And what of the journal I took to New York City earlier this month?
I’m pleased to say that 1) it’s finished, 2) it’s looking quite fat and 3) it’s looking rather dishevelled.And I love that last bit. Travel journals are meant to look a little ragged, a little beaten up. They’re with you on your adventures and, if you’re anything like me, they’re shoved into bags they are too big for, they are worked on in coffee shops, restaurants and at 45,000 feet.They look careworn and weary. Exactly how they should look by the end of a trip.
