Description:

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!

IF THIS IS YOUR FIRST ROUND:

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. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

IF YOU PARTICIPATED IN THE PREVIOUS ROUND(S):

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!

@AnnieMaxine I'm sitting this round out due to vacation during the "send by" week. I'll continue on in R29.

anneliese66 06/17/2014 #

So do I send to one of the participants in the group or will I be assigned a person to send to?

Theglasslantern 06/17/2014 #

I'm new but can I join?

spinjenny 06/18/2014 #

@anneliese66 and @Theglasslantern ~ please read the swap description carefully. It says that you must have 50 swaps before you can join this one. That is because in a swap like this, it is very disappointing if you have sent out cards and one person breaks the 'chain' so you never get your cards back. With so many swappers involved in the chain, the risks are higher than for most swaps. Our host is protecting the swappers who are allowed to join.

I know it is very frustrating when you are new here and are not allowed to join some of the swaps you would like to join, but later you will appreciate why some swaps have rules like this. There are plenty of 'newbie-friendly' swaps which will welcome you, and groups specially for newbie too, in which you can build your swapping reputation so that you can join higher-commitment swaps later.

Caddi 06/18/2014 #

Sending on @Deeno1105 (Round 16) and @mamarochat (Round 19) - both have room for just a few more signers. Also love that both visited mamarochat on their travels :)

racheledj 06/26/2014 #

I will be joining in r29, after being off since r23. I will be sending on one from Gina, in Germany, i can't read what her username is.

Sacha 06/27/2014 #

I haven't received the previous card yet.....what to do now?

pne 06/27/2014 #

@racheledj might be @schaefchen .

@Sacha I’m in the same position as you. What I’ll do is wait till the end of today and if the card still doesn’t arrive, make one of my own and send that out on Monday.

Then when the R27 card arrived I’ll probably send it out in the next round (R29, if I manage to sign up in time), possibly together with the R28 card.

Sacha 06/28/2014 #

Received the card today so will be sending out in this round! The envelope was torn apart and send out in a sealed bag ;-) Thank you for the reaction @pne

inthewild 06/29/2014 #

Have sent on Jesica Prokupek's card started 15 Jan. Still plenty of space for more travel.

preslarb 06/29/2014 #

Has anyone seen my pc? I will be sending along Mandy Jansen's card this time around.

Elisabeth 07/ 2/2014 #

Juhu, hurray, I just got my card back! It has seen Seattle, California, hte Oak Forest (got to look it up), Wisconsin, Marrysville, New York, from there jumped to The Netherlands, and back to the U.S.A.: Albuquerque, two places I cannot read as there's a big black stamp across, and Justin, Texas! I wish I could have travelled along with my postcard. Thank you for everybody moving it on!

Deeno1105 07/ 5/2014 #

I now have a card that arrived too late for this round (was sent from Findland). It belongs to Becky Grundei(no swap bot name). I'll send it traveling in Round 29.

Deeno1105 07/ 5/2014 #

@Caddi ...thanks for the update on my card. It's always great to know it made it's journey.

Deeno1105 07/ 5/2014 #

@EmilyT .....I also received your card (started R23) from Finland. It will go out again next round.

ladydy5 07/ 7/2014 #

I wish the ones Internationally would send quick as received. I can't find Ladydy5's original one yet.

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
