Grab your passports ladies and gents and let’s get ready to visit the world!
In order to sign up for this swap you must be willing to ship internationally (you may not have to). If you would prefer not to mail to a certain country (because of past trouble or you know that it is wicked expensive from where you live) then let me know and I will try my best to accommodate your wishes. Photocopy the proof of delivery if you are unable to get a DC#. Please check with your partner to make sure you word the customs form correctly so they don’t get any extra expense or hassle on their end. Please do not ship seeds of any kind. For further info on prohibitions: http://pe.usps.gov/text/Imm/Immctry.html
Craft one large, one medium and one small item and make a little welcome packet from your town‘s visitors bureau. (If you are tempted to go overboard - no pun intended - please let your partner know, but also keep in mind that if this goes well I’ll do a round 2)
If it is difficult for you to take and post photos - please let your partner know and send an email reminder closer to send out date. Photos in the gallery are not mandatory - just extra fun if it is possible.
PM me and your partner when you have sent and received.
Please put Traveler’s Swap in the subject line for all PM s pertaining to this swap.

I matched up people the best I could using the "magic donkey" method. I didn't intentionally put the first timers together, I just noticed it after I had already paired them up. I hope everyone has fun!
