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 unless instructed otherwise.

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!

I have never joined, because of my limits. I do love to watch these swaps, the stories get better with each one.

Mimi7 10/16/2013 #

I will be sending out a new postcard from myself because the one I received from round 15 was full and I sent it home! :)

AnnieMaxine 10/16/2013 #

Great to hear, @Mimi7

kerrydwynn 10/16/2013 #

I have NO IDEA where mine is -- :-( Michele McColl (kerrydwynn) I am so looking forward to seeing it!

twobluecrows 10/16/2013 #

I still haven't received a PC from Round 14, it was coming from Wiji Widayati (cookiekawai), so if you sent a card to her in R13 or so, you can let whoever was it's originator that it may be lost, as sometimes happens. :( I'm going to start another for R15.

twobluecrows 10/16/2013 #

Oops, I meant a new card for R16!

mcovey 10/16/2013 #

I have Sue S from Australia and Diane from IL , and gabby's from France

qwerty2k 10/16/2013 #

I have Chantal from Toronto. It's about two-thirds of the way filled.

siouxx05 10/16/2013 #

OMG! Woohoo! One of my cards is still alive! Thank you @mcovey :)

HelloCindi 10/16/2013 #

I've got 3 postcards that I will be sending off for R16-- @fruitbat5150 Rozi A. from Singapore & Belinda W. from Georgia!

dakotadee 10/17/2013 #

I have Wanda (namabear) from Ca. Not sure if my card are still going

spinjenny 10/17/2013 #

I have @Suzanne1804 's card from R15, but I still haven't received a card from R13. @valmac sent that one on August 29, so it should have arrived by now, though sometimes postcards take a very long time. I don't know whose card it is, though.

AnnieMaxine 10/17/2013 #

If the person did not write their username on their postcard, please message me their name on their postcard and I will give it to you. Then if you could please write their username somewhere on the postcard, that would be helpful for listing in future rounds. I would list them all here, but I want to be sure everyone gets the correct username...and PM's seem to work easier than that.


ZzMonstruozZ 10/17/2013 #

HI! The beautiful postcard by my side belongs to BARBARA BRANDT from ALBUQUERQUE (no nickname) =D

I want to let all of you know that my postcard, started in the first round has been sent back!!!! YEEEEEEEEEP!!!!! Thank you soooooo-o much to @susieq11 and all the people who have signed on it! ^_^

HelloCindi 10/18/2013 #

@BlackRainbow I'm going to put your swap-bot name on the card, so it'll be easier for future rounds! I'd say your card is about half way full... Still got room for more signatures depending how people decide to write their info on the card :)

palmettogirl727 10/18/2013 #

Deeno1105 10/21/2013 #


I rec'd my original PC from R5 (2/18/13). My card must have a fear of flying. It only left the U.S. once to visit Canada.

Thanks to: @penandink Carolynn in LA, Amanda in MI, Edith in AR, Grace in NJ, Nadia in Canada, Frank in IA, & Mymie in MA. for signing & sending my card. I'm not sure, but it seems to have been sent home from Frank in IA..........Thank you!

Deeno1105 10/21/2013 #

@AnnieMaxine ~ How long will this swap continue? It must be rough on you watching this swap but I think I speak for the group when I say "YOU ROCK"! #1 swap! Thanks for all your time & effort in making such a fun swap.

AnnieMaxine 10/21/2013 #

I don't know how long it will continue! I guess until no one signs up anymore? For the record, if anyone no longer wishes to participate, at any time, please send your cards back to me (PM me for my address), and DO NOT sign back up for another round. I will get all postcards back into rotation.

Glad folks are getting theirs back now! :)

AnnieMaxine 10/21/2013 #

I just received @mskadie 's super unique postcard to send out for this round. This was its 4th stop on its journey!

mcovey 10/22/2013 #

@vckyen started R15 I am 3rd person to sign

@vivaladiane rounbd 14 started I am second to sign

@Sue S I am 11th person to sign plenty of room left

@gabby10601 started in round 4 still plenty room since it is oversized

StarMouse 10/22/2013 #

Hi folks! I have no idea where my cards are, but I have great faith that they will return to me eventually. I love this swap. I give AnnieMaxine a star every round. If I could, I'd give her more! Thanks so much for this very interesting swap!

twobluecrows 10/22/2013 #

I received the postcard from Round #14 finally! It just takes a little longer from Indonesia, so if you are waiting for one from there, have a pinch more patience ;)

Hollycarole92 10/23/2013 #

Haven't received the PC from the last round or been rated for the PC I sent along in the last round. :/

N1ght0wl21 10/23/2013 #

Oh shoot I just sealed the envelope…I can see…I am sending cards on for…
Mary Covey
Julie L. Smith
and a THIRD new card for myself since I have not seen mine in a few rounds.

AnnieMaxine 10/30/2013 #

@latentsmile and all others. Please do not start a new one unless you did not get one in time for a round or have been instructed by myself to do so. We don't want to get too many cards floating around. Just because you haven't seen your name doesn't mean your postcard is lost.
