Every Woman's Travel Journal

My lovely friend Mimi got me this as a present for my birthday last year and I'm really looking forward to using it on my next big trip abroad. It is packed full of inspirational travel quotes from women, including quotes from famous female authors such as Jane Austen and Barbara Kingsolver. When I first recieved the book I read all the quotes back to back, and they certainly helped to ignite my wanderlust. In addition to inciteful tidbits from writers, the journal also includes packing and health tips, World maps, information about shipping,currencies and languagues, as well as an essay on writing on the road and a space to journal your own thoughts. I think it would be a useful addition to any travel aficioando's library. Click here to buy a copy.  

'As I passed a window, a young woman with a glowing tan and confident gaze
 stared back  at me. I was looking in a mirror'. Madeleine Cary.

'Too often travel, instead of broadening the mind, merely 
lengthens the conversation'. Elizabeth Drew.
