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?!

Does anyone, ANYONE have any of my cards? I have about 3 in circulation, or have they all gone missing??

Anyone seen mine?

Soph 02/13/2014 #

@mdkrouwel Your postcard which started in R13 was sent to the United States in R21.

Mimi7 02/13/2014 #

I have 3 that are traveling together to send on, they are Cyn Richardson's card from round 9, Shirley Kimball's card from round 11, and Deeno Moss's card from round 11. They are all about one half full.

mdkrouwel 02/14/2014 #

@Sophiedarling Thank you very much!!

Deeno1105 02/14/2014 #

Thank you @Mimi7 & @mcovey for the updates on my PCs.

I'll be sending @shiloh102 in this Round. It has room for 3-5 more names.

Sternenfee 02/14/2014 #

Just one question. I started two rounds ago...so everything is still new. The card from the previous round hasn't arrived yet. I know I can wait a bit for it to show up. If it doesn't arrive on time...Do I start a new one then? And in the next round send then two cards maybe (from the previous and that round)?

EmilyT 02/14/2014 #

Postcard received and very well traveled - 6 states in the U.S., the UK, Indonesia, Spain, Malaysia, back to Indonesia, three more U.S. States then back home to Colorado :) Thanks to @maranda222 @mimi7 @AnnieMaxine Carolynne, Rachel D, Barbara, Smewy, Wiji, Kelly, Josep, Oriol, @jbuurb and @marles

Great Emily! Glad it reached you safely! @Sternenfee - yes, if you don't receive yours in time from your partner, you may start a new one.

palmettogirl727 02/15/2014 #

I'll be sending @thisismeAxiD (Meredith B's) postcard this round.

leilx 02/16/2014 #

I have Nicki Slater's and Kim...shoot, can't remember the last name, but she isn't on the list of ones to return. Starts with a G or H. I think the next person ought to return at least one of them, maybe both.

twobluecrows 02/18/2014 #

@Mimi7 thanks for letting me know my card is still out there :)

AnnieMaxine 02/19/2014 #

@Deeno1105 - All of the awesome and communicative swappers are the real people to thank! When everyone sends on time and signs up every time...it makes my job a TON easier!

AnnieMaxine 02/28/2014 #

PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE do NOT send more than 3 postcards in an envelope. If you happen to end up with more than that, PLEASE message me and get my address to send a few to me. Too many in an envie can get expensive!!!

Deeno1105 03/ 1/2014 #

I rec'd 2 cards yesterday. One belongs to @misscorina & the other from Nicole S. in Detroit, MI (no swap bot name)

leilx 03/ 2/2014 #

Just received Jessica Prokupek's (no swap name) card and will send on next round. Wondering if anyone has seen mine...leilx

latentsmile 03/ 2/2014 #

Received Siobhan Henn's card. Sending on in 23! @leilx that's me. J. PROKUPEK...but I always write my user name on cards I start so I'm wondering if this was one started by someone when mine went out of circulation? I'd appreciate having the username added. <3

palmettogirl727 03/ 3/2014 #

Success story! Received my completed PC home today after its journey around the U.S., and travels abroad to South Africa, Australia, & the U.K. Thanks to @pendandink @preslarb @inthewild @danushaj @twobluecrows @vickyen and @bookworm66 for signing and forwarding!

Deeno1105 03/ 4/2014 #

Anyone know swap bot name for Nichole Spencer in Detroit, MI. I need to pm her with a question about her card. Thanks in advance.

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.

EmilyT 04/ 9/2014 #

I'm looking for the owner, Rachel D whose card I passed on in this round. If you are her or know her profile ID, please contact me!

EmilyT 04/ 9/2014 #

Wow, nevermind! Strangest coincidence, the exact card in question already came back to me 2 rounds later...my issue is now a non issue.

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
