I had no time to journal whilst in Geneva, but I really want to set aside some time in the coming weeks to write down my experiences, memories and emotions from my time there, before they begin to fade away. I’ve been a bit hit and miss with journalling travels in the past – I kept a detailed travel journal in Borneo. I wrote extensively in the first half of my seven-month trip to Europe with Tara, but completely fell off the bandwagon in the second half. I managed to catch up post-return. Catching up on my part-written adventures from South America, New Caledonia, and South East Asia are on my list of things to do.

To help the process along, I’ve been eyeing off some fairly made journals. You can see I quite like world maps (in general, but particularly appropriate for travel journals)…

Yours Fairly,
