About the Author

The journal is divided into two sections. In the first section, the page is divided into two parts, just the right size for postcards. You access the pockets from either the left or right side of the page, depending on the page. They're the right size for tickets, stamps, stickers, and other small items you pick up while traveling.
The downside is that they don't hold things very securely. The postcards stick out past the plastic and cover the page where you can write details down. If handled roughly or dropped, I'm pretty sure they'll just slide right on out. I have double sided stickers I could use to pin them in place, but I like being able to slide them out when needed to see the back information too.
The other half of the book is full page pockets accessible from the top. They can hold multiple brochures, maps, receipts...anything that won't fit the smaller, half sized pockets. Brochures are the right length to fit without being seen over the top of the book, though large maps or souvenirs will pop out over the edge of the book. In general, I would say the majority of items will fit nicely without sticking out.
Another pro for this travel journal is the spine. There is quite a lot of room to put your own identifying touch on it. I plan on using stickers or using a permanent marker to write the date and place of my trip on it. I do plan on investing in more of these as time goes on, so I'll eventually have a row of similar books on a shelf. This will make it easy to figure out which trip I'll be viewing.
The last con for the book is that I was hoping that it would be big enough to use for two trips, but because of the layout, there are just not enough pages to fit two trips in. As the pages are non-movable, you are stuck with the current layout. In other words, you'd have to put all the postcards together, then the brochures. There isn't a way of making it, postcards and brochures, postcards and brochures, if that makes sense. The organization would be messy and confusing with more than one trip involved.
Overall, I'm very pleased with it and will be buying more. It's not perfect, but for the price, it's worth what you're getting.
I will stress that this book is great for travel related tickets that may come in all shapes and sizes and if you intend to use it to store movie tickets or concert tickets the 'Just The Ticket' book is a far better solution.
The pockets make this easy for someone who lacks creativity, like myself, because I can just put stuff in the pockets and it looks great. For larger items. I separated the film from the center so it gave me for fill size pages with film covering. It also only took me about an hour to fill half of it, which is great if you have very little time to sit down and pull out your non existent crafting bins like me.
For the price and what I needed, this journal was worth it and I’ll buy another one when I’m ready.

But it kind of stops there.
There are places to put in pictures or ticket stubs but really thats it. I wish there was a bit more that the traveler could fill in or write about for each journey instead of just places to put in stubs.
But other than that, its nice.
