  1. Beautiful trip and journal.
    There you are doing your yoga pose in a public place!
    Fabulous style.

  2. I always try to art journal when I travel but never completely follow through. Do you have a portable printer with you for the pictures or you finish the journal off when you get home?

    1. Yes and yes... I have a portable printer. But, I print out the photos at home on an 8.5x11 inch piece of sticky back labels. Then cut them out.


Thanks so much for visiting!
