I collect travel brochures.
I have a box full of brochures from my past travels which I can’t bring myself to throw out.
I am particularly attached to the maps because we clung to those while finding our way through unfamiliar cities.
For some time, I have been looking for ways to use them in such a way that they bring back memories associated with those places.
Lately, I have been watching travel journals that some very creative people are sharing on Pinterest and Instagram and I am hooked.
They are not that easy to make and are extensively time-consuming.
But I decided to give it a go.
The picture at the top is my first attempt to journal a trip to Cairns in July 2017. It is obvious I need to work a lot on lettering.
Here are the maps, which are now forever preserved in the journal.
