Episode 002: Have you seen travel journals lately? Most are bulky, frilly, over-the-top books with wide-ruled paper (ie unusable), arty paper with background motifs ON THE PAGES, not to mention covers that beat “travel” over the head with retro maps or illustrations of jet-set couples toting vintage bags.
