(I have restarted this swap series with the permission of former coordinator, AnnieMaxine. I'm leaving her wording up for now.)

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 screen name 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!

Thanks so much @lostinavalon for continuing with this! Appreciate it!!!

London13 03/24/2015 #

Yes thank you. I have not send the one I had back yet, so I am joining now.

mdkrouwel 03/25/2015 #

Thank you very much for continuing this group! It is my fav swap!

spinjenny 03/25/2015 #

Thank you for continuing this very popular series! I've only just received a card from R40, so I'll contact the owner and check that she will be continuing with the series under its new management.

I'm wondering what should happen to any cards which have already been sent home in response to AnnieMaxine's email. Is it OK to put them back in circulation in this or later rounds? I have one card which I sent out in the last round, so if that comes back it will only have had a single stop-over. My other one in circulation was started in R33, so that might still have quite a bit of space left too.

pne 03/25/2015 #

I thought that was the reason that @AnnieMaxine asked for cards to be sent home in an envelope (rather than naked and stamped) -- then they could be sent back out again in another kind of swap.

spinjenny 03/25/2015 #

Ah ... I missed that bit. I only skimmed it as I didn't have a card to send home yet. Thanks for pointing it out, @pne

bookworm66 03/25/2015 #

I almost sent my other cards off this morning and have now signed up.

smadronia 03/25/2015 #

If you have my card, can you send it home to me, stamped, if you haven't already? I'm going to drop out of the swaps for the time being.

S Martin Oregon City

That's what you want to look for, since my swap bot name might not be on it.

dachenhausa 03/25/2015 #

I am dropping as well. I contacted the people who I have cards for. Please send mine home if anyone has it. Thanks!

kim91262 03/25/2015 #

i was signed up for the last swap but never received an email...anyone want to pm me a copy so i know what's going on?

HelloCindi 03/25/2015 #

I am sending @CindyST Postcard in this round!

NatashaMay 03/26/2015 #

I'm sending on Aimee Aydlett's and Shirley Kimball's PCs in this round.

bookworm66 03/26/2015 #

I was just wondering who has my card. My original one from R 14 must have gone missing. So far I've had one back.

latentsmile 03/26/2015 #

I have Theresa Mather's card and the card for @Celticmoon that will be going back out in this round. <3

twobluecrows 03/26/2015 #

I think my card is lost in Nevernever Land, so I may start another in the new series. If you have mine, please send it home in an envelope, just in case.

flowerchild 03/26/2015 #

I plan on continuing but if anyone has one of my children and has decided not to play anymore please send them back home to me! @LisaLisa3 I have your PC from R40 do you want it back or should I send it on?

Deeno1105 03/26/2015 #

I have two cards to send. @ktina (has a lot of space left) and I have one that belongs to Aimee Aydlett (no swap bot name. It"s about half full). I will send them on this round or pm me if you want them sent home.

@lostinavalon ........I admire you for continuing this swap. It's my favorite one. I'm sure there's a lot of work coordinating this one but I do appreciate your effort as I'm sure lots of others are too.

Thanks Again!

inthewild 03/26/2015 #

Thanks for continuing - been with this one since round 1 and love it.

mchesser12 03/26/2015 #

I have Pat Locastro's PC. There is no swap bot name on the PC. Does anyone know Pat's swap bot name? I would like to contact her.

There is space for at least one more entry after mine.

EmilyT 03/26/2015 #

Ditto, thanks for continuing! It is one of my favorite swaps!

priori 03/27/2015 #

Can I send mine PC from other Traveling PC swap that ended very fast? I have only some 3 records on it but I want it to travel through more countries and to be filled up.

Sacha 03/27/2015 #

Thank you so much for continuing this swap! Anyone seen any of mine @Sacha

coolbeans 03/27/2015 #

I will be sending out this round 2 of Sarah Coller round # 37 & #39 @lostinavalon and Charlotte H.

qwerty2k 03/28/2015 #

For R41, I will be sending on cards belonging to @inthewild @misscorina and @spinweaver .. all three have joined R41 (yay!!) and want their cards to continue their travels.

lorettadog 03/29/2015 #

I'm dropping from this series, will whoever has my card send it home? Just put a stamp on it and send it naked, please!

I'm pretty sure my username is on it, but just in case.............it will be addressed to 'Sandy Warn'. :o)


palmettogirl727 03/29/2015 #

If anyone has a PC for palmettogirl727, please send it home. It's a Hilton Head Island map, and has been gone for a long time. Thanks!

pne 03/30/2015 #

Johanna51 03/31/2015 #

lorettadog 04/ 1/2015 #

I am dropping this swap. If you have my card, please send it home. Thanks.

Celticmoon 04/ 3/2015 #

I missed the email also but very glad its being continued. I have 2 pc for julebear to be sent out.

Celticmoon 04/ 3/2015 #

oops I have one for Theresa Mather and one for Rogue Artist (not julebear). Sorry

twobluecrows 04/ 3/2015 #

@lostinavalon thanks so much for taking this one over! Haven't received from round 40 yet either, also expecting it from South Africa! Starting a new post card this time around, hoping I'll have better luck! :)

LisaLisa3 04/ 5/2015 #

From the last round I have the cards for Sue S. and Rose Dziorny. I plan on sending them on.

TC 04/ 5/2015 #

Rose Dziorny passed away in 2014, so maybe send hers home?

user6937 04/ 5/2015 #

I haven't join in any for a long time, but my card was never sent home. Sandra Dowkes in Calgary

user6937 04/ 5/2015 #

That wasn't very clear - I joined in round 1; never got my card back. Sent many on their rounds but decided to stop - not sure what round that was (I could check, if anyone cares - especially the one who didn't send mine on)! :)

carol 04/ 6/2015 #

Sounds like a fun and easy swap! I've been away for a while--full time job got in the way, but I have some time now and would like to ease back in to swapping! This looks like just the one to start with!

ElaCaiu 04/ 6/2015 #

Sending on Cissy's from Belgium (R32).

LisaLisa3 04/11/2015 #

Oh no, I will send Rose Dziomy's back home. So sorry to hear that.

Phish 04/11/2015 #

If we're starting a new card, We don't need to put postage on the postcard itself right? I assume that's left to the last person to sign it? I just do the envelope postage....

lostinavalon 04/11/2015 #

That's right, @Phish The postage will depend on what country it's being mailed home from. If you put a US stamp on it but it's mailed home from outside the US, they'll have to remove that stamp and put their country's postage on it. :)

mdkrouwel 04/12/2015 #

I have two cards here, Betsy B and Niwaliu (I have contacted Niwaliu after her mail about the address). Both will be send in this round!

julebear 04/13/2015 #

thanks for sending mine on. I have two I just sealed to send on before I read all the comments. I missed the email from AnnieMaxine......

inthewild 04/13/2015 #

I'm sending @gusmom2000 s along - it has room for about 3 or 4 more destinations.

Vickyen 04/13/2015 #

For this round sending @niwaliu her pc in Taiwan, forwarding on @Johanna51 from round 22 and @kim91262 from round 36 - so glad you stepped in @lostinavalon Love these swaps and have gotten a few back home after wonderful travels! Hugs and Happy Swapping all! ;)

mcovey 04/14/2015 #

I have @mamarochat from R29

Elisabeth 04/15/2015 #

I will send Barbara Firth's and Monique Berry's card.

tlemon4 04/15/2015 #
