traveling Postcard") at the top of the left hand side. PUT IT IN AN ENVELOPE and send it off to your partner. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~


Just write your name, username, city, state/country, on the left hand side of the postcard you received in the previous round. Put it in an envelope and send it to your partner! (DO NOT WRITE YOUR ENTIRE ADDRESS ON THE POSTCARD - THIS TAKES UP TOO MUCH SPACE!)


Twice a month, we will have another round. (Sign up when you receive yours from the previous round, start another one in rotation, or contact me, as I may have a postcard that needs to be put back into rotation as well!) When the left side of the postcard is filled up with the names and cities of those that have received the postcard, the last person will stamp your actual postcard and send it back to you.

Only join if you are awesome and a non-flaker. Well-established folks ONLY (50 or more Type 2/Type 3 swaps - although if you have already been in the swap, you will be allowed in even if you don't have 50) and I will ban if I feel that you may be a questionable swapper. I want to do my best to ensure that everyone receives their postcard back! So don't join if you don't think you can commit to it for the long haul, K? I will be checking EVERYONE'S profile. Thanks and happy swapping!

NOTE: Do NOT send the postcard back to the original owner until the left side of the postcard is completely filled!

danushaj 04/ 3/2013 #

Will you poss do a catch up round for those of us that have two cards?

mssarah01 04/ 3/2013 #

awww...love this idea!! Hope there is one around when i get enough ratings!!

wadesay 04/ 4/2013 #

on the round 6, the requirement was 20 or more Type 2/Type 3 swaps. so I tried to catch up. but now the requirement is increasing. I guess I have to wait (again) to join this swap :P.

inthewild 04/ 4/2013 #

Have not received from R6, but will sign up and hope it arrives before posting this round.

AnnieMaxine 04/ 4/2013 #

@danushaj It's OK if two cards travel together. If you don't want to deal with 2 in an envie, you can always send one to me and I can get it back into rotation.

I increased the amount of swaps required because I'm a little tired of harrassing people to send their swaps out! Seems that those with fewer swaps completed have a difficult time sending on time. :(

danushaj 04/ 4/2013 #

I shall send two in this round then, thanks for letting me know.

jgazin13 04/ 4/2013 #

I have Donna Owen's card. :)

Hoping my card hasn't gotten lost either!

joyceann888 04/ 5/2013 #

The card I have belongs to bookworm66.

kerrydwynn 04/ 5/2013 #

I have Rossi Kostova's! :-)

Deeno1105 04/ 6/2013 #

I finally rec'd the card that belongs to Janadah. I think it went to the wrong house and someone kept it before putting it in my mailbox. I'm just happy I got it from @Angee in time for this round.

EmilyT 04/ 6/2013 #

I have Theresa M's card (sending out this round) and Cynthia B's (sending out R8)

user6937 04/ 7/2013 #

I have Staci Zettel's card. Anyone have mine? I didn't see my name in the comments last time either.

user6937 04/ 7/2013 #

Maybe I didn't put my user name on it - real name is Sandra Dowkes (Calgary)

mcovey 04/ 8/2013 #

I am willing to send another one out for the previous round for someone that don;t have one pm me your addy and I will send a new one out

mcovey 04/ 8/2013 #

I have Liz Moores big homemade pc card , hopefully they will be smaller ones in future rounds , it has 5 addys including mine

CajunLady 04/ 9/2013 #

I haven't received from the previous swap, but the card is coming from Croatia. Hopefully soon.

AnnieMaxine 04/10/2013 #

@mcovey we had a few issues at the beginning with very large cards. I think I made it clear not to do that anymore. Hopefully people won't anymore :)

AnnieMaxine 04/10/2013 #

@mcovey also, Liz Moore has gone MIA. I'm not sure that she deserves her card to be in rotation any longer. I would be more than happy to send you one of a swapper that IS still in rotation!

