Istanbul travel journals. Simple covers made of my 2009 Snow & Graham calendar (I take these apart every year and do something with the pages) wall paper, assorted other scraps. A few of you may recognize little bits here and there that you sent me. I enjoy incorporating those “love offerings” into my travel journals. One of my favorite things about traveling for the last few years is hearing from people via comments or emails who have been to the same places. And sharing the experience with other people who haven’t been, or may never go.
I wanted to travel for many many years before I actually did. I remember being nourished by all of those Travler’s Tales books. This is all to say, take heart. If travel seems like an impossible dream you’ll never see come true, keep dreaming. You’ll get there. I know you will. And in the meantime, I’m tucking you into my pocket and taking you along for the magic carpet ride. Through video, through writing, through photos, through these journals. You’re there.
I’ll show you the inside pages and more cover progress later in the week. Maybe tomorrow!
