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!

inthewild 04/15/2014 #

I'm having my 70th birthday on April 27th and my DH is treating me (us) to a day stay on a Stellenbosch Wine Estate, so I can also spend the day with my ailing 94 yr old Mom who lives a short drive from there. I'll be back home on 30th, so my Postcard will go out a day late as I'm not taking my laptop along, but I don't want to miss out on a round. For those celebrating Lent, blessings to you all.

I have LOTS of pen pals and I trade ATCs with many people through Instagram so I PROMISE that I am reliable:) this just seems like a really fun swap and I would really like the chance to participate!! Thank you for your consideration:)

I'm Emily Truman. I keep forgetting to write my username when I start a new card. I'll do that next time but it may be awhile. Feel free to write @EmilyT on it if you'd like! Thanks :-)

arianneroxa 04/16/2014 #

I have Betty Maxwell's postcard from Round 15 (no username mentioned). My name will be the fifth, and it's traveled to some fairly exotic places so far. :)

tizzicat 04/17/2014 #

Can I start a new pc as my other one seems to have got lost in transit somewhere?

AnnieMaxine 04/17/2014 #

Lots of people have not had theirs listed, but it still may be in rotation. There are over 100 participants and there is definitely not 100 comments, so LOTS have not checked in. If you have only one postcard to pass this round, you can add a new one of yours, but it would be preferred to keep the amount of postcards in an envie to a minimum.

Deeno1105 04/18/2014 #

I'll be sending a card belonging to @mdkrouwel It started on R13. It has room for a couple more signers.

nightrainboww 04/20/2014 #

I still have not received my partner's card from the other round so I have nothing to send this round. :( She marked it sent on Apr 9th, and coming from US it would take around 2 weeks to arrive - thanks to Easter holidays we haven't had any mail coming since 17th, and the next mail day is 22nd. I will join the next round!

inthewild 04/21/2014 #

I'll be posting out (on 30th) Carlyn Clark and Colleen Genore's cards that have just landed from Suesuzieq. . Both have recently started traveling so there's lots of stops to come.....

bookworm66 04/21/2014 #

At the time of writing I haven't received my card. If it doesn't arrive tomorrow I'll have to start a new one. The bank holidays have held things up.

AnnieMaxine 04/21/2014 #

Additionally, I have three more that need to be back into rotation: @draco , @siouxx05 , and @AgnesP

If anyone doesn't have a postcard today to send off, please let me know if you are in the states. I can send you two to get back into rotation. I can post it tomorrow and it will be to you in plenty of time before the "Send By" date.
