Number of swap partners:1

Last day to sign up for this swap is 1 week delayed, so is the last day to send your cards. I will be in Italy from July 15 till August 6 and will assign partners as soon as I get back. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

PLEASE NOTE: Well-established folks ONLY (50 or more Type 2/Type 3 swaps completed). I changed the settings to an automatical rating of 4.95. If you wish to participate but your rating is too low, please contact me and I will check your profile and decide whether or not to let you in as well. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ PLEASE NOTE TOO: do not ad a new card as long as you still have a card to send out that belongs to someone else. You can pass on a max of 3 cards. If you have cards of your own still travelling, don't start a new one. Neither if you have others to send on.

If you have NO cards to send on (because you either haven't received or the card you received is full and you sent it back to its owner), of course you can start a new card. And pass it on with the ones you have to pass on. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

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 each month. 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. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~


1.) Please don't send more than 3 cards per round. Hang on to the extra ones and send them in following rounds. If you have too many, please contact me.

2.) Do not ad a new card as long as you still have a card to send out that belongs to someone else.

3.) Before sending out the cards to the next person, do check if the cards belongs to someone who is still participating. If they are not, please contact me about it.

4.) If you decide to stop the swap, please contact me so you can send your received cards to me and I can keep them in rotation.

5.) Do NOT send the postcard back to the original owner until the left side of the postcard is completely filled unless instructed otherwise. CHECK TO MAKE SURE YOU'RE NOT SENDING YOUR PARTNER'S CARD BACK TO THEM AS PART OF THE SWAP ROUND YOU'RE ON.

6.) 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.

7.) Do not send huge cards! It requirers extra postage!

8.) Each time you receive a card and you will send it on, write your name to it. Sometimes it happens that you receive a card which has your name from a previous round. Please sign it again. It simply shows the way this card has travelled around the globe, sometimes back and forth betwee the same country and even the same person. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

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 postcards back. So don't join if you don't think you can commit to it for the long haul. I will be checking EVERYONE'S profile and will ban anyone that I feel like. Thanks and happy swapping!

@nuta1618 is a bot. It's a shame they've come to Swap-Bot!

I have a card belonging to Anny C in Hong Kong to forward on this round.

I don’t know if anybody else has this problem with this pacific swap series, but the information is covered by ads on the right hand side. So I cannot see who’s hosting the swap, when the swap is due, I basically cannot see any information about the swap. Does anybody else have this problem? This has been like it since the day I joined it and is the only one that has this problem.

I dont have that problem @bstrong If you use another device, is it still invisible to you?

mdkrouwel 08/ 7/2022 #

I have a card that belongs to Rachel Schofield from Canada, does anyone know her nickname at Swapbot?

This is, in my opinion, one of the best posts that you have made. Your work is quite outstanding in both quality and quantity. I am grateful to you for it. cookie clicker unblocked

The ads aren't blocking anything on my page. I have just gotten a swap returned to me. (#113) It says it cannot be delivered and cannot be forwarded. I will get it out hopefully on Monday, October 24, 2022. My partner was Pattie McClimans (tatntole). Please do not hold this swap against her. It is my fault. I spelled a word in her address wrong. I apologize to everyone involved. Debra (TexyDeb) October 22, 2022 Also I have had many swaps with her and no problems.
