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 with."
In 'In the Field' you can record things like important location information (home base, best way to get around this city, etc.) and "Itineraries from which to deviate".
At the back is a mix of references: voltages of various countries, measurements, clothing sizes, simple translation (hello, goodbye, yes, no, please, thank you, etc. in English, French, Spanish, German, Japanese, Mandarin, Italian and Hindi) as well as pictures to point to when words fail (toilet, phone, etc). There are also two somewhat unusual (but cute and well illustrated!) references: "International Dumpling Types" and "Various Coffee & Tea Traditions".
There's an elastic band to keep the book closed. The book measures about 4 1/4" by 8 1/2" by 1/6". It's not exactly pocket-sized, but definitely still easy to carry around.
I didn't buy it because the cover was dirty but I tried to find it as soon as I came back home.
I'm travelling around the US for a year and each time I visit a new city I choose a page.
There are so many categories I can fill. I love the drawing I love how the author makes us exploring the city.
I already have memories for a life time just looking back at some pages.
I advise EVERYONE to buy it it's so different so funny when you're travelling.

Returning this because it wasn't what I expected. I want a prompted journal that asks where I went, where I stayed, and what I saw, did, and ate, but this asked very very specific... Read morePublished 1 month ago by Molly Petray
