Travel Write II


In a couple of days, I am heading down to Costa Rica for a much needed break from the working world. Since I plan to "unplug", I will be blogging the way nature intended...with pen and paper. I picked up a couple of these animal print journals at West Elm yesterday in an attempt to channel a little of Osa Johnson's adventurous flair.

Because the pages are unlined, they double as a sketch book as well.

Update:
As cute as these little journals are, I was sorely dissapointed with how well they held up on the road. The paper seems to be coming loose from the binding after a couple of uses. Caveat emptor!

There is something to be said about pen and paper. In a world of technological advances, a great sketch or handwritten story in a beautiful journal is something to be treasured. Have a great trip.

I agree with "me, myself, and i". There is nothing better than writing and sketching in a journal when you are away. Hope you have a great trip!

Splendid!! You might consider a travel watercolor set - the vivid, exotic colors of CR are rivaled by few other countries. Safe travels!
