In the past, I’ve given a sneak-peek here and there of my New Zealand travel journal, so I thought why not show it all by shooting a ‘Flip Through’ vlog. Even though I’ve actually shot and edited the vlog, our slow internet (and a questionable video quality) prevented me from sharing it with the world. Instead, I’ve decided to go along with a good ol’ photo post. This, however, also means that I can’t show you everything because this would require way too many photos. However, you’ll get to see a lot more than in the past. Maybe I’ll be able to shoot and upload a decent ‘Flip Through’ vlog in the future that’ll include every single page of my travel journal, but in the meantime this should suffice.
For my travel journal, I’ve used a sketchbook in A5 (I can’t remember the thickness of the paper anymore) that would be suitable for water colour paintings. Don’t ask me why I decided to decorate the outer appearance with a Red Riding Hood motive, I don’t know it either. Why, oh why haven’t I transformed it into my very own Red Book of Westmarch? We will never know. Recently, I’ve experimented with an A6 sized travel journal for my London trip in May and I came to the conclusion that A6 is too small for me. I tend to include postcards and flyers which don’t fit into an A6 sized notebook. In the future I’ll go back to using an A5 sized sketchbook.
Even though I still have two unfinished travel journals (for Wales and Scotland) I really can’t wait to start another one…hopefully, my next travel journal wil be finally another New Zealand travel journal!
