these are the only pages in my travel journal with photos. originally i had decided against using any, but in the end when i got home i was too lazy to finish adding sketching to those pages. the second something starts to feel like a chore is the second i stop doing it. so the photos are an easy way to cover up the leftover white pages. i am never going to keep another travel journal that i do not write the dates in beforehand. once in amsterdam, it eliminated fretting about how much space to leave if i didn't finish a particular day's entry. some days for example, i only had enough time to get the writing done. that's the most important thing to me because i don't like a recall style of writing – writing about an event long after it's past. i like it to feel more immediate. just a personal preference. on days where i had more time, and there were plenty of those, i would go back to that particular day's section and add sketches/postcards/paper/whatever. and well, any blanks that were left. you see how i handled those.
i'm heartbroken. i've watched all the vera there is to see until series 3 is released. i just adore her quirky personality. so it's back to finishing up call the midwife, which is quite sweet and wonderful. thanks sharron with 2 r's, for telling me about it!
