Hello everyone!

I'll be taking over hosting these swaps. Thanks to those who previously hosted this swap: @cmalaina and @bbade

Swap details copied from @bbade (with a few additions).

This is round #12.

If you already have a notebook, fill out a 2-page spread and pass it along to your partner. Remember to include the date, your Swap Bot username, and the swap name & round number.

For anyone new to traveling notebooks and this swap series, or if you're starting a new notebook, here's how it goes:

To start, find a small soft cover book about A5 size (approximately 5x7 inches). Something like a travel notebook inserts with about 30 pages should work perfectly. The book should not be too thick or heavy and please no spiral books. Homemade notebooks are OK! Think about the weight of the book and the cost of sending it. Keep in mind and be considerate to others who will have to pay for your notebook to be shipped each round.

The first person starting the book will decorate the cover however they choose, wallpaper, wrapping paper, anything you like.

Inside the front cover write your name, address (so the book is returned when it is full) swap name & round number, and your swap-bot username.

Fill out two full pages in the notebook with an introductory letter, an entry about your day, where you're from, the weather, or whatever you'd like. Add photos, stickers, washi tape, drawings, etc, if you wish. I've seen A-Z lists on someone describing themselves, Netflix show rating lists, funny jokes, favorite quotes, collages. Add anything you would like to see someone else do. Be creative! Use only pens that do not bleed onto the next page, please. Don't forget to date your entry. You may add something separate for your partner if you wish, a pen pal intro letter or something else related to their likes, but you don't have to. Also, write your Swap Bot ID so you can be rated.

When you are done with your pages, send the book onto your partner.

That partner will then wait for the next swap in this series and fill out their pages and send on to their partner and so on.

Once the book is full, the last person to write in the book will send it to the owner of the book (as stated on the inside cover).

At the end when your book is returned to you, you will have a book full of stories and entries from all over the world!

This swap will take commitment to subsequent swaps in this series. If you don't plan on continuing with later swaps please don't join. I'm sorry but this is supposed to be fun.

Do not worry if you miss a round while waiting to receive a notebook. It matters more that you join rounds in order to get a partner and be able to send notebooks on.

Due to the random nature in which partners are assigned, you may receive a journal you have already added to. If that happens feel free to add to it again. Or, you may receive your own journal. If that happens, feel free to add something to your journal or just hang on to it & pass it along in the next round.

If you have any questions or concerns, please message me!
