Do you love to travel? I know I do, and I like to keep a journal so I can remember all the great things I saw and did along the way. What can I say, my memory gets a little jumbled after about the third day of a trip! So, if you're anything like me, having a place to write other essential information is handy too. This journal has everything you need to stay organized and was written and handcrafted by me (Christine Marie Ford) with you in mind. Here's some key features of this new product...

- Genuine oil tanned leather (cowskin) in rich brown bound with red Irish linen thread. Note-this leather scuffs easily for a distressed look over time.
- 200 pages (both sides) 24 lb natural parchment paper
- pages are approx. 7.5" high x 5.5" wide (overall book size 8" x 6")
- the first 20 pages contain the following contents to help keep you organized:
* Personal Information
* Important Contacts
* Pre-trip Check-list
* Packing Checklist
* Travel Itineraries, Accommodations & Other Info
* Autographs (for travel buddies, new friends and others you meet along the way
* Daily Journal (the rest of the book has lined pages for your journal entries.
* leather placeholder with a special decorative ladaki bead
* Deluxe features
- inside front pouch decoratively hand-stitched
- matching card case
- optional custom monogram on front (up to 4 letters).
The monogram is subtly burned into the front cover on the bottom left hand side in a sleek, clean & stylish font. A pdf proof can be sent via email.

There's plenty of space in this journal for several trips!
