I love to travel, and I love to talk about places I've been as well as hear about places others have been. (I can talk for hours about Cambodia)

For each monthly themed swap, you'll have 3 partners and send each of them a postcard with a note about a place you've been that follows the monthly theme. Use the questions that follow as a guideline for your note. This IS a WRITING swap!


Write about a place that you have visited or like to visit that is a historical monument. Where is it located? What historical event, person or place is celebrated? How often have you visited this place, or was it the first and only time? (Write as much as you can fit on the back of the postcard about this place.)

Write the Swap Name (Places I've Been - Feb2010), Swap Theme (Historical Monuments) and Your Name VERY CLEARLY on the postcard.

The postcards can be handmade or store-bought. It's usually best to check your partners' preferences 1st!

If you have a postcard of the "place you've been", that's fantastic, but it does NOT have to be. ONLY the message must be written about the place.

This swap is international, and is open to all, You will only be banned if you have really bad recent ratings, if you have any no-sends in this series of swaps, or if you have failed to meet the swap requirements in this series of swaps.

Happy travels!

As always, if you have any other ideas for monthly travel themes, please share them. I will gladly use your ideas on upcoming swaps!

DISCLAIMER: This swap is intended to be a writing experience. If you fail to adequately write about this month's theme, your partner may rate you a 3 for not meeting the swap requirements. Please read the theme questions carefully.

Great swap idea.

The idea was based on a recommendation by a participant from one of the past swaps in the series (but I can't remember who).
