i'm the kind of traveler who makes an intense itinerary before leaving home and race from major tourist attraction A to major tourist attraction B. it's terrible really. i first picked up this journal because i was attracted to it's charming illustrations. as i flipped through it, i realized that it was so much more than your average travel journal. of course you have the usual things... measurement conversions, common phrases in different languages, and time zones. but it also has an international dumpling guide (my favorite part of this journal... korea - mandu, germany - klopse, india - samosa) and international coffee and tea traditions. the pages are filled with suggestions to get you to sit back and really observe your surroundings and catch all the little interesting bits that you may overlook while running between museums and historical sites. anything from "draw every item within your reach at this very moment" to "ask a stranger what they spread on their toast". there's also...

Such a cute journal! It's long, but is not wide, so it fits perfectly in my bag. It's sturdy and is very colorful both on the cover and on the inside. There is a little pocket in the back for things like cards or tickets. It also has a stretchy strap to keep it closed. The tasks inside are very fun and creative. If you're not willing to ask a total stranger for something, do not buy this. This journal is for people who want to enjoy their vacation, but also want to have fun, unique memories. Buy it, IF you're not afraid to use it :)

The suggestions and prompts help you look at place with different eyes, whether it's your hometown or dream destination. There's several blank or mostly blank pages for making whatever notes and doodles you want. The book is organized into six sections: Credo, Before you go, Journeys, In the Field, Reference and Notes.
Credo is a page of the author's, Kate Pocrass', thoughts on travel.
'Before you go' includes the usual useful fill-in-the-blanks. For example: packing list, emergency contacts, "I must see.../Avoid the...", and an address list for sending snail mail.
In 'Journeys', you find things like a blank page instructing you to "smudge this page with whatever you are drinking" and blank boxes to draw "objects... that have slightly different signage than what you are familiar...
