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?!

I'm sorry, I can't do it this round. I haven't received R20 yet since it's coming from Australia to Europe and I'm out of town until 29th so I can't check my mail.

mdkrouwel 01/30/2014 #

I still have not received a card from round 20. I contacted the sender twice, as she lives in the same country, the card should have been here already a long time ago. She hasn't replied to me yet. If I haven't heard anything about it next week, I will send in a new one.

flowerchild 01/30/2014 #

I have bookwarm66 from UK and Joy Hurley's from TN.

ladydy5 02/ 3/2014 #

I think I have two floating around of mine as I never seem to receive from overseas until pass send date. Sending another one to Washington instead and it will be marked R21 so I hope she gets it. Sent one in a homemade envelope and PO didn't like it and sent it back to me, I resent it and another hopefully she gets it today.

pne 02/ 3/2014 #

I got my R13 postcard back today! It was coincidentally in the hands of the person who was sending to me for R21 anyway :)

ladydy5 02/ 3/2014 #

After saying all that I received my international from Malaysia. Sending off to State of Washington with another card. Got a little confusing.

ladydy5 02/ 4/2014 #

I have received today R20 from Kelly Koo and R21 from Bookworm both are Malaysia postcards, I will send both to R22 when it is posted. Still would like to know where mine is Diane Yates in Tennessee.

siouxx05 02/ 4/2014 #

What is the point of decorating an envelope when the post office worker sticks stamps all over the art!?

asmom 02/ 5/2014 #

I had 3 to pass on, on their way to canada. the 3 I had were from Vickyen, Danusha J, and M. Collyer.

KarlaKC 02/ 6/2014 #

I received Lin Wiltrek's ( @shiloh102 ) pc in R20 and sent it off in R21. It appears she sent it off on its adventure in R16 and everyone is writing so small it is half-full. By the time it gets back to her, it may have gone through a full year of traveling! :)

sunspot 02/ 6/2014 #

Hey @apelser I'm going to be sending yours from round 11 home as soon as I fill in the last box! :D I guess that means I make a new one for me next round, right? If I don't have any to send out?

AnnieMaxine 02/ 7/2014 #

Yes, you may send a new one of your own out.

sherba31 02/ 7/2014 #

I will be sending out smokeyquartz1980's next round.

palmettogirl727 02/ 9/2014 #

I have Angela Coffin's (stiffneck78) PC. It has arrived safely to the East Coast, and has lots more traveling to do before heading home to NM.

AnnieMaxine 02/10/2014 #

Waiting for two swappers to click "Sent"! If they have not clicked "Sent" by Wednesday, i will list the next round and send their swap partners a postcard to pass on.

Thanks for everyone's patience!

Deeno1105 02/12/2014 #

I received a card belonging to @shiloh102 Someone wrote it in. Last name is Wiltrek. It's about 1/2 full now.

inthewild 02/12/2014 #

We have had a 2 week postal strike that is coming to an end thank heavens. They have all the mail to sort now and apparently some of it had been burnt according to latest reports. I hope this does not include my partners' forwarded p/c, keeping fingers crossed.m This is also affecting my other swaps, unfortunately.

inthewild 02/25/2014 #

Postal strike is over!! hope not another for a very long time.

sherba31 02/25/2014 #

@spinjenny I am sending yours home tomorrow.

@dlchick I am sending yours on this round.

sherba31 02/25/2014 #
