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?!

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!

I'm sending one from @Sacha from the Netherlands.

flowerchild 07/13/2014 #

I seem to have a passed on PC that has went MIA. I keep really good records of who I pass on in each round except for the round the PC went MIA...figures. If the person who sent (passed on) a PC in round #22 TO nightrainboww has any record of whose PC you sent I would really appreciate it if you would share the info with me. I feel bad that someone's traveling PC left my hands and was lost and would love to start another PC for them. Any help would be greatly appreciated, thank you!

tao67 07/13/2014 #

churlann 07/14/2014 #

As already mentioned to the host, I won't be participating in this round due to holidays/travel abroad. I will send the cards in the next round!

dlchick 07/17/2014 #

I'm sending one that belongs to Merideth Bushy that I received in round 26.

AnnieMaxine 07/17/2014 #

Some have multiple cards because the mail doesn't arrive to all people in time for each round, so they may receive two for the following round.

flowerchild 07/17/2014 #

So happy to see 2 of my 3 children alive and well and traveling the world...without me...

Bluegirl 07/25/2014 #

I haven't received anything yet. if I don't get anything I'll send a new card in this round.

inthewild 07/27/2014 #

Thanks for update Preslarb - good to see my p/c is still traveling :)

sunspot 07/28/2014 #

Sending out mine today. Last round I got 2. I think one has to go home now, but I'm not sure. It seems to me that it's filled, but it looks like the original owner had put extra lines above their own address. Generally here, the post people really don't like when there is extra stuff written above the address and under the stamp. Too much room for confusion. So I'm going to use my best judgment and send home. It has plenty of names already, so I think missing out on the possibilities of a few more but being sure of getting it home is best. :)

sunspot 07/28/2014 #

So what I'm trying to say is Danushaj, one of your cards is headed home!! :D

hazan33 07/28/2014 #

I didn't receive anything yet. Will send a new card today.

Soph 07/29/2014 #

I'll be sending a filled postcard home to Lynnette in Iowa (no swap-bot name).

AnnieMaxine 07/29/2014 #

Still waiting on 11 people to Send!

smokeyquartz1980 07/30/2014 #

Sorry, I sent last week and forgot to hit the button!!!!

Deeno1105 07/31/2014 #

*Wanted to thank everyone who signed my Cruisin' Route 66 card. I received it with open arms yesterday all filled. Thank you to @mamarochat for returning it and actually received it twice on its journey.**

spinjenny 08/ 1/2014 #

My card started in R14 has just made it home. Thanks go to @newrule , @flowerchild , @penandink . @JanHardt and Tania (no username given)! It appears to have been stuck for 8 months at one point, so I hope its eventual arrival encourages people still waiting for their own cards to return.

All my own cards are now back, so I'll send out a new one for the next round along with one from @jeepermom which has just enough room for one more entry.

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
