"A good traveler has no fixed plans and is not intent on arriving."

~Lao Tzu

A perfect companion for all your travels! The first page of the journal features a photo of an old compass, and is captioned with the above quote by Lao Tzu, a philosopher of ancient China, circa 6-4th century BC. The rest of the journal is blank, just waiting to be filled with your travel adventures! (This journal can also come without the quote page. Please let me know in 'Notes to Seller' at check-out if you would prefer this.) The leather is a full-grain distressed dark brown. The book is kept securely closed with a coordinating long leather strap that wraps around the book and ties or tucks underneath itself in the front. NOTE: The oils in this leather will eventually stain the first and last pages giving it an age-worn antique look.
