What is a Flat Adventure?

A Flat Adventure is a simple, fun and educational way to learn about the world around you. It all starts when someone creates a Flat Adventurer with a piece of paper and a few crayons or markers.

The Flat Adventurer is then placed in an envelope and mailed to a friend - maybe close, maybe far. Your friend receives the Flat Adventurer and takes him around for a few days as a virtual guest, and posts pictures and stories on the Flat Adventure website about what they did during the visit.

The Flat Adventure website provides interactive maps, geographical data, cultural information, pictures & more about the places each Flat Adventurer visits, allowing you to follow along with the adventure. You literally see the world through your Flat Adventurer's eyes!

When the visit is completd, the Flat Adventurer is mailed to someone else, and the journey continues. Best of all, it's free!

Do you want to start your own Flat Adventure?

Starting your own Flat Adventure is easy! Just create an account and in a few short minutes the adventure can begin!

Did your receive a Flat Adventurer in the mail?

Lucky! However, you might be wondering what you have to do. It is pretty simple, really. Imagine for a moment that someone you know has come to visit for the first time and you want to show them around. Where would you go? What would you do? You don't have to go far. These are the types of things you will do with your Flat Adventurer. It is a great excuse to get out and explore the world around you.

As you take your Flat Adventurer around, snap some pictures and write down a few notes about what you are doing. Then, go to the Flat Adventure website, post your pictures and tell your stories. After you post them, others can read and learn as they follow along with the adventure through the website.

You might do everything in a single evening. Or, maybe you will keep your Flat Adventurer for a couple of weeks, posting pictures and stories as you go. It's up to you! A Flat Adventure becomes a story, and you are the author of one the chapters!

When you are done, place the Flat Adventurer in an envelope and mail him to someone else - anyone you want. You can return to the Flat Adventure website and follow along as the journey continues.
