For me this is a huge book size-wise. I seldom make books that measure over 20cm in width or height - still, this time it was so fun to make a book of substantial size. I'm calling this a travel journal, but naturally it could well be used for just about anything else, too. This is not a backpacker sized travel journal, though, as it's quite heavy and not at all compatible with pockets. Maybe it's for people who travel like I do: more thinking and relaxing, less sightseeing and running around experiencing stuff.
Next week we're off to London with V for some time. There's still empty pages in our travel journal, but I'm hoping we'll soon fill them up.
