Here are some peeks into the travel journal. I make one for every (big) trip I take and they are among my favorite souvenirs.
I like to put everything I can get my hands on inside...you know...brochures, business cards, stamps, menus, napkins, train, plane, tram and bus tickets....
Packaging, ads torn from poles, maps, postcards, photos...
I never saw a cocktail like this one before!

Don't these look like little stamps on this postcard?
(hello to Monika at the Stamp Museum)
I cut open a package of paprika and poured the paprika into a jar and added the package to the journal -- along with a goulash recipe on a postcard.
Smells pretty good too.

|I like adding LISTS to the journals. This is a list of what I saw out the train windows.|
In France I made a list of what was in my frigo. And in Istanbul and France I made lists of the sounds I heard outside my window.
Tickets from the boat ride on the Danube along with the "gingerbread" wrapper they gave us along with "free beer". There was a lot of beer in Prague. (But I don't drink beer).
Tram and subway map and tickets..
