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?!

And too: If you ever receive more than 3 postcards in any round, please contact me, so I can get a few back from you. Just trying to keep postage down for everyone!

Can't join this one sadly, as we'll be on holidays until April 18th, but will join again after that! If you have my postcard, feel free to "pause" it until then if you want to :) Thanks and have a great swap!

Johanna51 03/14/2014 #

What to do? I started to join the swap Adventures of a travelling postcard in round 22. Now I join round 23, but still haven't received a postcard from round 22. What to do? Send again a postcard (of myself) as if it is the first time I join? And use the PC that I must receive from @Churlann in the next round? Anyone who can advise me?

AnnieMaxine 03/14/2014 #

Johanna - if you have not received your postcard in time (please wait until closer to the send-by date), you may send a new one of your own.

NatashaMay 03/14/2014 #

@mcovey I think it was R19. I'm sorry I've seen your comment too late so I didn't check before mailing.

mamalynn 03/16/2014 #

Received Kelly Haag's card + Nicki Slater's card from R1! Still room for a few more names... So will pass them on in the next round!

Bizabeth25 03/16/2014 #

I swear I am putting this on my calander so I don't miss the next one....

Johanna51 03/18/2014 #

Waited till the last day. Still haven't received the postcard from @churlann in round 22. So for this round I send a postcard to my partner as if it is my first round. And when the postcard of round 22 comes in, I'll use it in round 24.

Bluegirl 03/18/2014 #

EmilyT 04/ 9/2014 #

I am looking for swapper Rachel D. I sent your PC in R22. If you are Rachel D or know her profile ID, please contact me.

EmilyT 04/ 9/2014 #

Nevermind, the card in question just came back to me 2 rounds later, problem solved and what a strange coincidence.

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
