New Lands and New Adventures

No, Im not going anywhere ...I wish it was me but sadly I dont see any travel adventures in my plans any time soon...
i did however get an Etsy custom order from a lovely girl called Lindsay who is off to Europe next week for a whole year!!! awesome...lucky girl!!
She wanted a fun Travel Journal that she could fill up with words, sketches and doodles, observations, note down things, scribble things....jot ideas and dreams...you know what I mean
so here it is!!

have a safe journey Lindsay and most of all have a FAB time!!
So hands up who here needs a holiday?? ....yeah me too!!

I shall leave you with some travel quotes...

If you reject the food, ignore the customs, fear the religion and avoid the people, you might better stay home. ~James Michener

The traveler sees what he sees. The tourist sees what he has come to see. ~G.K. Chesterton

Like all great travellers, I have seen more than I remember, and remember more than I have seen. ~Benjamin Disraeli


  1. Disraeli, sounds like my 93 yr old grandmother. Love the blog, would be nice to travel, refreshing, we all need a break, I know I do. Unlike 'Cheers', I want to go where no body knows my name.

    Have fun Lindsay, be safe, have fun, and I for one can't wait to see what you will share.

  17. I'm sure she will make many lovely memories in that journal.

    So, many displaced people. My grandfather escaped Poland in WW2 when he was a small boy, also never to return. Thanks for sharing your story on my blog.

    I love that Travel Journal! It's so original!
    And the first photo is so inspiring... =)

    Have a nice day!


  20. Thanks for the birthday wishes. My ma made me two journals. So sweet. Can't wait to start them. I have one from last year's birthday that I am writing in at the moment.

  21. I totally agree with your travel quote "ignore the customs, fear the religion and avoid the people, you might better stay home".
    It is amazing how many home comforts people insist on taking with them nowadays! I do wonder why they bother if they don't even feel like they have left their homes.
    Great journal.

    Your journal will make Lindsay's trip even more special (isn't it an honour to create such a thing to keep special memories?)