AnnieMaxine 04/10/2013 #

I currently have @bungaalangalang and @IngridRijnen Though, more are going to be returning to me.

snout 04/10/2013 #

Mine is addressed to Heather Balentine.

sdowner 04/10/2013 #

Waiting on PC from R6 ... I have 2 cards in circulation and have no idea if they are still circulating. :-(

FundyGirl 04/11/2013 #

I just received @valmac s in the mail today. I'll be sending it to it's next destination as soon as I have one. :)

pne 04/12/2013 #

I sent out a pretty big card when it was my first turn, too... I went a bit overboard. I'd pick a slightly smaller one next time :)

Cranberry 04/12/2013 #

I have Laura Hanson's card (no Swap-Bot name on it). I am the third person it has been to.

Deeno1105 04/12/2013 #

Has anyone gotten mine?

earthnk 04/12/2013 #

I recvd E. Roger's, cute as a button Bambi Hello pc today from @amber999 FL USA. Looks like I'm the 5th one to get this card. Will send to R7 swap partner.

Anyone have my pc?

KarlaKC 04/13/2013 #

@Cranberry Laura Hanson is @thisisryanross

littleMaja 04/13/2013 #

I haven't received from Round 6 yet :( I hope to get it soon. What should I do if not?

mdkrouwel 04/13/2013 #

I guess I have to wait another round, I have 48 type 2 and 3 on my list so far......

AnnieMaxine 04/13/2013 #

@littleMaja - if you do not get your pc from your partner in time, you can choose to either put another one of your own in rotation, or wait until the next round! :)

pne 04/13/2013 #

@EmilyT if you have two cards and you're going to send one out later... surely you'll have the same problem then? Namely, you'll have the one card you're postponing now plus the one you'll get back for this round?

Unless you're counting on the next round being soon enough that this round's reply card won't have come back to you yet.

(Which I'd be all for.)

spinjenny 04/14/2013 #

I'm waiting to receive the card sent by @apelser for R6. I'll wait until the last couple of days, then send a new one if necessary.

EmilyT 04/14/2013 #

@pne it isn't bothering me to have 2. I am just sending one, then sending the next - so I guess each card I get is skipping a round. I already have 2 cards in so I don't really want to add a 3rd of my own, until I get a card back. It happened once when I was waiting on a card from Canada...sometimes mail between Canada and USA takes longer than either of us to exchange with Europe so I ended up with an extra one round. Also at some point I'll get one that needs to go back to the owner, then I'll be down to just one card that way.

Happycrazylion 04/14/2013 #

I have @michellewillow s pc.

mcovey 04/14/2013 #

@AnnieMaxine send me another one or several if you want and I will send them out and I will hold on to Liz;s in case she re-appears Lol

earthnk 04/16/2013 #

Lookout @ladydy5 there's a cute pc headed your way as of today. Ready for round #8. Smile.

abbyaguas 04/17/2013 #

Can you define what's an extra large postcard?

AnnieMaxine 04/17/2013 #

An extra large postcard is anything bigger than 5x7, I would say. Anything larger than that is not even going to fit in a birthday card-type envelope. I know there are a few floating around like that....but I know those that get them find it annoying and sometimes expensive to send!

mdkrouwel 04/19/2013 #

I got Dominic Kirby't PC today!

ladydy5 04/19/2013 #

Holding on to one received for the next.

spinjenny 04/20/2013 #

@suesuzieq 's card arrived today for round 6, so I'll be sending it off for this round.

@GrammaG 's card has also arrived, sent by Philip for this round, so I'll send that for round 8.

spinjenny 04/20/2013 #

Correction .. it's Barbara Cummings's card, not @suesuzieq 's.

inthewild 04/22/2013 #

Just back from a 10 day break after a major op. Opened SB for an address and Grinch's card went in the mail today.

mcovey 04/22/2013 #

mcovey 04/22/2013 #

thanks @danushaj for letting me know mine is in rotation , love communication !!

Carolien25 04/25/2013 #

I haven;t seen my name in both this round and last round. I hope it's still in rotation!

Deeno1105 04/29/2013 #

I received from @marknitall in Australia. This is the first stop .
