Uniquely, the journals feature plenty of illustrations and quotes. Open the book to any page and on the left-hand side you’ll see a hand-drawn sketch. In Italy, you’ll find drawings of Michelangelo’s David, the Trevi Fountain in Rome, Juliet's balcony in Verona, gondoliers in Venice and the Leaning Tower of Pisa. In London’s journal, see the iconic armed guards and phone booths, the London Eye, London Bridge and many more essential sites. Quotes from famous works of literature and celebrated English, American, French and Italian personalities are interspersed. The extra material gives travelers a head-start on exploring the world-famous places for themselves.
Rather than overwhelming amateur travel writers with hundreds of pages, the journals keep it brief: about 100 pages total, with lined pages for writing and blank pages for drawing. They make excellent companions for travelers young and not-so-young, but would be especially useful for those planning a brief stay. With a little effort, create a valuable souvenir!
