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 (including the country!) 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!)


Hang on to the postcard(s) that you receive in each round. We will have another round as soon as everyone has clicked "Sent" in the previous 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!

Additional Note: I'd love to post some "success stories" for this swap. If you've had yours returned to you, message me and I'd love to post in the comments about it. Maybe that will encourage others to continue to participate!

twobluecrows 09/24/2013 #

@raspberryrose thank so much for letting me know you have my card, I've been wondering. :)

twobluecrows 09/24/2013 #

I don't have a new one yet, but my partner has "sent" from Indonesia, so with a little luck, it'll get here in time for this #15.

Tonight I'm having a bunch of friends over for dinner, I cannot wait :)

I have Ms. Patricia B.'s from Connecticut!

KamKat 09/25/2013 #

I have one question. I notice some people are saying they have more than one to send one, is there a limit to how many you can send your partner? or SHOULD I send more than one card? This will be my first round, and I don't want to "short" anyone. But, It also might be odd of me to start two and send them both to one person... I didn't see anything in the rules about how many to send. I would assume one, but I am okay with more...

AnnieMaxine 09/25/2013 #

Two may end up traveling together because mail sometimes gets backed up. Never send two of your own to travel together.

crmc 09/25/2013 #

I'll be sending bgailk's (Gail Knotternerus) card on. It's about 1/2 filled up, having been to UAE, Canada, Netherlands, Brazil and several US stops. I haven't seen my name on any lists in a while, anyone have it?

bookworm66 09/26/2013 #

I was wondering where my card had got to from Round 4?

pne 09/26/2013 #

@coolbeans Siobhan Henn is @Shevvy I think.

EmilyT 09/26/2013 #

I have @amber999 and Carolynne's cards to send out.

sapphiregypsy 09/26/2013 #

I wonder where my PCs are now? Or are they still making the rounds? :)

Anyway, I'll be sending out @rhynah 's pc on its first time travel.

JenniferKG 09/26/2013 #

These types of swaps make me wish I'd already done 50 swaps!! I can't join because I'm too new, but just wait until I've got the prerequisite number of swaps!! I'm totally signing up for this - when you all are on Round 35 or so. :)

Chrizolina 09/27/2013 #

Hello @AnnieMaxine I've only done a few swaps but I really want to take part in this one, will you let me do it? I promise I'll be responsible.

AnnieMaxine 09/27/2013 #

Sorry @Chrizolina I am very strict on the 50 swap rule. Please feel free to join when you have the appropriate amount of swaps.

flowerchild 09/27/2013 #

the following PC's have become such good friends on their travels that they are now traveling together -

I have Holly Godbey from Lexington KY no user name. It is headed for Fujairah a long journey from Cali. Still has room for about 4 or 5 more trips...

cmdunderground 10/ 4/2013 #

Carolyn Clark your card is on its way to its next location :)

Cubsfanjennie 10/ 4/2013 #

This might be a dumb question, but am I supposed to put postage om my card for the person who gets to send it back to me? or does the person that gets it full put the postage on?

pne 10/ 4/2013 #

@Cubsfanjennie remember that the last person to fill up your card might be from a different country and so your country's postage wouldn't help them send it back to you :)

Cubsfanjennie 10/ 4/2013 #

Duh!!! Oh yea!!!! Thanks @pne ....brain fart I guess!!!! LOL

SwapsAreFun 10/ 5/2013 #

Haven't seen mine for awhile so I am starting another one in the packet I send out next round. I received @mcovey and @ julebear 's cards from Round 13 today.
