  1. Hello,
    I really love the travel journals! I was wondering if I could include some pictures of them in a book I’m working on about writing. It’s to inspire people to write and have them fall in love with it. Real people who write share their love of writing and so far there’s over 50 people included in this book. It will be very visual with pictures of writing spaces and tools. I’ve got a piece on travel writing and some other travel journals someone makes. I’d love to include yours as well.
    Your name, age, location and link to your Etsy page would be included.
    All good if you’re not interested. Just thought I’d check.
    JD.

    • That would be lovely, JD. I’ll be taking my own advice by grabbing one of my own travel journals and filling it with my adventures in Cairns next month! Thank You so much for your interest and I look forward to seeing the final book you create.

Did you enjoy my post? Don't be a stranger, write a hello! Thank You :)
