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") and your screenname 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 completed) 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 and will ban anyone that I feel like. 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.

ALSO: Do not destroy, bend, write on the front of, or ANYTHING else that destroys the integrity of the postcard. Treat the postcard how you would want yours treated. That's just etiquette, folks!

Additionally: If you stop swapping for more than three rounds, your name will be placed on the "Send Back To" list and your card will be sent back to you if it's still in rotation. This is only fair...why should a few of us do all the work and you just get to sit back and wait?!

kittyhahahotbot 01/ 6/2014 #

SOMEONE...ANYONE.....QUESTION.....This may appear to everyone super simplex but I have a question.....Directions read "On the postCard put your name on the RHS AND name of swap, etc on the LHS.................So, on the postcard the LHS will be a column of everyone writing name of swap, etc and THERE WILL BE A COLUMN ON THE RHS with the info above..............basically 2 columns?????? I just have to confirm cuz typically theres only and address on the RHS FOR MAILing.

hkappes 01/ 6/2014 #

@kittyhahahotbot - if this is your first round (and you are sending a new card that hasn't been in circulation), you write YOUR name and address on the right hand side (where the address normally goes). Then on the left side (where the message usually goes), write the swap name at the top. The first person to receive your postcard will sign under that with their name, city, country (and sometimes swap # or date). The second person will sign under that, etc. until it is full. Then the postcard will get a stamp and be mailed back to you.

hkappes 01/ 6/2014 #

has anyone seen either of my postcards (Heidi B.)?

I will send Theresa M's on :)

kittyhahahotbot 01/ 6/2014 #

Ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh. ....gotcha. THANK YOU. HAPPY NEW YEAR!

Deeno1105 01/ 7/2014 #

schaefchen 01/ 7/2014 #

I wish I could join, but have not received a postcard from R19 :-( So maybe I will join R21

siouxx05 01/ 7/2014 #

@schaefchen join anyway, it might turn up before the send by date. If it doesn't, send another of your own..

mamalynn 01/ 7/2014 #

tao67 01/ 8/2014 #

I received my postcard back today from R14. :-) Thanks to all the great swappers for signing it! Do I just start off a new postcard along with the one I received last round?

Elisabeth 01/ 9/2014 #

I also have a postcard of Cindi Fontanilla that I will send on and I will send back home Joanna Toblers postcard as she doesn't take part no more.

sunspot 01/ 9/2014 #

This is my first round! Sent mine out today after much hemming and hawwing over the right card. Hope I made the right choice!

siouxx05 01/ 9/2014 #

I received my postcard from round 4 (I think).. Thank you to everyone that has signed it! It certainly did some international traveling.. :)

danushaj 01/10/2014 #

Thank you to the lovely people who filled out the card for my son Callum! We were surprised how far it travelled each time!!!

gruskal 01/11/2014 #

I sent 3 cards on there way in R20....so I don't have cards for this round. I just saw my name in the comments above - YAY!

inthewild 01/12/2014 #

Still waiting for R19 card to arrive then will post out.... and hope that some day I'll receive one of my travelling cards as to date none has landed back with me. Delighted that some of yours have made their way home safely - enjoy!

KimberlyJDC 01/12/2014 #

This is my first swap of this kind so hopefully I'll get mine back sometime with lots of "travels" on it :-)

Deeno1105 01/13/2014 #

I haven't received a card from R19 nor have I been rated.

I have 2 circulating already, what to do if I don't get one to send on by the due date?

inthewild 01/13/2014 #

Sending two cards in this round - misscorina's card and Kim91262's card. Both still have room for room for about 3 more stops.

AnnieMaxine 01/13/2014 #

If you do not get your postcard in time for the next round, you can put another into rotation.

Deeno1105 01/14/2014 #

Thanks @AnnieMaxine I may still get it before the 16th.

EmilyT 01/14/2014 #

Received 3 cards this round but one is being sent home to Texas because it is full!

Elisabeth 01/17/2014 #

I received 2 this round: Jessica Prokupek and Mary Covey

Deeno1105 01/17/2014 #

I rec'd a PC yesterday and mailed it out today (one day late). I was in such a hurry, I didn't notice who's it was. It only had 1 signer before me so it has a lot of room to travel.

AnnieMaxine 01/17/2014 #

Think your postcard is gone and lost forever? I received @bungaalangalang 's postcard from ROUND 3 from a user that is no longer swapping! It has maybe three or four more places to travel before returning home. #neverlosehope

Deeno1105 01/19/2014 #

I rec'd a card from from my partner in S. Africa. Since I already sent my card for this round, it will go out in the next. It belongs to M Roscher in Germany.

spinjenny 01/21/2014 #

I just received a card belonging to Sherry Harmes. I think there is just room for one more entry after mine, so I will send it in R21.

AgnesP 01/24/2014 #

I have received kadie's puzzle postcard from my partner'kadie from Canada) with already 8 sign up.... still 3 places after me I think! will send it next round!

arianneroxa 01/29/2014 #

I'm sending on Jan Sudmeier's (JAN218) postcard, begun in R12. I will be the 10th name on it. :)

NatashaMay 03/23/2015 #

I'm sorry to see this swap end. Thanks @AnnieMaxine for keeping it going for so long. Hope I get to see my postcards return to me. I have lost track of them a while ago. Nataša May, Slovenia
