I love the idea of the traveling journal, but I'm too selfish to let mine go around the world, I'd be too scared all that lovely artwork from others would get lost or damaged in the post!
I also did a travel journal last year, it was when we went to the country to a relative for a week. I did lots of writing and little pictures of things. It started with packed suitcases, then the roadsigns, our arrival and on and on. I'm no artist but that journal still gives me pleasure and a good laugh to look back over!!
