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 still haven't received from the previous round. Since it's coming from Australia to Europe I hope it gets here in time. If not, I'll have to sit this one out as I already have 3 of my own cards traveling and I don't want to add another one.

Johanna51 09/18/2014 #

Didn't reveive the round 31 postcard yet, because the sender says: I'm busy. Disappointing.

inthewild 09/18/2014 #

Our Postal workers have been on a strike - AGAIN - for the past 3 weeks. I'm signing up and will send out my swap on due date. If R31 has not arrived and I'm not able to rate due to the strike, I'll send one of my own and add it with the next round once it's landed here. Sigh.........

julebear 09/18/2014 #

I just sent a PC home yesterday. I'm really sorry I did not write down who it was....I know its going over seas from here (US).

Bizabeth25 10/ 3/2014 #

Sent mine on time and thought I hit the send button. Sorry!!!

inthewild 10/ 3/2014 #

Annie, please advise. I called the PO today. The mail division is STILL on strike. I have a new postcard ready to sent to Cathy but have been advised to wait till they're back at work. I'm happy to mail it off only concerned that it will take forever while they catch up with the backlog. I was told the 'new' mail will be sent out immediately when the strike ends. I messaged Cathy before posting due date,; I've also not received from R31, same problem no mail deliveries, local, national and international.

widelo123 10/11/2014 #

Received my traveling postcard which I started on swap #5. Thank you to all that signed it. It went from NC to NC, AZ ,AL ,Germany, and Greece.

inthewild 10/16/2014 #

Marked 'sent' as I receive the reminder every day - unfortunately news just in a short while ago is that our Post Office is bankrupt and they're applying to the Govt to bail them out - so till further notice, unfortunately I cannot take part, and there's is no other way of sending our mail other than to use a courier that is just unaffordable even for a small envelope.
